MineFit Tidbit: Ham it Up!

Posted By Darrell Smith, Friday, February 19, 2016

Tightness in the hamstring muscle limits motion in the pelvis which can increase stress and strain across the low back. Stretching the hamstrings can gradually lengthen them and reduce the stress felt in the lower back. Hamstring stretching should include applying pressure to lengthen the hamstring muscle for 30-45 seconds at a time, one to two times each day. The hamstring muscles will lengthen over time, decreasing stress on the low back.
