Hamstring Length – Ensuring Low Back and Knee Health
Chronic seated posture at work, in the car, and just in general will inevitably shorten the hamstrings. When they are short, they change the dynamics of the pelvis into the low back as well as the hip into the knee. Shifting from appropriate dynamics will not only create high levels of tension and stress in muscles but it will also produce compression and degeneration at the joints.
By restoring normal hamstring length, we ensure low back and knee health. When the joints are neutral and the muscles are pliable, we generally live a highly capable, pain-free life. Put in some work and give your low back and knees a break so they will stick around for years to come.
Good Luck and #keepmoving
