hamstringHamstring Pain

The hamstrings are the group of muscles that are located on the back of our thigh; there are 3 of them and they work together to do several things: bend the knee, extend the hip and rotate the lower leg.

The hamstrings are about 70% as strong as the quadriceps muscles (the muscles on the front side of the leg) and they have a tendency to be tighter since they are placed on “slack” when we sit so have more opportunity to become tight. Because they are “weaker” and “tighter” they are more prone to injury and are a major contributor to other ailments (back pain, hip pain, calf pain, leg pain).
