Tight Hamstrings

Why do I have Tight Hamstrings?

Hamstring tightness is caused from tight Psoas muscles.

This research paper [below] shows how the Psoas Major Muscle exerts huge compression and sheer forces on our low spine resulting in crumpling and severely shearing the lumbar spine.


This 3-year study into back pain across the globe published in the prestigious medical journal The Lancet reports that our current treatments for back pain are lacking in evidence of effectiveness. See article below


The biomechanics of this are that your Psoas mucles are attached to your Ischial tuberosities (your butt bones). As the Psoas muscles compress and compact over our spine from very early on (as we start to sit); they start to produce Huge forces that can tilt the pelvis.

The tilt is Forward, so we develop an anteriorly rotated pelvis. This is like a guide wire in a tent being pulled more on one side than the other. The result is that we have tight Hamstrings and our Abdominal muscles appear to be bigger on the other side.

This causes the Hamstrings to be overstretched which then results in too much constant Tension being put through the Hamstrings.  So there is less flexibility and movement in them.

Posturepro can get you amazing hamstring flexibility.
