We commonly hear our clients with hamstring problems reporting things like:
“pain in my [actual] butt while sitting on chairs or in the car”
“feels way worse when walking or running uphill compared to downhill”
“it’s worse after not moving for a little while, and then better again while I’m walking or moving”
Pain is a tricky thing.
And 9 times out of 10, we hear that when people are in pain their temptation is to stretch those hamstrings.
