How to Get Rid of Hamstring Problems WITHOUT Stretching

How to Get Rid of Hamstring Problems WITHOUT Stretching

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.

While there are appropriate times to stretch a hamstring, if you’re dealing with a strain or injury to the muscle or tendon—we’d ask that you consider a different approach.
