Stretching Helps Back Problems

Just as strengthening the core muscles can help prevent back problems so can stretching, especially the hamstrings. There is approximately a 90% or more correlation between tight hamstrings in men and lower back problems. Clinically, I don’t see this as often with women, as they tend to be more flexible in general. However, with my male patients, the correlation is accurate. So for all you guys out there, time to start stretching the hamstrings before it is too late!
