I have many clients with one common problem. Football players, bus drivers, teachers and accountants, different walks of life but same complaints. Their backs hurt, everyday. The majority of them suffer from tight hamstrings. Tight hamstrings pull on your lower back muscles causing tight psoas muscles. Tight psoas muscles make your back ache. Both make you more injury prone.
The following stretches have helped my clients to not only live pain free, but perform at a whole new level. If you do these stretches daily, you should be able to eliminate your back ache too!
I utilize the AIS method of stretching, which is to hold the stretch for ONLY 2 seconds and repeat it 10 times.
