LOWER BACK PAIN
If you have tight hamstring muscles (the hamstring is the muscle that run through the back of each thigh), you could wind up suffering from lower back pain.
Tight hamstrings reduce the mobility of your pelvis, which in turn may increase strain and pressure on your lower back. Your hamstring muscles will better support your back and pelvis while you move if the muscles are strong and flexible.
Investing a few seconds of your life every day strengthening and stretching your hamstring will save your from lower back pain or may help you relive lower back pain if you are already suffering from it.
How to perform: sit up as straight as you can on a stable chair, bending from your hips reach forward with your hands for your knees, shins or tones. Keep a straight back, point your feet up and relax your shoulders. Breathe through your nostrils while you hold the potion for 20 to 30 seconds.
Flexible hamstring muscles can benefit the overall health of your body.
Remember the more your practice the more you will enjoy the benefits.
