What are the most common causes for tight hamstrings or posterior legs?
Unfortunately both of these are often overlooked:
1) Protective tension, which is muscular response to damaged tissue. This is that spasm in your back that spreads to your hamstrings, makes it difficult to walk, bend over or stand up from a chair. The muscles around the spine, hips and legs will contract in order to protect an injury to your spine or hip area. Repeated injuries can eventually cause chronic tight feeling in the legs.
2) Nerve entrapment, which is when the nerves get stuck to surrounding tissues. This will cause excessive tension, pain, burning and tingling. The most common spot in the body for this to occur is where the sciatic Nerve lies against your buttock muscles. Sitting for prolonged periods of time at your job puts you at higher risk of getting your sciatic nerve stuck.
If you have "tight hamstrings" or feel like your legs are always tight, even with stretching, you probably already have one of these issues. You need to have an assessment to have a proper diagnosis.
We treat adhesion at the sciatic nerve daily, as it is that common. Call us for a consultation.
