Achy Leg Pain Relief
In this quick video, Dr. Rowe (St. Joseph, MI chiropractor) shows how to get achy leg pain relief with a stretch that can be done at work, the desk, or at home. It's especially good to use after sitting for a long time. Give it a try!
HOW TO RELIEVE ACHY LEGS AND HAMSTRINGS. ⠀
Here’s a really good TWO-PART seated hamstring stretch that’s going to help relieve tight and achy legs and calves. It’s great to do after being stuck sitting for a long time… think at the office, a long road trip, or even after crashing on the couch.⠀
The hamstrings are a group of three muscles located at the back of your upper thighs. They aid in performing knee flexion and hip extension. Sitting for a long time keeps the hamstrings in a shortened position, causing tightness. When the hamstrings become tight, they can pull on the pelvis, causing the low back to arch slightly, which may lead to lower back pain. ⠀
These hamstring stretches can easily be done while sitting, and many times throughout the day. Give them a try and get those hammies feeling loose and less achy!
