Our hamstrings take the brunt of messes created by other parts of our bodies. Our hamstrings are considered ‘2-joint muscles’ which means that they cross both the hip and the knee. Because of this, our hamstrings have to be very adept at keeping the peace between our knees and hips. This is not an easy task! A common underlying issue with hamstring pulls and strains is lack of strength and flexibility of the hip rotators. With running, a misbehaving hip can be the main cause of a hamstring strain.
In today’s video, we cover the underlying causes, especially why it can take so long for a hamstring injury to go away. We also cover exercises that you can do to take care of hamstring issues on your own.
