Tight hamstrings are a chronic issue for many runners and lifters.

  • What creates the sensation of a “tight hamstring” when you can actually touch your toes?
  • Are the hamstrings really tight or do they just feel tight?
  • Did you have a “pop” occur in the hamstring region?
  • Did it bruise?
  • Does your back hurt?

In this podcast, I asked my serial co-host (Dr. Cody Dimak DC) to have a discussion about all of the common questions/ considerations patients may have when they’re experiencing symptoms into the hamstring region. Dr. Dimak shares a story about a powerlifter with tightness in the hamstrings. We both cover some stories about runners with hamstring “tightness.”

Enjoy and I hope this assists all the clinicians in communicating with their patients about what their treatment plan is attempting to do mechanically.

In this podcast we will cover the following topics:

  • Hamstring “tightness” sensations vs hamstring tears
  • Clues to see if you may have a hamstring tear
  • Simple ways to recovery from hamstring tightness
  • Warm ups for runners
  • Strength for runners
  • Low back considerations in hamstring tightness
