Chronic Back Pain and Leg Warmers

I’ve had chronic lower back pain for nearly a decade. Or, I should say: I used to have chronic lower back pain. What happened? Well, I’ve known for a while that it was caused by the fact that I have tight hamstrings. Like, tight enough to bounce a quarter off of. Doing stretches helped, but my lower back still hurt.

Then one day I wondered if they were tight because they’re always cold. So I tried wearing leg warmers under my pants. Amazingly, the pain went away. Sure, it feels a little silly but it’s definitely worth it. I can even touch my palms to the floor now when I stretch to touch my toes. So if you’ve got lower back pain and tight hamstrings, give it a shot.
