Hamstring stretching Towel Hamstring Stretch Lie on the back, supporting the thigh with the hand or with a towel wrapped around it.. Slowly straighten the knee until a stretch is felt in the back of the thigh, trying to get the bottom of the foot to face the ceiling, one leg at a time. Hold the position initially for 10 seconds, and gradually work up to 20 to 30 seconds. Seated Hamstring Stretch While sitting at the edge of a chair, straighten one leg in front of the body with the heel on the floor. Then, sit up straight and try pushing the navel towards the thigh without leaning the trunk of the body forwards. Hold this stretch for 30 seconds Repeat 3 times for each leg.

Hello there,,,,,well paraspinal muscle spasm is a protective phenomenon whr muscles become tougt so as to prevent furthur damage to the spine.....Now since u have mentioned that pain has got into your buttocks n legs...so it could be sciatic pain ( which infact is a symptom) however it should be confirmed by an orthopaedician/musculoskeletal physio. If that is the case then you would need Physiotherapy help (an x ray /MRI is needed to see if there is any problem with the allignment of your lumbar Disc).
Next Steps
Physio modalities like SWD,Lumbar Traction,TENS along with lower back strengthning exercises would be of great help,,,however if your sciatic pain is bcos of Piriformis muscle problem(muscle in buttock) then modalities are of not much help....so origin of your sciatic pain should be found out,
Health Tips
Avoid lifting weights and bending... calcium & Vit B12 supplementation if required can be started. Regards & take care.
