In brief: Sciatic nerve-tibial

Lumbar spine stenosis (narrowing) usually affects all structures below the site of spinal cord constriction.
The hamstrings are innervated by a branch (ant. Tibial) of the sciatic nerve (l4, l5, s1, s2, (racepinephrine) s3 origin) the word ham originally referred to the fat and muscle behind the knee . String refers to tendons. The 3 muscles of the posterior thigh: semitendinosus, semimembranosus, biceps femoris.
