Low Back Pain ? May need to correct that anterior pelvic tilt!


If you feel this pinchey type pain or dull ache always while standing or walking but it improves with sitting.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ You probably need to correct an anterior pelvic tilt (APT). ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣

Because odds are pretty high you’re throwing your spine into excessive extension at the lower segments. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣

Here’s what to do and how to check:⁣⁣ ⁣⁣

✔️One hand in front on your abdomen, one hand on the small of your back. Feel for the excessive extension (forward curve)⁣⁣ ⁣

✔️See if you can tighten your abdominals because they’re probably not activated at all. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ (Some of you wont be able to activate them in a standing position. I’ll make a video on where to start if you can’t in a standing position.)⁣⁣ ⁣⁣

✔️Watch and feel for what’s happening at the pelvis (do this in front of a mirror so you can see). You want to see the spine go to a neutral position. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣

✔️Maintain a slight bit of tension to keep the pelvis position you’ve just gotten. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣

✔️Watch out for the rib cage flaring upwards because if it does you are going to have a net zero effect of correcting the pelvis. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣

Any questions, just hit me up. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Comment below or DM⁣⁣ ⁣⁣
