Forums Back Lateral Pelvic Tilt Re: Lateral Pelvic Tilt

Yes, both up and down stream of where you see an issue is important.
Lateral pelvic tilt can lead to neck and upper back pain because a tilt disrupts the muscle balance in our body and can cause posture problems and back pain.

In hip raised above neutral the quadratus lumborum and adductor muscles become tight.

Identifying the cause of the lateral pelvic tilt is key so that can be corrected.
Addressing posture and gait (walking pattern). Paying attention to spine position when sitting and standing helps the new positioning become your normal positioning.
Learning to distribute your weight evenly across the both sides of your body while keeping your pelvis in neutral position.

A few episodes to start addressing the lateral tilt.
