Hey There,I have had a lot of upper back and neck pain on my right side for several months now. I kept looking for problems upstream and wasn’t having any luck; someone mentioned pelvic tilt to me. I have about a 2″ elevated pelvic tilt on the right side and am now wondering if my problems stem from this. Can anyone speak to WHY a lateral pelvic tilt would lead to neck and upper back pain? Also, things I can do to fix it. There are lots of articles out there about anterior and posterior but not necessarily lateral.Anything helps

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.
