What is an Anterior Pelvic Tilt? How Can We Fix It?
When you look at posture you are really looking at the balance muscles around a joint. If one muscle is pulling too hard, then you see changes in your alignment. Some are more obvious than others. Deviations in the pelvis can impact gait, strength, and overall quality of life.
An anterior pelvic tilt, also known as lower crossed syndrome, is most common for those that have occupations that require them to sit at a desk.
