Your pelvis position can have a role in your pain relief.
Why this matters:
During a physical exam, we’ll be looking at your spine and pelvis. The pelvis is the area between your hip bones, and it contains your bladder and lower abs. It serves as an attachment point for many muscles. Due to behaviors, anatomical differences, and just general changes, there can be some movement (or lack thereof) in this area. The general position of the pelvis can either be level (flat), rotated forward (anterior) and rotated backward (posterior). In some cases, spending too much time in any pelvic position can lead to pain and irritation.
Action steps:This video can help explain and visualize for you the anatomy of an anterior pelvic tilt. The good news is being aware of this position already allows you to make some positive adjustments.
