Rotated/Twisted pelvis
« on: February 03, 2011, 01:20:33 AM »
Hi Steve

I know I have a rotated/twisted pelvis, as when I ride my motorcycle my left knee always touches and rests upon the fairing, whereas my right knee is cm's away.  I have tried adjusting my riding position but when I do I feel crooked, so this is the basis on believing that my left leg is longer as the result of my pelvis issue.  I have also been told this by a chiropractor about 12 months ago.

I just have a couple of questions that relate - based on the above, which leg (hamstrings etc) are tight/turned off, my left or right? When I exercise, should I then do more of that particular exercise on the tight/turned off leg?

Regards

Jeff

Hi jeff, any exercise tends to make tight muscles worse so if they are causing a problem the problem gets worse. You need to restore correct length and function to a muscle before you strengthen it and that is what my self treatment program shows you what to do.

Hope that helps,
Steve

Thanks Steve, I understand.  I am still doing the SLM Yoga, and your other exercises and each time is better than the last.  Can you tell me which leg is the probable cause of my rotated pelvis?

Regards

Jeff

Normally it is the leg on the side the pelvis is forward.
