TILTED PELVIS
« on: October 23, 2008, 03:06:40 PM »

Can you explain to me what you mean by a tilted pelvis. I have always been under the impression that the pelvis should be tiled forward and downward

When I speak about tilted I refer to down on one side and up on the other. (when you are looking at the body from in front straight on.) You can also get a rotated pelvis whereby it is forward one side and back the other and you can also get a situation where both upper ridges or the illium are tilted fwd  or backward when looking from the side. So there are 6 incorrect positions the pelvis can be in.

Thank you for your reply which was what I thought you meant. My question was a confirmation of the correct position of the pelvis in the normal position since the pelvis is in the curved position at the L4-5 area. My concern stemed from people in a hunched positon with the head in front of the body causing back problems.
