What muscles are weak in anterior pelvic tilt?
Anterior pelvic tilt is caused by the shortening of the hip flexors, and the lengthening of the hip extensors. This leads to an increased curvature of the lower spine, and of the upper back. The hip flexors are the muscles that attach the thigh bone to the pelvis and lower back.
What exercises are good for pelvic tilt?
Lie on your back on the floor with your knees bent. Flatten your back against the floor by tightening your abdominal muscles and bending your pelvis up slightly. Hold for up to 10 seconds. Repeat.
Do pelvic tilt exercises work?
Pelvic tilts are useful in helping to alleviate back pain. They reduce stiffness in the lower back and help to gently stretch the back muscles. They also strengthen your abdominal and buttock muscles.
