Anterior Pelvic Tilt and its Corrective Treatment

Anterior Pelvic Tilt and its Corrective Treatment


The anterior pelvic tilt occurs when your pelvis slips to a position that is more forward than it should be. Hip flexion and lumbar extension are caused by anterior pelvic tilt.  Also, there is Lower back discomfort. Because of a shift in your neutral stance.

Your lumbar curvature becomes overly enlarged as a result of anterior pelvic tilt. And it affects multiple muscle groups, including the quadriceps, which assist extend the knee, the iliopsoas (hip flexors), and the adductors (inner thigh muscles), all of which become tight.  And muscular groups such as the gluteal and hamstring become inactive or overstretched, which may be misread as tight muscles but are merely overstretching to their maximum length. As a result, extending the hamstring muscle might aggravate the problem.

There may be an effect like :

  • Muscle tension in the pelvic and thigh regions,
  • The Gluteus maximus and abdominal muscles are weak,
  • Poor posture, with the lower spine bending in and the stomach projecting.

Physiotherapy treatment of Anterior pelvic tilt:

Strengthening the hamstring and gluteal muscles instead of stretching can be useful.

In addition, there are inactivation or weakening in core (abs) muscles as a result of increasing lumbar lordotic curvature. So core strengthening is really essential, but core strengthening activities should perform with caution since core strengthening exercises might over-activate already tight hip flexor muscles.

In addition, our physiotherapist will perform muscle-releasing procedures to aid in healing.
