Low Back Pain – Anterior Pelvic Tilt or Anterior Pelvic SHIFT?

In this video I discuss the implications of anterior pelvic shifting opposed to anterior pelvic tilting. Elaborating further on the common problems found from people who have tight hip flexors and subsequently have low back pain.

The path towards finding out what efficient movement is for a human being has been one of great difficulty considering all the variables that are thrown my way when I experiment in the lab. I have found that much of what has been written in textbooks regarding biomechanics definitely have validity, but only within a very limited context. So much of the information found in books claiming to address muscular imbalance have seemingly failed at some of the most basic principles of kinesiology. In the video above I break down what an anterior pelvic tilt actually looks like and how it applies in reality. Although it’s a bit different than the explanation of what I’ve seen others use to describe lumbo-pelvic hip imbalances, it seems to pin down what is actually going on in the body when deficiency is present in that region. I find that most theory out there is next to useless and hopefully people will be able to find use from videos like this and ones I will be posting soon similar.

    This looks very good. I found you thru a friend and I’ve been looking for a postural assessment training/study and myofacial release workout. I think I’ve found the right place. Thanks for all your hard work and dedication.

    Thanks for the information. I’ve spent a lot of time pondering this so it is great to get a better understanding for my practice. Somewhat related to this topic: I have recently been seeing an “intentional lordosis” standing posture in many young women. I’ve concluded it could possibly be the pressure to appear with a larger backside because, once put to a functional test, the posture corrects itself. I wonder if anyone else has observed this.

    Excellent info! So far everything I’ve read and watched from you matches the pieces I’ve been slowly gathering from various sources. You’ve done an amazing job of getting it all captured in one place. I look forward to learning more from you. Just be patient with us as we catch up to you 😉 dealing with hips shifted forward is huge for new moms which is the populating I deal with.
