What is a Pelvic Tilt?


Did you know that our pelvis directly affects the position of our spine?



Our pelvis connects directly to our spine, which results in it having a direct impact on how it is positioned.

There are two main positions of the pelvis that have a large impact on our spine:

  • Anterior Pelvic Tilt

    • Top of pelvis comes forward = arching of lower back

  • Posterior Pelvic Tilt

    • Top of pelvis goes backward = rounding of lower back

Both of these tilts remove our spine from its neutral position, which alters our muscles, joints, bone, etc. Unfortunately, the majority of people do not have a pelvic position that results in a neutral position. It’s important to note the each individual has a unique pelvic position that results in a neutral spine. There is no one size fits all solution, however, there is an easy way to find your unique pelvic position.


Our next post will show you how to find you ideal and unique pelvic position that will help you obtain a neutral spine!
