Pelvic tilt is the positioning of the pelvis in relation to the body.𝗜𝗻 𝗮 𝗹𝗼𝘁 𝗼𝗳 𝗽𝗲𝗹𝘃𝗶𝗰 𝘁𝗶𝗹𝘁 𝗶𝘀𝘀𝘂𝗲𝘀, 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗵𝗶𝗽 𝗳𝗹𝗲𝘅𝗼𝗿𝘀 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗲𝘅𝘁𝗲𝗻𝘀𝗼𝗿𝘀 𝗮𝗿𝗲 𝗵𝗲𝗮𝘃𝗶𝗹𝘆 𝗶𝗻𝗳𝗹𝘂𝗲𝗻𝗰𝗲𝗱.Since these muscles attach to the pelvis and lower back you can expect other pelvic region muscles to tense up. These muscles affect the lower back region and contribute to either good or poor posture. 𝗖𝗼𝗿𝗿𝗲𝗰𝘁𝗶𝘃𝗲 𝗲𝘅𝗲𝗿𝗰𝗶𝘀𝗲 𝗰𝗮𝗻 𝗵𝗲𝗹𝗽 𝗶𝗺𝗽𝗿𝗼𝘃𝗲 𝗽𝗲𝗿𝗳𝗼𝗿𝗺𝗮𝗻𝗰𝗲, 𝗿𝗲𝘀𝘁𝗼𝗿𝗲 𝗽𝗲𝗿𝗳𝗼𝗿𝗺𝗮𝗻𝗰𝗲, 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗿𝗲𝗱𝘂𝗰𝗲 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗿𝗶𝘀𝗸 𝗼𝗳 𝗶𝗻𝗷𝘂𝗿𝘆.

The three most common types of pelvic tilt issues are anterior, posterior, and lateral pelvic tilts.

This is when the front of the pelvis rotates forward and the back of the pelvis rotates up.
Excessive sitting causes hip flexors to tighten, which causes a change in the position of the pelvis. If the hip flexors take over spinal stability you compromise pelvic alignment.

Issues for this version are the opposite of anterior pelvic tilt issues. This is where the front of the pelvis tilts up and back, while the bottom of the pelvis rotates under the body. Tight hamstrings are one of the biggest contributors to posterior pelvic tilt issues.

Each pelvic tilt is unique. A lateral pelvic tilt is when the pelvis shifts side to side, so much that one hip is higher than the other. This leads to unilateral muscle imbalances throughout the body.
The erector spine muscle group often affects this tilt and should always be addressed in this situation. To allow our lumbar spine to be in a neutral position, the pelvis should sit in line with our shoulders. One side should never be higher than the other.
