Activity: Pelvic asymmetry self correction: for anterior rotation

Pai-1

Summary:

A self corrective exercise specifically for an anteriorly rotated inominate

Description:

    Pelvic asymmetries are relatively common, and may either be structural (unchanging) or as a result of muscle imbalance (tight, dominant muscles pulling the spine, hip and pelvis). The amount of movement at the sacroiliac (SI) joint is small, and in some people non-existent. This exercise can be used to help pull one side of the pelvis out of anterior rotation.
  • laying on the floor, lift the affected-side leg up, grasping just behind the knee with both hands
  • while applying an upwards resistance with the hands, try to push the thigh down back toawrds the floor. (hold firm resistance for 5-6 sec)
  • now relax the leg and use the hands to pull the thigh up towards the chest. (hold this stretch for 20-30 sec)
  • repeat as instructed
