What is excessive anterior pelvic tilt, and why can it result in back pain? Neuromuscular therapist Holistic Sam explains how the position of your pelvis can change the position of (and crowd) your lumbar spine. Though a little anterior pelvic tilt is normal, tight or weak lower back, psoas, quadriceps, and gluteus maximus muscles can all contribute to an unbalanced pelvis. Learn how flat feet and stress responses also can exacerbate the problem, and hear how to combat the resulting pain.
