The Pelvic Cross Syndrome (also known as lower cross syndrome) is defined as an abnormal adapted posture of the lower back, which results from muscle strength imbalances. This is frequently associated with the combination of prolonged sitting and poor posture.

 

In this condition, the following may be perceived:

 

  •   Increased curve (lordosis) of the lower back

  •   Forward tilt of the pelvis

  •   Tight hip flexor muscles (Iliopsoas)

  •   Weak abdominals and bottom muscles (Gluteals)

  •   Tight hamstrings (posterior thigh muscle)
