HAPPY BELATED 💛 DAY Love yourself first = Striving to maintain your neutral pelvis throughout the day. - 🔷️Neutral Pelvis and the opportunity for Neutral Spine certainly exists and is essential to the health of…well, your entire you! So what is a ‘neutral pelvis' ?
Rael (2014) indicates that it happens when the alignment of the ASIS (Anterior Superior Iliac Spine) and the Pubic Bone in line with each other in the Coronal Plane ( pic 2 + plus with common misalighment pelvis examples, anterior and posterior tilts). - ☝️ In neutral positions our body is in the best possible position for shock absorption, alignment and optimal engagement. It’s essentially the position our bodies are designed to be in yet tend to deviate from due to lifestyle and genetic factors. - 🎯 The moment the body is unbalanced and out of alignment, certain muscles become overworked and others become weak, resulting in stress and inefficient movement. So striving to attain ideal neutral alignment and develop the musculature to support it. - 🔺 Find your neutral pelvis : Lying on your back try to imagine that your hip bones and pubic bone make a triangle. I place the heel of my hands on my hip bones and my fingers on my pubic bone. This triangle should lie flat/level, imagining a cup of tea sat on there that doesn’t spill. This is a basic of neutral pelvis ( for a more detailed set up, pic 3) -
