Daryl’s FIT TIP of the Day:
One of the keys to maintaining proper spine alignment and postural support is to maintain proper pelvic girdle position. Being in a weak or over-exaggerated posterior or anterior pelvic tilt during certain exercises or certain biomechanical positions (i.e.,sitting) can result in dysfunctional structural integrity of the spine, which can result in injury or degenerative disorders. Muscle imbalances can also force displacement of the pelvic girdle. Tight quadriceps can cause an excessive anterior tilt, which will cause the vertebraes to be misaligned.
To help reduce spinal injuries, maintaining a posterior pelvic tilt will provide greater structural support during exercises that require strong postural control (deadlift, squat, overhead presses, etc.).
