As a chiropractor I'd like to see pelvic tilts included in everyone's daily stretching routine.
Why you ask?
Because just about everyone I have ever seen has some degree of physical stress in the form of low back tightness as a result of poor posture, prolonged sitting, inactivity and weak abdominal muscles.
Technically speaking, you may hear a doctor announce that you have an 'anterior pelvic tilt'. Rest assured that this is not a disease of any kind, but rather a structural weakness that can be corrected through proper stretching and strengthening that we will teach you here.
If you look to the right, you can see what it looks like pictorially:

This may be an okay posture if you are 9 months pregnant, but if not, you better try this exercise!
Pelvic tilts are a good place to start when you are experiencing extreme low back pain or radiation, especially if you are finding that your range of motion is limited.
But if you are moving relatively well, I like to take it one step further. Instead of simply working at the level of the pelvis, I like to get people doing whole spine flexing exercises, because as you can see from the first diagram above, it becomes a whole spine challenge and effect.
To do a spinal flex exercise, do the following:
Remember: A flexible spine is a healthy spine. And a healthy spine is a young body. So for a real live fountain of youth flexibility exercise, add pelvic tilts to your daily wellness lifestyle.
