Inactivity and prolonged sitting can lead to weak, deconditioned muscles that fail to hold your pelvis in the proper angle. Without adequate exercise and physical activity, the leg muscles, gluteal muscles, abdominals and erector spinae muscles become inactive. This allows the pelvis to "fall" forwards or backwards as it rests on your hip joints, resulting in anterior pelvic tilt or posterior pelvic tilt. This plants the seed for hip pain and lower back pain, as the biomechanics of the hip joints and vertebral joints are altered causing abnormal weight distribution on the joint surfaces. This leads to accelerated wear and tear-- osteoarthritis in the hips, and degenerative joint disease in the lumbar spine with increased susceptibility to disc herniations and spinal stenosis. If you have anterior or posterior pelvic tilt, these exercises and stretches can correct them and guard you against hip and spine degeneration.
