There are over seventy (70) muscles that connect to the pelvis. If tightness occurs in one or two of these muscles (from sitting or exercising) the other muscles of the pelvis will be affected due to close proximity. Tightness of a muscle can alter the normal mechanics of the pelvic joints, especially when walking, running, and exercising.
Doctor's Treatment Plan
The Doctors will diagnose the primary muscle(s) causing the pelvic imbalance, and treat all the muscles and joints that are affected. Stretching tight and short muscles and strengthening the weak muscles are vital to proper pelvic alignment. The Doctors will also focus on adjusting any joints of the pelvis and low back that are out of position. Home stretches and exercises will be given to stabilize the pelvis.
Note: It should always be considered that not all injuries are spinal related, and therefore not all injuries can be fully corrected with the benefit of chiropractic medicine. Further, the injury profiles and recommendations for treatment should in no way be used as a substitute for the care of a physician.
