Neutral Pelvis

    By Kelly Dean

    The term neutral pelvis refer the optimal alignment of the pelvic bones in upright postures like sitting, standing, and walking. The pelvis is the bony structure that all of your core and pelvic floor muscles connects to and the where most of your hip, leg and lumbar muscles connect as well. Neutral means the position where the line between your pubic bone (in the front) and your tailbone (in the back) is parallel with the floor. This can mean sitting on your sit bones not your tailbone and standing without excessive arching or rounding of your low back. Neutral pelvis can be someone "elusive" when we are first building awareness, but we have some practical strategies to help you create opportunities for neutral pelvis throughout your day.
