Exercises to Correct Lateral Pelvic Tilt?



I have a left-sided pelvic tilt (ie. right side higher than left) and wondered what exercises I should do to correct it? It's quite seriously affecting my abduction and hip rotation which is a problem because I do martial arts!

Any advice/links to programmes?



MY first suggestion is to see a chiropractor. I say this because...

  1. It could be your erector spinae muscles or even misaligned vertebrae.

  2. It could be an adhesive gluteus medius on the right side and a weak one on the left (which COULD be caused by similarly adhesive and weak QL's on the right and left respectively)

I have some exercises but I think it is best that you report back with some more information so we can help you treat the problem correctly. Good luck!
