Two-thirds of Germans have a crooked pelvis – when you have to see a doctor

if you look closely, you can detect a pelvic obliquity with the naked eye. Then skin wrinkles and dimples, not to sit at the back at the same height or are of different depth. The shoulder drops to one side a little more. Or the kneecaps are not quite parallel.

Such abnormalities can sting but only with stronger pelvic tilt protruding to prepare the Affected then often complaints. Of the country's 50 million estimated people with crooked hips, this applies to about a third. Most of the others remember anything, because the inclined position is only minimally.

complaints are not often brought into connection with the pool. Pain in the lumbar spine, in the shoulders, neck, knee, or ankle joints may eventually have other causes. And in the case of head and jaw pain, orthopedic surgeons do not think in part, again immediately to the pool as the origin of the problems.

  • 60% have pelvic tilt: your mirror tells you whether you are affected
  • as a last resort in osteoarthritis: what time is really just the artificial hip joint
  • helps pain reasons for your back and what you now however
the cause to do are different long legs

actually, the misalignment of the pelvis the result of some other asymmetry. Because the most common cause of a pelvic tilt, long legs are different. The difference is one centimeter or more, tilts each step the pelvis from its normal Position.

In the long run this leads to muscular imbalances, movement limitations and postural. It often comes as a result of the imbalance in the pelvis, even to a lateral curvature of the spine (scoliosis). If then again and again back or joint pain, the most Concerned only when the orthopedic surgeon of your leg length difference.

orthopedist diagnosed the cause, extent and result of damage to the pelvic tilt stand

The pelvic tilt, the experienced orthopedic surgeon can diagnose with a glance, also for the leg length difference or scoliosis, he needs no devices. More complex is the assessment of consequential damage caused by years of imbalance. This can range from pain and tension – in women more often in the neck area, in men more vertebrae of the lumbar – to osteoarthritis in the hip joint or in the knee.

Accordingly, the physician in therapeutic measures is recommended.

So you are back in the pool in the case of unequal legs is even.

The physician, the "real difference in leg length is different" (one leg is actually grown shorter and shorter) from the "functional" (such as due to shortened muscles or arthritis in the knee and ankle).

  • the difference Is not more than a centimeter, are often custom-made Shoe inserts helpful.
  • If there is a difference of up to three centimeters have proven increased Shoe soles.
  • Alternatively, or in the case of a larger difference is only a corrective Operation remains.

In the case of a functional leg length difference have shifted in about the same long legs, only slightly, for example by shortened muscle groups in the thigh or hip area. Then gymnastics or the elimination of the blockages through osteopathy to bring the sick to the length compensation and move the pelvis back straight.

Especially important is the strengthening of the right muscles is because this will be charged in case of a pelvic obliquity is very one-sided. Regular Aerobics can get the newly built-up muscles in the long term. Two to three times per week Affected should exercise. It is important that the back and the abdominal muscles, because they hold the pelvic ring from both sides.

regular stretching exercises can provide each Patient permanently the pelvic obliquity increased. The Stretching should be done daily. /iStockphoto/Shidlovski

3 Exercises that directly target the hip muscles:
  • hip flexor stretch: stand On one leg, the other in the bent knee and the foot with the Hand grip. The pool slide is to the front until the stretch stimulus is felt and ten to 15 seconds. After that, the Exercise with the other leg to perform.
  • Internal hip flexor muscle stretch: From the knee-stand, raise a leg so that the thigh and lower leg 90 degrees, to form angle. Then – with a straight back, with the body slightly forward tilt up to a noticeable elongation, and this should be kept short. Then the other leg up.
  • inner thigh stretch: With slightly bent knees hip width apart, then with one foot a large step to the side and press. With the bent leg as deep as you can go, and the stretch in the inner thigh of the stretched leg will feel. Stretch for ten to 20 seconds, hold switch, then page.
