Pelvic Balancing Exercise

 

Indications

This is an exercise your client can do at home to help keep their pelvis in alignment.

Cautions

Keep your low back flat to the table or floor when doing this.

Technique

Bring your knees up, then move your knees laterally and place your heels together so that your heels are on the table or floor as close to your buttocks as possible.

Breathe deeply and slowly and allow your adductor muscles to relax so that your knees go as close to the floor as possible. Hold this for 30 to 60 seconds. Move your feet about 6 inches down and repeat. You may feel a different part of your adductors stretching this time.

Continue this stretch moving your feet six inches down each time. This can be done twice a day.
