Does Perfect Posture Make the Perfect Pelvis?

What is the perfect pelvic bone structure? We are born with the pelvic shape that genetically we were given, and growing, and running, and being pregnant has a small effect on that shape, but doesn't fundamentally change the shape too much. The shape then gives rise to how the muscles of the pelvis are inserted into their grounding points, and this in term may determine whether certain positions or exercises or the forces of living will impact and produce pains in these muscles, particularly those that form the giant sling known as the pelvic floor.  that we have. But the aches and pains women often c/o in their lower pelvis may have origins far beyond the pelvic floor. These pains can actually originate as abdominal, leg, foot, or back pains. Remember today when doing your shavasana that your back supports the abdomen, and the abdomen supports your back and the muscular insertions are in the pelvis as well. angle of our hip joint supports the pelvis as well, so when your feet are out of joint you are displacing those joints as well. For women with low back pain: 70% is simply straining the muscles of the lower lumbar spine area, only 4% is due to herniated disks and 3% was related to spinal stenosis. And pains in the feet can even radiate upwards to produce pain in the pelvis. So when you are putting on those party pumps, and you see a bit of a bump on your Achilles tendon, you know that your foot may be a bit out of alignment when you walk leading to stretches of those nerves that feed into the nerves of your pelvis. The bumps themselves are called Haglund's Deformity. And when you have pains that your gyno doesn't really think are related to your uterus or it's surrounding structure, get your gyno to think about the legs and feet too!
