Pelvis Correction 
aka Collapsed Pelvis Correction
Once you have stacked your upper back then and only then can you unload your low back through your core.  The upper abdominal stabilize the rib cage in neutral to unload the upper lumbar spine; the lower abdominal position the pelvis in a vertical position which unloads the lower lumbar spine.  Any strengthening from a collapsed pelvis will only reinforce stronger low back loading patterns. The good news is we have a self-correction technique that you can perform after your functional mobility program and before strengthening exercises.  This techniques relocates a mis-aligned pelvis.  Because most of us are right lumbar loaders this technique usually relocated a collapsed right pelvis back into its neutral position with the left pelvis anteriorly and the sacrum posteriorly.  




Medical Consideration: Do not perform this technique if you have recently fallen and have groin pain.  

Prescription:  This exercise is prescribed for this with Collapsed Right Pelvis's, a condition associated with prolonged right lumbar loading.  We suggest watching the video "What is A Collapsed Right Pelvis" to learn how one becomes a Right Lumber Loader.
 

Movement Pairing: The SymFit® Pelvis Correction self-correction techniques can safely mobilize relocate a pelvic bone that is out of alignment with the other pelvis bone and the sacrum. Perform level 1+2 of the Pelvic Curl and Connecting Pelvis to Rib Cage Series after performing this technique to wake up the core muscles that stabilize the lumbar spine in neutral.  Do not perform this technique without private instruction from a SymFit® certified Movement Educator or Physical Therapist.  This techniques is introduced during visit #2 of the SymFit® Healthy Fitness System.

Hip Correction 
The position of the pelvis dictates the loading through the hip.  When collapsed forward the hip has to rotate outward to get out of its way and this can cause a lateral and anterior pull at the hip joint. This sets us up for lateral loading of the hip and knee in standing and walking. Overtime the hip can be pulled out of its neutral position and a posterior mobilization can help restore neutral position before exercise.  Because most of us are right lumbar loaders this technique is shown on a right hip but can be done on a left hip if the prescription signs below are experienced in the left hip.  




Medical Consideration: Do not perform this technique if you have recently fallen and have groin pain.  

Prescription:  This exercise is prescribed when there is a constant tightness/pinch in the front of the hip and that hip is not able to internally rotated enough to inward spiral the hip when standing.  We suggest watching the video "What is A Collapsed Right Pelvis" to learn how one becomes a Lateral Loader.
 

Movement Pairing: The SymFit® Pelvis Correction self-correction techniques can safely mobilize relocate a pelvic bone that is out of alignment with the other pelvis bone and the sacrum. Perform level 1+2 of the Walking Series after performing this technique to wake up the core muscles that stabilize the pelvis and hip in neutral.  Do not perform this technique without private instruction from a SymFit® certified Movement Educator or Physical Therapist.  This techniques is introduced during visit #6 of the SymFit® Healthy Fitness System.

Knee Correction 

As discussed a collapsed upper back causes increased low back loading which consists of a collapsing of the pelvis forward.  A collapsed pelvis results in an externally rotated hip which results in lateral loading through the hip.  Lateral loading of the hip in standing, walking and sitting can cause a muscle imbalance around the knee that can result in a mis-alignment of the fibulae.  The good news is we have a self-correction technique that you can perform after your functional mobility program and before strengthening exercises.  This techniques relocates a mis-aligned fibular head.  Because most of us are right lumbar loaders this technique shown on a right knee but this technique may be needed on the left knee for right and left lumbar loaders due to the effect of right lumbar loading on the entire pelvis.  




Medical Consideration: Do not perform this technique if you have recently fallen and have groin pain.  

Prescription:  This technique is prescribed for this with lateral loading patterns that have pain on the outside of the lower leg when they inward spiral the hip.  We suggest watching the video "What is A Collapsed Right Pelvis" to learn how one becomes a lateral loader.
 

Movement Pairing: The SymFit® Pelvis Correction self-correction techniques can safely mobilize relocate a pelvic bone that is out of alignment with the other pelvis bone and the sacrum. Perform level 1 of the Lunge Series (standing bony rhthyms) followed by level 1 + 2 of the Walking Series after performing this technique to wake up the core muscles that stabilize the pelvis and hip in neutral.  Do not perform this technique without private instruction from a SymFit® certified Movement Educator or Physical Therapist.  This techniques is introduced during visit #6 of the SymFit® Healthy Fitness System.

Ankle Correction 
aka Collapsed Pelvis Correction
Once you have stacked your upper back then and only then can you unload your low back through your core.  The upper abdominal stabilize the rib cage in neutral to unload the upper lumbar spine; the lower abdominal position the pelvis in a vertical position which unloads the lower lumbar spine.  Any strengthening from a collapsed pelvis will only reinforce stronger low back loading patterns. The good news is we have a self-correction technique that you can perform after your functional mobility program and before strengthening exercises.  This techniques relocates a mis-aligned pelvis.  Because most of us are right lumbar loaders this technique usually relocated a collapsed right pelvis back into its neutral position with the left pelvis anteriorly and the sacrum posteriorly.  




Medical Consideration: Do not perform this technique if you have recently fallen and have groin pain.  

Prescription:  This exercise is prescribed for this with Collapsed Right Pelvis's, a condition associated with prolonged right lumbar loading.  We suggest watching the video "What is A Collapsed Right Pelvis" to learn how one becomes a Right Lumber Loader.
 

Movement Pairing: The SymFit® Pelvis Correction self-correction techniques can safely mobilize relocate a pelvic bone that is out of alignment with the other pelvis bone and the sacrum. Perform level 1+2 of the Pelvic Curl and Connecting Pelvis to Rib Cage Series after performing this technique to wake up the core muscles that stabilize the lumbar spine in neutral.  Do not perform this technique without private instruction from a SymFit® certified Movement Educator or Physical Therapist.  This techniques is introduced during visit #2 of the SymFit® Healthy Fitness System.

Lumbar Rotation Correction 
If you spend a majority of your day in collapsed posture you have likely developed an asymmetrical lumbar loading pattern.  A collapsed pelvis overloads L5/S1, a collapsed pelvis that is more collapsed on the .  The upper abdominal stabilize the rib cage in neutral to unload the upper lumbar spine; the lower abdominal position the pelvis in a vertical position which unloads the lower lumbar spine.  Any strengthening from a collapsed pelvis will only reinforce stronger low back loading patterns. The good news is we have a self-correction technique that you can perform after your functional mobility program and before strengthening exercises.  This techniques relocates a mis-aligned pelvis.  Because most of us are right lumbar loaders this technique usually relocated a collapsed right pelvis back into its neutral position with the left pelvis anteriorly and the sacrum posteriorly.

Most pain is a message from the brain that a something is injured or overloaded.  The most common cause of joint mis-alignement is faulty posture driving assymmetrical loading and muscle imbalance.  So, the foundation of the problem is posture which is fixable.  We hope these self-correction techniques help you remain physcially healthy and ensure that your fitness program meets your long-term injury prevention needs.  They are to be performed after your functional mobility program and before your strengthening exercises.   They should also be performed before recreational and sport activities that challenge the upper body to prevent injury.

Foot/Toe Mobilization
