bluebillie Posted May 28, 2008 Report Share Posted May 28, 2008 Hello all, I'm not sure if this is the appropriate forum, so if this needs to be moved to the health and nutrition, by all means move away! I have a long list of Dr.'s in my family, both M.D. and D.O., and when my D.O. mother was doing rotations in Ostheopathic manipulation, she had the pleasure of working with a very gifted manipulation specialist. Needless to say, my 15th year was a very relaxed and comfortable one! At the time, my osteopath noticed that I have a somewhat rare pelvic placement. Rather than sitting on top of my legs, or even in front, my pelvis sits behind my legs. To give a better picture, if you looked at me from the side, my legs come out at a curve from the bottom of my pelvis. It's certainly not as exaggerated as a "c" curve, but it's noticeable. For my size (not-quite-5'1"), I have a very wide (35") and flat pelvis. Because I dance, and want to attain a very "straight" look, I feel that I may be over-arching my lower back and jutting my torso forward to compensate for my "strange" position (in my eyes, anyway!). As an adult, I wonder if I might do any exercises or work towards pulling up on my legs more to reduce this look, and just to get a better balance point in general. In short, how to get out of "sitting in" my squirrelly pelvis and legs? Quote Link to comment
