Pelvic Tilt (Strength)

Woman lying on her back with her knees bent. An arrow shows the inclination of the pelvis to give flexibility to the spine.

  1. Lie on your back on the floor, with your knees bent and feet flat on the floor.

  2. Tighten your stomach and buttocks, and press your lower back toward the floor. This should be a small, subtle movement. This should not increase your pain.

  3. Hold for 5 to 15 seconds. Relax.

  4. Repeat 2 to 5 times, or as instructed.
