Dealing with Pelvic Torsion Successfully


When someone is suffering from pelvic torsion, they might find that their left or right ASIS (anterior superior iliac spine) is slightly higher than the other. Other problems may include an anterior pelvic tilt. A person should focus on correcting their habitual posture. They should also do more sports and leisure activities to keep active.

The posture

There are many people who have postural problems but still manage quite well. However, hip flexor stretching and heat treatment will help ease any tightness. Try not to hold stretches for too long or the muscle can become fatigued. There are a lot of people who do not have a perfect posture and this can lead to many problems. Learning techniques like the Alexander Technique will help with posture correction. When the posture is corrected, it may help with easing any pain.

There are some people who believe that if someone has one shorter leg than the other, it may cause pelvic torsion. Chronic pelvis pain may be a symptom of a different illness, or it might be a condition in itself. Women, who are pregnant often suffer with pelvis pain, which is often relieved once they give birth. Sitting posture is vital and we recommend that a pelvic retraining chair is used which helps to maintain good pelvic and back alignment when sitting. There are only a few on the market, we recommend this chair for pelvic and back pain. We also recommend these 5 unbelievably easy exercises to help with correction of your pelvic torsion

Causes of pain

It is often hard to find the cause of pelvis pain. If the cause is found, then treatment will revolve around it. However, if there is no cause found, then treatment focuses on managing the pain. A Physiotherapist or Osteopath can help by massaging the spine and helping with spinal alignment. If someone is suffering from pain, it could be that their spine is misaligned. Spinal alignment will help to relieve such pain.

Solutions for pelvic torsion

Physiotherapy may concentrate on exercises that a person can practise to relieve the pain. There are a few things to consider when going for therapy. If you are interested in treating the pain, but not the underlying condition, then it might be worth just sticking with pain-killing medication but this is not advisable. Osteopaths can help with pain, but they also help the underlying condition, which is a better long-term solution. They help the person holistically on many different levels, viewing the person spiritually, physically, and emotionally. In addition, they may suggest lifestyle and exercise changes.

The majority of us are familiar with pelvis pain. Everyone at some point has probably experienced some kind of pelvis pain but, for some people, it can cause extreme pain and sensitivity for years.

People suffering from pelvis pain for a long time may also suffer from depression. They can often feel that a resolution is hopeless and their doctor may not take them seriously. Sometimes doctors have no answers, which can make a person feel worse. A person suffering from this type of pain may have trouble sleeping, which in turn adds to the intensity of the problem. Osteopaths and Physiotherapists may offer hope to a sufferer who suffers from such a painful condition.
We often find retraining the way you are sitting can help ease symptoms and a chair for pelvic and back pain we recommend is the back app chair. Which helps retrain muscles when sitting.

It is often easier to cope with pain when a person understands what is happening to them and how it can be dealt with. Medical interventions can help to dramatically reduce pain. The best way forward is to learn more about the different types of treatment and manage pain more successfully.
