Walking, Walking

Take a look at our mealtimes. Both are the same movement in eating but sometimes we eat while standing at the counter, and other times we sit at the table. These eating activities are the same; the difference between them is in the spinal curves that are depending on the angles of our pelvis. When we sit to work, the strains in the lumbar area are created by the pelvis is leaning backward and the decrease in the inward curvature of the lumbar. From this passive pelvis position, we get unwelcome outcomes directly standing up and in walking; we increase the tense in the lumber muscles, we overstretch and compress the buttock muscles, and we fix the use of the hip joints. With the slouching body restricts the shoulder movements. In front of us, and it makes us hard to keep our balance when we try to stand up. This increase more tensions in the neck and back that we already have. We can stand in a good back
posture when we accustom to keep a good sitting position. We must align the spine on top of the pelvis efficiently, in way while standing, walking, or sitting. So why don’t we place the same healthy pelvic foundation in sitting as we do in standing? If we can always let the pelvis be prepared, it is possible for us to bring back our back to the neutral position. This makes us ready to stand up again while we let the muscles have some rests. So do not create extra backlash while standing up. Let us maintain the standing position with the minimum workload on the back along with the hip and knee joints. When standing, “sway-back” needs to be better avoided.

The Pelvic Tilt Prevention
Spread your arms to keep a straight line at the shoulders level. Twist your torso but your pelvis sits still. You may notoce your weight shifted on both sides of the pelvis.
Return your arms to a straight line. Touch the opposite knee with your forearm.
Have you noticed your equilibrium shifted down to your thighs? Rotate arms.
Bend your arms in slightly less than a 90 degree angle and cup your hands gently.
Swing arms front to back while you stomp your feet.
Create awareness that your pelvis can stay still despite the side to side weight shifts.
