Pelvic Misalignment is also known as pelvic tilt. It is pain in the lowest part of your abdomen and pelvis. It occurs when the pelvic bone leans or is tilted to one side causing the spine to be uneven.
This usually goes un-noticed for a long period of time and includes symptoms such as:
- General Lower Back Ache
- Increasing Pain during and after Walking
- Pain after Standing on a Single Place for a Long Time
- Aching Pain Whilst Lying Down
- Pain Referring into the Hips and Buttocks
When precautionary measures are not taken the case can worsen and result in:
- Pain down the Thigh towards the Knee
- Pain in and around the Groin
- Inability to Bear Weight or Walk
- Sleepless Nights Due to Pain
What Causes Pelvis Misalignment?
Generally causes of pelvis misalignment include:
- Twisting movement and injuries like moving a heavy box onto a shelf.
- Standing on even surfaces which make you bear weight on one leg like standing on a ladder with feet on different levels.
The pelvis misalignment causes inflammation to the Sacro-iliac joint, (like spraining your ankle), this causes irritation to the local nerves in the area, resulting in local ache or travelling pain.
How Think Chiropractic Can Help?
- If you cannot get medical assistance, you may be able to find temporary relief by sitting and resting.
- At Think Chiropractic we examine pelvis alignment using postural analysis, x-rays and static palpitation to diagnose and adjustment of the pelvis joint back to its normal position and function
If Left Untreated?
- Will gradually get worse and become more painful.
- The pain may start travelling down the leg and cause pins & needles or numbness.
- May start effecting your hobbies and daily activities.
- Will cause more stress on the lumbar discs causing wear and tear (osteoarthritis) eventually causing a disc ‘blow out’ or disc protrusion, prolapsed or bludge.
- The longer the condition is left untreated, the harder it is to fix. This often results in more visits and a higher final treatment cost
- Eventually leading to permanent damage, which may then result in spinal surgery
