Lower Crossed Syndrome – What is it?
Also known as pelvic crossed syndrome, or distal crossed syndrome. The lower crossed syndrome is the result of muscle strength imbalances in the lower segment of the body.
These imbalances can occur when muscles are constantly shortened or lengthened in relation to each other. Along with this there is usually underactivity and weakness of the deep abdominal muscles, and the hamstrings are frequently found to be tight in this syndrome as well. This imbalance results in an anterior tilt of the pelvis.
