Intro to the pelvis

The pelvis is meant to move in all 3 dimensions. The 3 main pevic segments--left and right hemi-pelvis and sacrum--move together to create forward and backward movements (i.e. to reach down and touch your toes), and separately--but in coordination--to create more complex movements like walking, running, and dancing.


The pelvis influences the spine via the sacrum. Thus, pelvic position impacts spinal position and movement, and vice versa. They are intricately connected.


The pelvis influences the leg via the hip socket (acetabulum). Thus, pelvic position impacts the position and movement of the leg. They are intricately connected.


The pelvic floor is at the bottom of the pelvis (hence "floor"). Thus, pelvic position impacts the pelvic floor. They are intricately connected.


The pelvis influences the ribcage via the spine and numerous soft tissues that connect the two. Thus, pelvic position impacts the position and movement of the ribcage.


The respiratory diaphragm connects to the spine and ribcage. Thus, pelvic position impacts respiration via the spine, ribcage, and numerous soft tissue interconnections.


The Delta Rhythm Boys were onto something. Everything in the human body is truly interconnected.
