Sway back posture


Sway back posture is a common postural instability problem. The forward movement of the pelvis makes the person's body weight fall behind the hip joints and increases facet joint compression as shown by the downward arrow in the picture opposite.

The prolonged stretch on the front of the person's hip joint can also lead to hip joint instability and potential additional problems.

The sections below provide information on how to start correcting this postural dysfunction.
