Lower body cross syndrome is characterised by the weakness in abdominal
muscles and pelvic floor muscles along with the tightness of hip flexor muscles
and thoracolumbar extensors. Typically, this condition creates an imbalance
between the strength and flexibility of synergic muscles of lower limb.
Generally, the group muscles work with counter pressure of equal and
opposite forces exerted by them. When the forces become unequal it leads to
lower cross syndrome.
There are two types of lower body cross syndrome:
- Anterior pelvic cross syndrome: pelvis is tilted posteriorly because
weakened abdominal muscles
- Posterior pelvic cross syndrome: pelvic is tilted anteriorly because of
shortened or tight hip flexors
Lower body cross syndrome can be caused by:
- Poor sitting/standing posture
- Sedentary lifestyle
- Previous injury
- Low back pain (most common)
- Reduced range of motion at joint
Treatment of lower boy cross syndrome includes: stretching and strengthening
exercises of lower limb.
