The anterior pelvic tilt is the arching of the lumbar beyond the normal. Usually, in the anterior pelvic tilt symptoms, you will notice a very exaggerated backbone curve. The general bend is around 5-degrees for men and about 10-degrees for women but is exaggerated far beyond these numbers when you have an anterior pelvic tilt.

The anterior pelvic tilt is very common in the working class. There are, of course, reasons for it. We will list out all the reasons which cause the anterior pelvic tilt symptoms and back pain. Avoiding these is necessary to stay away from a pelvic tilt, in case you get it there is also a way to fix it.


Sedentary Life

Sitting on the chair for long hours is one of the most common reasons why you get an anterior pelvic tilt back pain. Sitting puts a lot of pressure on the lumbar and the posture creates a stretch in the hamstrings.

This stretch in the hamstrings combined with pressure on the glutes for elongated hours often results in body adapting to it and you landing with an anterior pelvic tilt.

Lack of Physical Activity

Lack of physical activity – again combined by long hours of sitting – result in an anterior pelvic tilt. The only additive of lack of physical activity is that is paces up the process for it and increases the severity.

When you move around, even if you spend long hours on a chair, a little bit of movement regulates the muscles of your hamstrings and hip flexors. This reduces the severity of the tilt and even reduces the chances of you getting the tilt altogether. So even walking is a good anterior pelvic tilt exercise, that you can do to fix it.

Incorrect Posture

Standing up and sitting down in incorrect postures builds up over time and eventually permanently ruins your posture. Sitting down on a chair, curled up, is one of the reasons why you can developĀ posterior or anterior pelvic tilt symptoms.

Sometimes, even when you are following the wrong workout posture, it may lead to anterior pelvic tilt. Lifting heavy weights on bicep curls will lead to you leaning back a bit too much and can cause anterior pelvic tilt.


Sometimes, there is nothing you did was wrong but it was in your genes to develop an exaggerated pelvic tilt. A slight pelvic tilt is easy to fix in these cases, but if the pelvic tilt becomes severe, then you need start working on correcting it right away.

With increased severity of the pelvic tilt, you will soon experience back pain and injuries. In certain conditions, you might not be able to completely fix the pelvic tilt but in most of the conditions, a counteractive workout can do the trick.


Excessive Belly Weight

Excessive belly weight can make you lean back to balance your weight evenly on your feet. This can result in you going through tilted pelvic treatments.

Pregnancy too can be a reason for developing anterior pelvic tilt back pain. Over exaggerated beer belly too can be a reason for developing anterior pelvic tilt symptoms.
