I am having anterior tilt issue. In my lower back. Having difficulty in standing after sitting and difficulty while walking.
IS YOUR KNEE CAUSING YOU BACK PAIN: CORRECT YOUR KNEES
PROBLEM POSTURE :
a. Knee joints are pushed back into a locked or even backward bent position,forcing increasing weight through the heels.
b. This knee position tends to cause the same pelvic and low back position described in problem posture . Tipped forward with increased low back arch.
c. Chest is depressed, “sitting” on the pelvis.
d. The head and neck will tend to drop forward and down, following the chest position.
ADJUSTMENT EXERCISE: unlock the knees, level the pelvis, head/chest float.
a. Unlock the knees: relieve the backward strain and let your knees shift forward slightly, over the front of your ankles. This will be easier if your are slight heels as opposed to flats.
b. Level the pelvis as described under problem posture number
c. Allow your chest to expand and lift with air as you breathe in; allow it to stay floating up tall over your level as your exhale.
d. Allow your head to float up tall and level, centered over your upright chest- as if it were filled with helium or being pulled upward by a string,with no effort on your part.
PROBLEM ALIGNMENT: SLUMPING WITH YOUR ABDOMEN LEADING OUT OVER YOUR “SKIS”
a. Your pelvis and abdomen are leaning out in front, forcing increased weight through the balls of the feet.
b. The upper body may compensate by slumping: chest “sitting” on the abdomen and head dropped down and forward.
ADJUSTMENT EXERCISE: centering the pelvis, head/chest float
a. Bring your pelvis back, centering it over your base of support so that you feel increased weight through your heels.
b. Allow the chest and head to lift when you inhale and to stay floating up when you exhale. Imagine a string lifting you up tall and vertical, back over your heels.
c. Lift your lower abdomen up and in to help pull you back over your heels and lift you up tall.

Bursitis is a disorder that is characterized by inflammation of a fluid filled sac called the bursa. Bursa is present in between various tissues such as muscles, tendons and bones where friction may occur. This sac cushions the tissues and prevents friction. The usual areas that are affected by this condition are hip, shoulder and the elbows.
The symptoms of bursitis are:
1. You will experience pain in the affected area
2. Tightness and stiffness in the area
3. Local swelling of the muscle
4. Redness of the area
5. Any physical contact with the area causes pain
Bursitis may also occur due to the following reasons:
1. Ageing results in loss of elasticity of the tendons, thus impairing their ability to tolerate any stressful activity
2. Sports such as baseball where you are required to throw the ball with force may lead to bursitis
3. If you do tasks that require kneeling down on a regular basis
4. Sitting on hard surfaces for extended periods of time
5. Abnormalities such as improperly placed joints
6. Inflammation from other conditions such as gout, thyroid disorders and rheumatoid arthritis may lead to bursitis
The condition is treated by using a variety of methods such as exercise and medication. Antibiotics are used to treat any underlying infection causing bursitis. Injections may be administered to reduce inflammation in the affected area along with exercises to strengthen the affected muscle. In severe cases, the doctor may resort to surgery to treat this condition.
You may use certain preventive measures to stay clear of bursitis. Some of them are
1. Lift with proper form: If you are lifting something heavy, then make sure you keep the spine straight and bend your knees slightly.
2. Take breaks: Don’t remain in the same position for long durations, take small breaks and walk around to release the stress from your legs.
3. Exercise: Do strength building workouts to build strength in the joints. Include mobility and flexibility stretches in your routine to keep your joints healthy, thus increasing the range of motion.
4. Maintain optimal weight levels: If you are obese, then take steps to reduce your weight. Maintain a proper diet to check your waistline. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.
