Lower Cross Syndrome occurs when there is muscular imbalance between weak and tight
muscles around lower back / hip. The tight muscles are generally the hip flexors and erector
spinae, and weak muscles are the abdominals and gluteal muscles. Shortening occurs in the hip
flexors while weakening occurs in the abdominals and gluteal muscles.
- Poor posture
- Sedentary lifestyle
- Improper posture while exercising – overused or overtrained muscles.
- Physical and health related factors
- Reduced mobility or stiffness in lumbar, hip, hamstring, or pelvic region
- Pain in hip flexors, groin, spine, or gluteal muscles
- Protruding stomach from an overly arched low back
- Tension in the lower back and/or gluteal muscles
Lower Cross Syndrome should not be left untreated, that could worsen and possibly lead to a
longer recovery or complicated changes to other joints and muscles.
