The purpose of this case report was to determine the effects of short-term corrective exercise on pain, hip Joint range of motion and trunk muscle strength of a patient with anterior pelvic tilt (APT).
The single-subject was a 21-year-old female with APT and low back pain (LBP). Corrective exercise program was performed for 40 min/day twice a week for 4-week. LBP (VAS), lumbar disability (ODI), range of motion (hip flexion, extension, abduction, adduction, internal rotation, and external rotation) and trunk flexor and extensor strength were measured before and after 4 weeks of corrective exercise.
VAS and ODI decreased after corrective exercise. Hip joint range of motion increased at flexion, extension, abduction, adduction, internal rotation, and external rotation after corrective exercise. Trunk flexor and extensor strength improved after corrective exercise.
We demonstrated that short-term corrective exercise decreases pain and disability, increases range of motion, trunk flexor, and extensor strength of a patient with anterior pelvic tilt.
Keywords: anterior pelvic tilt, short-term corrective exercise, low back pain, hip joint range of motion
