Small Hemipelvis

What exactly is a small hemipelvis and why should you care? The pelvis is made of two bones that come together with ligaments. In some people, one of these bones is smaller than the other causing a plethora of problems.

When sitting it makes the body tilt towards the smaller side, sometimes mimicking scoliosis since it causes the spine to curve to compensate. When standing, it seems like the legs are two different lengths. It can cause lower back pain, hip pain, leg pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, and jaw pain. To fix this problem you can sit with something under the smaller side like a magazine.
