Lower Cross Sýndrome

Lower Crossed Syndrome
Because of the freedom of movement that we have at our waist and incorrect postures in everyday life, there is often muscular imbalances. 
One of the most common that we see in people is the lower crossed syndrome known for increased lumbar lordosis, anteversion of the basin and distention of the abdomen. The glutes are higher and the belly is forward, which leads to increased pressure in the lower back and therefore pain.
In this situation the flexor muscles of the thigh, spinal erectors and latissimus dorsi are more contracted than usual as the muscles of the glutes, hamstrings and core stabilizers are more elongated.
To help correct this posture should start the work of the contracted muscles with specific stretching and then work the muscles that are more elongated with strengthening exercises such as planks, leg curl and leg extension exercises.
Thus, gradually, will again restore muscle balance.
