Another abnormal posture that you might see is an anterior pelvic tilt. We’re going to go back to our landmarks, and we’ll start with the ASIS and let’s just see where it is with an anterior pelvic tilt. You’re going in again and palpating.
I can tell already that the ASIS in this posture is lower than it was in the posterior pelvic tilt. From here I would go around to the back, and I would check the PSIS. I find the dimple again and I place my hands there, and sure enough the PSIS is actually higher than the ASIS. Jamie is now in an anterior pelvic tilt. Another thing to notice with this is the lordotic posture in the lower spine here, and then you can see that her eyes are facing upwards and her neck is extended back.
