Back and Neck Injury/Lower Back Pain


Hi, I have been suffering from lower back pain for past 4 years. I am 23 year old male. I go to gym regularly. Recently I found out about anterior pelvic tilt. Reading about APT, makes me realize that maybe my pain is due to anterior pelvic tilt. I have a very bad life style. I tend to sit a lot.

So, I have been trying to do some stretching of psoas muscles and stengthen my core. I do planks for my abs and do a lot of glute exercises like lunges.

So, my question is will strengthening and stretching help me or not.

Also, I have a bad knee(my knee cap hurts when I walk on the stairs or squat) Is APT to be blamed.

Thank You
Sincerely Yours

For access to an exercise program to improve control of muscle tension and coordination, and to eliminate anterior pelvic tilt (APT), please ask.
