The Sway Back Posture

The Sway Back posture commonly occurs in individuals who tend to stand with knees locked back and pelvis protruding forward. Overweight individuals tend to develop a Sway Back posture.

This posture is typically characterised by:

Overly inward curve in the spine
Forward tilt of the pelvis
Protruding belly (that seems to pull the spine forward)

What Can Help This Postural Type?

Hip Flexor Stretches
Lower Back Muscle Stretches
Abdominal Crunches
Supine Bridge

Please note that if you have any postural issues, then they are best diagnosed by a qualified professional, such as your Chiropractor. They can then assist you with choosing the best exercises for your personal requirements, and ensure you do them with correct form.
