    Left what? What’s a pelvic torsion?
    •••
    The pelvis is a huge bone that your spine and hips connect to. The pelvis is commonly referred to as your waist. What most people don’t know is that the pelvis is actually made of two identical bones called innominates. The left innominate and the right innominate combine to make the pelvis. •••
    While a bit controversial, it is generally accepted that the innominates can move forward or backward, separate from one another. When this happens (and it happens quite often) a torsion, or twist, is the result. A left pelvic torsion occurs when the innominates are torqued to the left. •••
    Why does this matter? The torsion of the pelvis will change the length of the muscles around it, shortening some and lengthening others. It can also cause rotations in the opposite direction in other parts of the body, mainly the thoracic spine.

    Bottom line- fix it! Here’s how 👍
