Tilted Pelvis Symptoms
Lots of Reasons: There are so many things going on. Your ligaments can stretch quite a bit especially in the pelvis resulting in pain. Also, the pelvis position can place stress on your spine resulting in bulging discs or even herniated disks causing the sciatica pain. Recommend seeing a pelvic floor specialized therapist that can guide you through this. Also recommend seeing a spine specialist. ...Read more
Doctor can evaluate: The pelvis is a big, strong bone... Actually several bones fused together, such as the hip bones, the sacrum (bottom of the spine), and the pubic bone. It can be tilted if one leg is longer than the other, or if one or both hip joints are abnormal (so that one leg attaches to the pelvis a little higher or lower than where the other leg attaches). An orthopedic or physical medicine doctor can help. ...Read more

What could cause painful tailbone and back of hips. Worse around menstration. I have a tilted pelvis would this be the cause? Thanks.
Maybe: Women with a retroverted (tilted) uterus tend to have more back pain with their periods and pain on deep penetration with intercourse. If this is something new or gradually worsening, you should probably be checked to see if something else is going in, like a cyst. Pain worsening around menses could also be a sign of endometriosis. ...Read more

Scoliosis: Scoliosis is a condition of curvature of the spine. The spine and pelvis are a continuous unit, like a stack of blocks.

Groin Pain: Injures of the hip joint typically involve groin pain. There may be clicking/catching of the hip when rotating or flexing the hip by bringing the knee close to your chest. Pelvic injury symptoms depend on the injury. A bony injury is unlikely unless from a high energy accident or collision. Soft tissue injury of the pelvis usually is from muscle avulsion from an explosive athletic maneuver or fall. ...Read more
Can be subtle: In many cases, the findings on a patient with even a large scoliosis curve can be subtle. This is in part why schools will screen for scoliosis. The most common findings are an asymmetry in the hips and pelvis, an elevation of one shoulder, and a rib hump, otherwise known as an asymmetric trunk rotation. An uneven pelvis can be a result of scoliosis or it can cause scoliosis as well. Thank you. ...Read more

Had microdiscectomy/flavectomy 2days ago, sciatica pain and tilted pelvis are gone...what do you recomend for these days of recovery?
After surgery: Congratulations on a successful surgery. Avoid repetitive bending and stooping in the first six weeks to prevent a recurrence of the disc herniation. Isometric exercises to strengthen the core (e.g. planks) will reduce the risk of recurrent disc herniation or delayed instability. Warm moist heat is good to relieve sore tight muscles and ice (especially at night) is good to reduce inflammation. ...Read more

Is it possible a pelvic CT scan could miss a small tumor in rectum? Gi felt a fullness is left rectum but only tilted pelvis was seen on CT scan.
Can miss: A pelvic CT scan is designed to define structures in the abdomen pelvis such as the small bowel and colon but not to define their content within the lumen of the bowel. As such when such a luminal (phenobarbital) lesion is noted it is large and bulges within the bowel to distort the structure of that segment of bowel. Small intraluminal (phenobarbital) lesions are easily missed and require colonoscopy to be recognized. ...Read more
