The movement of the pelvis is important in many human activities including normal walking. Pelvic posture directly affects spine, head, and limb alignment, which are critical for proper musculoskeletal function and health . The study of how the pelvis moves during normal human walking has been analyzed for more than 100 years. For individuals with neuromotor disabilities, exercises that increase the pelvic range of motion can improve posture and limb alignment and increase functional abilities .
