Altered your pants and realize the lengths are not even after you tried it on? It may not be the tailor’s mistake. Tilted Pelvis is a condition which can be brought about as a result of a number of factors that are directly related to the sufferer’s lifestyle. Many people who have jobs that involve sitting for long periods of time or into activities like walking or running for long periods are prone to a tilted pelvis or pelvis imbalance.
Tilted Pelvis is also referred to as Pelvic Obliquity. A tilted pelvis will bring about a difference in length of both legs. This will cause an imbalance and will give the appearance in some but not all cases that the sufferer is leaning to one side slightly. If this imbalance can be seen, it means the condition has grown over the years and it is time seek treatment before the tilt gets more pronounced.

Knee pain In Singapore Is Common. Many people suffer knee pain in silence due to fear of knee surgery without seeking proper knee treatment.
The knee pain survey we conducted for this article revealed that many Singaporeans have suffered from chronic knee pain at some point in their lives, and most of them are at risk of developing knee osteoarthritis in their lifetime due to poor lifestyle choices, ageing or injury.
Of the many Singaporeans with knee pain, only 50% said that they had sought professional medical treatment for their knee problems.
In spite of this, most knee pain sufferers waited until their quality of life was seriously affected before going to the doctor as they were afraid of total knee replacement surgery.
In our survey, we found that these people are more likely to endure the pain until they are unable to walk before seeking treatment for their knee pain, which is too late and too expensive.
Despite the high prevalence of chronic knee pain among Singaporeans, many are unaware of knee osteoarthritis – the most common form of osteoarthritis and knee arthritis.

What Causes Knee Pain?
The knee is the largest and most complicated joint in your body, consisting of four bones:
The femur is the large bone in the thigh
Tibia is the large shin bone
The fibula is the small shin bone located next to the tibia
Patella is the knee cap which is the bone in front of the knee
These bones are connected by muscles, ligaments and tendons. The knee is used to bend and straighten (flex and extend) the leg. This weight-bearing joint is the most easily injured part of the body. All actions of standing up, sitting, walking, running and so on require straightening, bending, twisting and rotating of the knee. All these motions increase your risk of getting a knee injury, especially when done in the wrong position.
What Causes Knee Injury Or Accident?
Acute knee injuries are usually caused by twisting the knee or falling. Sports that involve running, jumping and sudden stopping and side-stepping at a speed, such as soccer, basketball, volleyball, tennis, and baseball, as well as contact sports such as wrestling, rugby and hockey exacerbate the erosion of knee cartilage and increase the risk of an acute knee injury. Prolonged walking or running with misalignment of the knee will cause further stress to the knee joint. That explains why glucosamine if you take it, may only be of temporary relief.
What Can Weak Knee Muscles Cause?
Having weak leg muscles also causes knee pain as they cannot support the structure of the entire leg together with your upper bodyweight that is why knee pain seems more apparent in people with weight management issues. Unstable knee joints cause pain too when you climb stairs or lift your knee as the ligaments are weak and cannot stabilize your legs in motion. Most of the time, you will feel the pain below the knee, at the back of the knee or on the inner or outer side of the knee, depending on which supporting muscles are weak.
How Can Foot And Ankle Affect Knee Pain?
The way we walk and the position of our feet and ankles have a profound effect on our legs, knees, hips and lower back. While the foot arches are spread to take in the impact when the foot lands during walking, your ankles tend to roll inwards. This is called over-pronation. When your ankle is rolled inwards; the lower leg is forced to rotate. Since the knee is not designed to rotate, over-pronation places abnormal stress on the knee joint and results in poor knee function. This will inevitably lead to excessive wear and tear to the knee cartilage, causing long-term damage and chronic pain.
