pelvic rocking (17). Further, the exercise may allegedly affect fetal-positioning in utero if pelvic rocking exercise with a birth ball is considered useful for reducing the pain, increasing the labor progress, and making the birthing experience more satisfactory. Given the above-mentioned explanations, the present study sought to evaluate whether. You can make different moves and still rest by leaning forward, pelvic rocking, swaying, doing hip circles and figure eights and of course gently bouncing to help move the baby down.

It can help relieve back pain, decrease pelvic pressure, and it might even shorten labor. The one thing it can’t do, though, is induce labor. And the best thing about a birthing ball, you can use.

  • now this is very interesting..noticed last night just how tender my parts of the pelvis are…on the left/right sides. Its like a ‘hot’ or burning feeling. Would this also affect the rest of the back? because my mid to upper back and ribs get all messed up. I got messed up carrying a very heavy load a few weeks ago, its been hell trying to get the medics to sort this…all they do is dish out pills.

  • 8:05 Level? Listen I don’t drink, and it certainly wasn’t level. 2:25 or 8:05??? But your tips are spot on for this condition, good for SIJ as well…

  • But if woman had an anal fissure surgery (sphincterotomy) I think she would suffer from a huge problem, because her anal muscle became weak as a result of the surgery and any type of exercising would not help her because this surgery intends to divide the muscle, so the exercise will not work for it. That is annoying issue especially if this women has a (Perineal Spong spot) as her active sexual spot, which is located in front of the anal muscle which is supposed to support the perineal area (PS spot).
    Can you explain a solution, please?

  • Ive just recently had twins and have very bad pelvic girdle pain. Im having to use sticks to walk around and lifting my feet off the floor hurt when walking and just walking up the stairs is painful as im having to take steep steps. Im unable to lie on my side in bed as it causes chronic pain just attempting to turn onto my side. Would these exercises be safe for me to do as i really want to get back to normality as soon as possible.

  • I have pid after laproscopy surgery.. Lots of pain in left side abdomen and left lower back side.. Iam taking antibiotics since 3 days.. How many days it will take to cure and is back pain occurs in pid..

  • Some of these you’re describing are Osteopathic techniques. The sooner you can address it in relation to when it happens the better. Even if these make a small difference it can be a good sign that what you’re dealing with is at least partially musculoskeletal and you should seek out someone who knows what they’re doing. A GOOD chiropractor or a GOOD D.O. are your best bets. But there are a lot of both that aren’t very good so don’t get discouraged, keep looking.

  • Or you could just monitor the posterior superior iliac spine while your patient bends forward. It lets you know WHICH SIDE is wrong. Which ever moves first or farthest is the side to blame.

  • Dear @Michelle Kenway, I have just watched another video about Pelvic Floor exercise and here it seems very opposite of what you suggest. The man says to have the back against the ground (flat) without inward curving.
    What should I do and why in that specific way?
    Thank you

  • I have a really bad back and need surgery, but I’m trying to push it off as long as possible. It’s caused by my rare diseases. Thanks for this video, it’s exactly what I was looking for.

  • Hi! Dear. M suffering from loose motion and gastric problem especially in the morning since normal delivery( Four years old baby).. what is reason behind it.. which too difficult to control it. can u suggest me some exercise for cure it?

  • I hurt myself deadlifting last November. 6 months. I’ve been to my chiropractor and done all kinds of silly to dangerous stretches and exercises for sciatic nerve pain. I have been depressed, feeling hopeless because chiro isn’t working and neither are any of the stretches or exercises. Just attempting this made a huge difference immediately. I think I’ll need to use this for a while to get things reset properly but I will sleep tonight without pain. Kinda wanna cry. Thanks.

  • I just tried this now after months of pain and feeling “twisted”. I instantly feel amazing. So glad this video popped up as a recommendation. Thank you!

  • Doing this solo, I wonder (as he said) that you could do the contractions (second series) without someone pressing, thinking a big ball and just contract?

  • I will be doing this! The three chiropractors iv went to cant get it.. im 9 months going with this pain. I cant sit on the floor with my kids, i cant hardly do much and i have 5 kids! Iv never been in this much pain before

  • Tim on step 2, when I raise my head, my neck and upper back muscles start to hurt and get tired after about 2 deep breaths. Could I (should I), place a towel or block under my head in this case? Or is it just weakness, and with time it will strengthen? Just found your channel (and subscribed). Will start with the basics of breathing first, and then move on to other rocking techniques. Thanks!

  • Whoa! I have been doing so many of these exercises incorrectly for my whole life. I would read the instructions about keeping my lower back on the ground, but until you demonstrated with the towel I wasn’t fully wrapping my head around what that meant (ridiculous, I know!). Thanks for this video! Super helpful!

  • I have a special crankset (PowerCranks) on my bike which create the same push-pull effect while you pedal. I think they would address the same problems. See:

  • Thanks, fixed my problem. If it wouldn’t have worked I guess i have a bigger problem and would seek out a local pro. most of K-Star’s stuff works

  • Do you have video for aligned hips. I’ve been two Quiropractors, and one Osteopathic Doctor, and nothing, over 25 sessions together. Yes I have had my hip and pelvic aligned or adjust before, not sure what word to use…..the Osteopathic Doctor that did it,is retired and out of Country��. He did similar movements,but one of them was pushing with his hands underneath my feet up against my hips n I pushed against his hands,one session….Done.

  • I’m just curious as to what you would recommend someone do After this? I mean should they rest, go swimming, get a massage.. What activities, if any, should one avoid & for how long? Thank you so much for this video!

  • you sound stupid, dawg. all wordy but using some silly “calibrated thumb” method to see if the client’s hips are even. you “personal trainers” remind me of fortune tellers.

  • Thank you for the exercise. I recently twisted my pelvis and when I tried this it helped.

    Two things, you should always tell everyone if it hurts, when you do the stretches, don’t do it.

    Second, you need to emphasize the need to keep the knees even while pushing and pulling, what did you call it, rotation/counter rotation, I think. Also, the muscles just need to engage, you do not have to brute force any of it at all.

  • This helps but when I get up there’s still a little area of pain on the left side of my coccyx that quickly spreads and returns me almost to the state I was in before the exercises.

  • Hi
    I am 29 and got endometriotic surgery 2 yrs back because i was suffering from severe pain in my lower abdomen in both right and left ovary and then they removed cyst through lazer. After tht pain disappered completly now when i try to go gym doing some cardio like cycling and runnig my pain gets back in my lower abdomen. Can you suggest me which excerciaea i shouldnt do?

  • Exactly the moves I was taught to do in PT. Pelvis went out of alignment after pregnancy, due to “hyper mobility” of my hip joints. These are my go-to stretches if I have even slight lower back pain.

  • Hello,

    Thank you for the informative video. Do these exercises help to revert slight pelvic organs prolapse? I am 14 weeks postpartum and have symptoms of slight POP.


  • Thanks, Tim! Never realized how much of my yoga practice naturally incorporates the wide range of movements & techniques you talk about and suggest.

  • Hi Michelle, when you do this exercise when you slide the foot forward on the ground you keep the contraction not to hard and exhale as you lower your foot and inhale as you come up. And the one one you imagine you have a glass of water the same thing you keep the contraction and exhale as you move the knee to the side and inhale as you come up. Is that correct? I just have trouble with the breathing and just want to make sure I understand correctly so I don’t put to much pressure on the pelvic floor? Thanks im a super fan of your videos…
