How to explain the lower cross syndrome?
People with the lower cross syndrome have symptoms that the lower abdomen will be prominent and may be prone to low back pain. Some people may also experience knee pain. This is usually because the back of the abdomen and thighs, including the hips, is weak and the back and thighs are too tight. Then we connect the strained muscles with a thread and connect the weak muscles together with a line.
There will be a big X. Because it is concentrated in the lower body, it is called lower cross Syndrome. Many people have the lower cross syndrome. One of the most common causes is sedentary.
Why does sedentary cause this problem?
Have you tried to wear a tight, inflexible trouser? It’s easy to put on, but it’s a bit difficult to sit down, not to mention it. why? Because if you have a tight pair of pants that you just can wear, it shows that it fits your muscle curve, not much.
But when you sit down, the muscles on the front of your thighs are stretched and the trousers aren’t stretched long enough, so you’ll feel the tops of your pants tightly holding your legs on the front of your thighs.
When you squat, the muscles on the front side of the thigh pull longer. You can touch your thigh while you are in the pit. Is it hard? When we sit, what is behind the thigh? Rest it. Because it does not use it, it will stay quietly there.
After reading the lower body, look at the upper body again. Everyone must remember that once a child does not look good, a teacher or a parent will remind you. Keep your back straight.
What is the function of abdominal muscles?
The function of the abdominal muscles is to make the trunk bend or rotate, which means to keep your upper body and lower body closer together.
Why can sit-ups exercise abdominal muscles? Because your body is a line when you are lying supine, your body bends (changes from __ to L) when you sit up.
This process requires the contraction of the abdominal muscles to complete, so sit-ups can be exercised to the abdominal muscles. Let us think again about the way we sit.
If the person standing is a line, is it bent when he is seated?
Your torso has been bent, naturally using less than the abdominal muscles and then contracting. In this case, the psychological activity of the abdominal muscles and the back of the thigh is the same – “No matter what I am doing, stay quiet.”
OK, now we know that sedentary causes the front side of the thigh to be stretched and causes tension. The back side of the thigh is deprived of exercise and causes degeneration. The abdominal muscles are not exercised and cause degeneration. There is still a left back.
How can the back become tight?
Imagine if your clothes fit well enough to cover the top edge of your ass, then your ass will be completely exposed when you stoop to pick things up or tie your shoes. Or, your clothes will “run up.”
An example of this example with pants is a meaning: When you bend down, your back is stretched, and your clothes are not longer, so the clothes will “run up.”
Then when we are sitting, because the trunk has been bent and there is no use of the abdominal muscles, your upper body will become more and more bent. In the eyes of the parents, it is “more and more hunched.” If the back muscles are always stretched (seated), it will cause tension.
The general direction has already been analyzed. The Down Cross syndrome is such a thing.
Why does lower cross Syndrome make your tummy bulge out?
Imagine a flexible steel plate. If you bend the steel plate and the A side is pulled, the B side will be squeezed; the A side will be longer and the B side will be shorter.
Your back, which is now shortened by tension, pulls your upper body all the time. Correspondingly, the other side of the “plate”: Your belly will grow longer and naturally protrude.
When the abdomen protrudes, the lumbar spine will follow the curve of the abdomen, becoming more bent and free from natural physiological curvature, so there will be symptoms of low back pain.
Why does the lower cross syndrome cause knee pain?
There are various causes of knee pain, including pain, which is caused by hyperextension of the knee.
To discuss this issue, we must first understand why people can stand.
Everyone knows that a three-legged table or stool is generally a stable, two-legged table. . . . Haven’t seen it? Because the two legs simply can’t stand.
Why can humans stand on only two legs?
If we have a super slow camera, take a short shot of a standing person, and then play it back, you will find that in fact, he is constantly shaking around.
Because the two legs are too unstable, we have a pair of big feet that can serve as planes. If our feet are as sharp as compasses. I can’t imagine it.
Although the foot is already flat, if the center of gravity deviates from the middle, it will still trip to the side. Our brain and cerebellum fit seamlessly so that we can mobilize deep muscles to stabilize the center of gravity and ensure that the center of gravity is maintained in the center of the foot.
For example, I feel that I have to tip it forward and I will not let you fall down on the front side of the thigh. So we stopped!
However, under cross syndrome causes the belly to protrude and the center of gravity equals the forward movement. If you still want to stand still, you must select a part of the body to move backward to get the center of gravity back to the middle.
This part is the lower half of your lower body.
(It is not possible to stand still. It is possible to stand firm. Because the center of gravity is obviously right. But the center of gravity is in the middle.)
Well, your legs have been straightened. Now you are suffering from a lower cross syndrome. You have to stand straighter. Otherwise, you can’t stand and it leads to knee hyperextension.
What is the relationship between the lower cross syndrome and leg shape?
Body problems are generally caused by imbalances in muscle strength; imbalances in muscle strength in some places can cause bone deformation.
The o-leg and x-leg are the same things. For example, most o-type legs are stronger on the lateral thigh than on the medial side, and the medial muscles are unable to pull your knees. Therefore, when your feet touch each other, the knees do not touch together.
Under cross syndrome causes you to have a lot of problems, including lower back pain and knee discomfort. When you don’t do anything about it and ignore these questions, many of your habits will be changed.
Such as walking postures and sitting postures. Your body will find the most comfortable posture or the most labor-saving posture. (Not necessarily a good-looking or healthy posture)
If your thighs are stronger on the outside, your body will tend to use it more. Because it is powerful, your body knows and uses it more reliably. The more you use it, the more it gets exercised, the stronger it will be.
So, with some posture problems, ignoring it, it will become more serious.
