pel·vic tilt

(pel'vik tilt)
An exercise that strengthens abdominal muscles, relieves backache, and improves posture. The back is pressed to a firm, flat surface (wall or floor), flattening the spine. This can be done in supine, sitting, or standing positions. The pelvic tilt is the most commonly recommended prenatal exercise for back pain.
