-Anterior pelvic tilt (a.k.a. sway-back) is when the lower back is excessively curved and the glutes are prominent behind. It causes excess backside mechanics and reduces knee-lift as the hamstring is stretched more as the hips sit further back (and hamstrings attache to the hips) whilst sprinting. It also causes the foot to land in front of the COM casuing increased breaking forces and more stress on the hamstring. Is this correct?
That's correct. Having an excessive anterior tilt basically shifts the swing phase ROM from front side to backside and alters the function and firing patterns of the hip extensors.
If this is correct, then i'm guessing an anterior pelvic tilt produces more stress for the hamstrings which would likely increase the rate of injury??
I think the injury tie-in is more related to the secondary affects of anterior pelvic tilt (i.e. that athletes who exhibit this posture are almost always kicking at the ground at ground contact rather than pushing down AND they're contacting way in front of COM).
