Greg, Thanks for posting this article. I just got some Janda articles from my PT to answer all the questions I had for him. :-) I have been seeing this "anteriorly rotated or anteverted pelvis" pretty often as well. What is interesting is that while this condition, and many others like it, improve faster from manual manipulation (like the article says), there are some pretty simple exercises that can really help (again, he says this in the article).

Joe, this is the most technical part of the article, the rest doesn't require a translation and is pretty helpful. Check it out, worth twice the price! I just got this book "Color Atlas of Human Anatomy: Locomotor System" by Werner Platzer that describes the muscles systems Rampe mentions.
