From: The influence of changes in trunk and pelvic posture during single leg standing on hip and thigh muscle activation in a pain free population

Figure 4

Muscle activation levels in anterior pelvic rotation compared to posterior pelvic rotation. Muscle activation levels are presented as the relative change in EMG to the reference Upright Standing (hatched bars) as well as the mean of the individual differences in activation (diamonds). Positive difference values indicate higher activation levels for the given muscle in Anterior Pelvic Rotation, negative values represent increased activation levels in Posterior Pelvic Rotation. The values are the difference relative to the activation level in upright stance. 95% CI are represented by the whiskers. Semitendinosus (ST); biceps femoris (BF) (long head); gluteus maximus (Gmax); rectus femoris (RF); vastus lateralis (VL); tensor fascia lata (TFL); gluteus medius (Gmed); and adductor longus (AL).
