Pelvic stability is also a factor that needs to be taken into account when discussing pelvic space and mobility.  When certain muscles are not being used and have lost their strength, other joints, ligaments, or muscles have to take over that job.  This can cause both the uterus and the pelvis to be pulled into positions that will decrease the space available in the pelvis.  The most common muscles that need to be strengthened are the glutes and the transverse abdominis or TVA.  Below are some exercises that will help to strengthen and lengthen the muscles needed to provide pelvic stability.
