Anterior pelvic tilt

I am having back pain since a couple of months but i was diagnosed with hyperlordosis a few years back. I go to the gym, lift heavy weights, i am a certified trainer and there is nothing wrong with the form and technique. Can the anterior pelvic tilt be reversed ? If yes what are the exercises and stretches ? I can't stop going to the gyn and just cannot stop lifting weights. So please consider the facts and reply. Thank you

Kindly meet a physiotherapist who has sound and indepth knowledge about fitness programs.
I am working for gym related injuries since last 10 years.
Hyperhydrosis can be treated by simple iontophoresis.
It's muscular imbalance but stopping some exercises to correct it is not going to help you.
Kindly visit or call me if you can.
Take care

there is clearly a problem of muscular imbalance which should be corrected by a qualified physio as they have the exact knowledge of anatomy.some muscles have become excessively strong while some are weaker than their required strength. You can do your workout after getting the balance of your muscles.A break or modifications of your workout may be required for some time.

Excessive anterior pelvic tilt is a consequence of doing heavy exercises without proper glute max strength & also without proper transverse abdominal & most importantly psoas major activation /Non neutral strengthening. I see many patients suffering with back pain having excessive lordosis & I often treat all of their core. Doing planks or crunches is not core training. It's utter waste . You will be activating mostly the rectus abdominus( six pack ) muscle which is a more or less useless muscle. I see most of the gym folks with these problems. You always have to remember that gymming is not complete fitness. Gym activities are not natural activities for humans. Those people who do hard labour are the fittest with very less anterior pelvic tilt. There are several things which should be treated in this case which I can't tell in this message. From hip flexor / lat release to thoracic mobilization, breathing pattern correction ( diaphragm activation) most importantly posterior chain activation . All of this can happen with knowledge & huge experience which only few can do. I gave you maximum tips dude. Good luck!
