Pelvic rotation leads to compression/decompression of diaphragm/lungs. Normal?
Hello and happy holidays, friends,
I seem to be experiencing an interesting turn of events where straightening my back, and rotating my pelvis, while my legs are stationary, leads to mini-pauses in exhalation and inhalation while I'm breathing, like my breathing is being cut off each time I rotate. Is this a normal musculoskeletal or nervous occurrence, or not? This also occurs when I swing my hips side to side while inhaling or exhaling (but not while holding my breath).
I am also experiencing back pain along my spine localized at L1 (lumbar vertebra 1), especially when straightening back.
In addition, the straight leg raise does not cause any pain or sciatica. I was also given a physical examination by a physician to test for a hernia and he believed I have no hernia of any kind.
I also had bronchitis about a month ago and injured my back somewhat when performing a power clean about a week ago. I don't perform many abdominal workouts but lift weights for other muscles quite consistently (for the past 6 months).
Any feedback would be very appreciated.
In addition, I'm a 5'7'' male, 165 lbs.
