What postural dysfunction is caused by an anterior pelvic tilt?

A Lumbo-Pelvic-Hip Postural Distortion Pattern is associated with an anterior pelvic tilt with concomitant excessive lumbar extension (i.e. an excessive arch in the low back region) and is commonly associated with low back pain.

What causes posterior pelvic tilt?
