I was looking into a condition I have, anterior pelvic tilt, quite a bit. I ran into a website describing part of the issue as reciprocal inhibition. This was my confusion:
Reciprocal inhibition, defined by just about everyone, is the relaxation of muscles antagonistic to muscles currently contracting, and vice versa. How is this different from regular muscular flex? When we flex a muscle, don't the antagonistic muscles relax to compensate, same as in reciprocal inhibition? Thanks.
