Learn how to tap into your pelvic floor through breath, posture, and exercise to improve your athletic/fitness performance, as well as protect your body from injury. Activities to consider (certainly not limited to) your pelvic floor and core:
Pilates and Yoga
Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP)
The vaginal canal allows for penetrative intercourse and delivery of a baby. However, it also allows for our pelvic organs to shift down into places they are not meant to be. One or more of our pelvic organs (bladder, uterus, and rectum) can shift down into the vaginal canal causing a “heaviness” or “falling out” sensation, bladder/bowel incontinence, incomplete emptying, pain, and inability to use a tampon. Other types of prolapse include urethral and rectal. This shifting is caused by downward pressure on the structures such as birthing a baby (C-section or vaginal delivery), high impact sports, breathing holding strategies, constipation (repetitive bearing down), and poor elimination habits (pushing your urine out).
These symptoms can be managed with restoring the PFM function, breath and postural strategies, positional support, and energy conservation techniques. Pelvic rehab is an effective approach to:
Manage prolapse symptoms to avoid surgical intervention
Maintain a surgical repair you have undergone
