Mastering Correct posture is central to successfully managing your prolapse
for a lifetime. The posture is about restoring your natural lumbar spinal curvature
so your bladder and uterus stay low and forward against your lower abdominal wall.
It has been said that "prolapse is a disorder of civilization". In our lives, we have comfortable
furniture and car which allow us to relax into a "C" shaped spine rather than the natural
curvature that is designed into our spines through the wedge shaped vertebae sets
our spinal shape. When the lumbar spine flattens , the pelvic organs are pulled away
from the front abdominal wall and fall back into the vaginal space. When the lumbar
spine flattend, the "dowager's" hump , or kyphosis begins to form which in time, limits
the mobility of the upper arm, and the ability to raise the chest, which is critical to good
posture. This makes it critically important to be mindful of how we sit,stand, walk, lift and
carry in our everyday lives. The misguided emphasis has been on tucking the bottom, which
is not friendly to the female pelvic organ support system.
The key is to not put pressure on the pelvic organ support system, and practice correct posture.
Even running can be done successfully if practicing proper posture while doing it. The success
of managing your prolapse is not a quick fix, but a journey of discovery your self, and being mindful
and listening to your beautiful body when it tells you whether you are doing something right or wrong.
