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.
