New Feature: Bi-weekly Tip

Written by 

Bi-Weekly Pelvic Floor Tip : Practice good posture:

Whether you are a new mom or a grandmother, we all need awareness of our posture. Particularly when you are pregnant, the chin begins to jut out, the shoulders round forward, and the knees tend to lock. This can cause muscle tension and pain in the lower back, neck and knees.

Try this: Every time you walk through a door, bend your elbows to 90 degrees, lay one on each side of the door frame at shoulder height, and lean into it. You will feel a wonderful stretch across your chest (pectoral muscles), and in the rotator cuff area (the shoulder joint). If you have poor range of motion bending the elbows for the doorway stretch, use a wall and extend one arm at a time on the wall at shoulder height and turn your body in the opposite direction. You will feel a great “opening” sensation. In combination with this, raise your sternum as you walk as well as when seated, throughout the day. It’s amazing how this works. First of all you will look 10lbs thinner, and importantly you will be opening the chest which will help you breath much more deeply. Practice these two things over the next couple of weeks, and notice how different you feel!
