Walking, Running or Cycling with Prolapse or Incontinence

Written by 

Many clients who have been runners, joggers or cyclers in the past, and who are experiencing symptoms

of prolapse or incontinence, are concerned if they have to give up what are sometimes passionate forms

of exercise.

The answer is no.  As long as you are using the correct posture (Whole Woman) posture, I actually encourage you to

continue with these excellent forms of exercise.  As discussed in previous articles, by practising the correct posture,

you will be repositioning the bladder and uterus forward and up toward the lower front abdominal wall, and gravity

will be working for you when you walk, run or cycle.

On the other hand, if you are not practising correct natural posture, gravity will be working against you and pull your

organs back into the unsupported vaginal space. 

Remember your natural posture also aligns your hips and knees.
