Hey, Killer Bs, let’s talk about your PELVIC PROLAPSE! ? I know, right? But seriously, here’s the scoop: prolapse (and other common issues like low back pain and incontinence) is caused by weak pelvic floor muscles.
In fact, your pelvic floor muscles are related to EVERYTHING you do, so strengthening them is vital to your overall health.
Thankfully, it’s also surprisingly simple and takes just five minutes a day. Pelvic floor muscles are part of your deep core stabilizers, which means that when they’re strong, your whole body can get stronger. (Plus, you know, your organs can stay where they belong…)
The easy floor exercises in this video are gentle enough for any fitness level.
KEY FACTS you NEED to know about pelvic prolapse and how these exercises can help you heal:
? TALK TO YOUR DOCTOR about the specifics of your pelvic prolapse. This video is general information, and your case might have really specific exercises you should or shouldn’t do.
? YES, THESE EXERCISES CAN HEAL your pelvic prolapse and help you return to normal activity when you are super, super, super consistent with them. Pelvic prolapse has an 80% non-surgical recovery rate.
? These exercises should be done DAILY. Every. Single. Day. No excuses, no exceptions.
? You won’t see or feel results for a while. THREE to SIX WEEKS is the minimum time before you might notice changes and many women take as long as three to six MONTHS. Don’t get discouraged! Keep at it!
