Proper Alignment to Help Prevent Pelvic Pain?
Did you know that your pelvic pain can be exasperated by how you stand? If your pelvic alignment is off, then the entire foundation that your pelvic floor muscles, nerves and ligaments are lying on is off. This is really important for pelvic floor sufferers.
In the past few months I have started standing more with my laptop. One day I noticed that I was tilting forward, and I mean LEANING forward. I was not even remotely aligned. My lightening fast mind clued in to that fact that I needed to get a better understanding of how to align myself properly, if I wasn’t going to create further pelvic floor pain issues. Seriously, I do not need more issues. Do you?
For a good blog post that deals with how to be aligned properly, head on over to Katy Bowman’s website and read this post called, Mind Your Pelvis. She describes in detail how to get yourself properly aligned.
