After years of education in Exercise Science and learning several modes of exercise, I thought I new all about the human body, as it pertains to exercise. In Arvigo Therapy classes, I was shocked to learn how vulnerable female pelvic organs are to prolapse and misalignments.
Here is an explanation: The female body undergoes hormonal changes throughout the menstrual cycle. One hormone, called relaxin softens/ loosens ligaments throughout the body, including uterine ligaments. The purpose of relaxin is to allow the ligaments of the uterus to grow with the uterus during pregnancy and to allow the hips to be extra flexible to make room for the baby for birth.
Follow these rules to prevent prolapse and other misalignments
