These muscles provide an enormous support to the pelvic organs. When the pelvic floor muscles are strong they hold the organs in place. Wait there’s more… the abdominal pressure above your organs is another significant component. The pressure aspect encompasses many different factors: your back posture and your abdominal wall muscle activity are some to mention.
You can’t even see your pelvic floor! That’s why the medical guidelines state that kegel exercises should be confirmed by a vaginal assessment and suggest a certified Pelvic Floor Physiotherapist. In the meantime, to help your prolapse, avoiding crunches and lifting are a good place to start.
