We should exercise our pelvic floor regularly like any other muscle to maintain tone. Pelvic floor training is important at any age.

Exercise your pelvic floor regulary

“The famous pelvic floor” – you may have heard about it after pregnancy but a lot of women forget it again. However, after a few years, or during certain activities like sports, we suffer from urine leakage. The reason for that is often our weakened pelvic floor which causes urinary leaks. Through regular exercises, you can prevent future inconveniences and pelvic issues.

Heels, pelvic floor’s n°1 enemy!

Wearing high heels modifies the global body balance because the whole body weight is applied to the tip of the feet. The lower back is arched, and the pelvis is off its axis, just like the pelvic floor. These posture modifications affect the strength of the pelvic floor that can lose elasticity. Don’t forget to walk barefoot regularly to re-balance your posture.
