The Importance Of Posture

When talking about incontinence and the pelvic floor, we often tend to hear advice about strengthening our muscles with exercises such as Kegels.  However, did you know that one of the best things you can do for your pelvic floor on a regular basis is to keep good posture?  Maintaining proper posture helps to keep the pelvic floor in the most optimal position to give good support and can prevent our muscles from being too loose ore to tense.

So, what is good posture?  And how do you know if you are achieving it?  It takes practice, but with a little concentration you can learn how to hold good posture in both a standing and a sitting position.

We love this guide by Tasha Mulligan over at Hab-it on how to find your neutral spine and hold it in both a sitting and standing position.  Check it out, and start implementing good posture as one of the most essential tools to help you keep your pelvic floor in alignment.

  1. This is a great tip, using better posture has helped me control alot better during the day. I have still had problems at night, i have been using a waterproof mattress from http://www.protectabed.com/content/mattress_protectors.asp and protective underpants, but it’s so embarrassing. 🙁 my sister came to get me for my birthday for a surprise breakfast and i was mortified! thanks for the tips. any sleeping ones?
