  • How Yoga Can Prevent and Heal Uterine Prolapse: Empower Your Pelvic Floor

    Uterine Prolapse

    Uterine Prolapse

    Uterine prolapse is a condition where muscles and tissues around the uterus become weak and cause the uterus to sag and drop into vagina.

    The muscles, ligaments and tissues in the pelvis area are called pelvic floor muscles. These muscles support uterus, rectum, vagina, bladder and other pelvic organs. A prolapse occurs when pelvic floor muscles are damaged or weakened to the point where they can no longer provide support. This causes pelvic organs to drop into or out of the vagina.

    What causes uterine prolapse?

    Uterine prolapse is a fairly common condition where risk of developing the condition increases with age. Several other factors can contribute to the weakening of the pelvic muscles, including:

    1. Loss of muscle tone as a result of menopause.
      Pregnancy.
      Vaginal childbirth, especially if you’ve had many babies or large babies
      Obesity.
      Chronic coughing or straining.
      Chronic constipation.

    How yoga asana helps to cure uterine prolapse ?

    Yoga can help strengthen and stabilize the pelvic floor muscles, reduce pelvic floor pain, and even help women gain control over their urinary functions.

    Strengthening the pelvic floor with yoga can also lead to reduced risk of pelvic organ prolapse and improved recovery from childbirth.

    During medical yoga therapy, asanas like bhadakon asana, prasarita paduttan asana helps strengthen pelvic floor muscles.
    The Setu Bandhasana, or Bridge Pose, strengthens the pelvic muscles and promotes hormonal balance.

    Sarvang asana (Shoulder stand) also provides prolapse relief by simply reversing the effect of gravity on the prolapsed tissues.

    Iyengar yoga modifies asanas with the help of props to suit all body types. Props help to attain asana in correct alignment and one can stay longer in the pose to get the maximum benefit.

    So, hey all you ladies, if you have not started working out to strengthen your pelvic floor muscles, start today!

    Save yourself from several pelvic floor dysfunction issues as you age.
