Do you tuck in your bottom like Victoria Beckham? Seems that many of us do!
If you are a 'butt-tucker' it means that your pelvis is not doing its job and supporting your spine properly. When you 'butt tuck' you flatten your lumber spine and your pelvic organs are pulled away from the front wall of your abdomen - this means they could fall back into the vaginal space which is known as pelvic organ prolapse.
Butt Tucking changes the way the spine works and if one area changes the spine will always compensate elsewhere, this can cause pain and discomfort and possibly even prolapse.
So, if you want to pose like Victoria Beckham remember when the cameras stop flashing, sit up straight, straighten your spine, walk tall and kegel exercise for your pelvic floor and core muscles. By learning these good posture habits and saving the butt tucking for photo opportunities your spine and pelvic floor will stay strong and healthy.
