Uterus

The Uterus: aka just another body part.

 

 

I could have called this blog: hip pain, groin pain, lower back pain, leg weakness, bladder disfunction/restrictions or pelvic floor restriction. All of these can be caused by the uterus, or more specifically, a tight ligament of the uterus. As a society we like to ignore the uterus...therefore it starts yelling!

There are many causes that can stress these ligaments: running, cycling, pregnancy and caesarean are just a few of the main causes of uterine stress.
