There are approximately 640 muscles in the body. Some of which are the visible ones like biceps, triceps, glutes and quads. But what supports them and the rest of the body are three core muscle layers. These muscle layers, known as the Pelvic Floor, are practically invisible and rarely spoken about, let alone exercised. The pelvic floor muscles form the base of the group of muscles called the core.
Lower back pain, abdominal discomfort, light bladder leakage, prolapse are symptoms of a weakened pelvic floor and if you exercise, the symptoms worsen.
EVB Sport Shorts act like a really good sports bra… for your core.
The technology in the sportswear mimics the floor muscles and the function of the pelvic floor muscles to create a hugging type effect. The elasticated high waist with compression uplift helps to stabilize the internal organs and prevent them from bouncing up and down.
They encourage the correct position of the pelvis. They will stop you from actively over-bracing your muscles as you try to support the organs yourself or in response to your symptoms.
Your core is your powerhouse – hence it’s name really! It facilitates movement – from reaching up to get a cup out of the cupboard to running a marathon. But it also houses your inner organs and your central nervous system.
A strong core:
The support in our active wear and everyday garments is superior to anything on the market. We strive on a daily basis to make a difference in the lives of our customers. We are proud of the clinical trial results from Trinity College Dublin with over 80% of the mums preferring our garment in terms of support and security. The triple layer panels reinforce the core muscles as a reminder of what you need to do. The non elasticity provides ultimate support to the perineum, lower abdomen and lower back, supporting and activating the deep core muscles. The activewear prevents long term damage and enables you to get on with your everyday life.
The first question we should ask is why are you experiencing these conditions. Sometimes it can be more than just as a result of childbirth. There are many factors that might be causing the problems. With this in mind we work very closely with medical practitioners across the globe and can connect you with a pelvic health specialist that can give you a bespoke rehabilitation program to get you back feeling like your self again. Times have moved on since ‘just do your kegels’ and breathing correctly, stress management , diet and an exercise plan, from a trained pelvic health specialist can make all the difference. Send us an email with any queries and we’ll gladly help you out with an excellent practitioner in your area.
