It is generally recommended that you start running 6 -12 weeks postpartum after consulting with your medical practitioner who may conduct a pelvic health screen.
You may wish to start with a short run/walk on flat surfaces until you gradually increase the run and reduce the walking.
Some of our customers have experienced some of any of the following.
- Low backache.
- Pain in the hip and buttocks area that increases during or after walking.
- Pain in the hip and low back after standing for a while
- Unbalanced walking or gait.
- Painful feeling in the lower back or hip while laying down.
It is likely that you have pelvic instability/ pelvic floor dysfunction.
The physiotherapists we work with usually recommend that you take some time to strengthen the muscles that support the pelvic girdle. Some exercise 5 times a week. Exercises like the pelvic tilt, Open clam, reverse open clam, lateral step ups and squats.
Our Coretech shorts and leggings can also quicken the process by stabilising the core and pelvis.
