Many women are told, casually, by their gynecologists that they have a “tilted uterus”, and that this is “normal”. It is, in fact, so common, that many anatomy and physiology textbook illustrations picture the uterus in a forward tilt. The forward tilt, anteverted, is the most common uterine malposition, though there are others, including retroverted, retroflexed, anteflexed, right leaning and left leaning.
Women exhibit a wide variety of digestive and menstrual complaints that are often specific to the specific tilt of the uterus she has. These symptoms include premenstrual bloating, breast tenderness and migraines, painful periods, painful ovulation, bladder frequency, urgency, incontinence and infections, yeast infections, lower back pain, and constipation.
Regardless of the direction of the tilt, the Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal TherapyTM gently and non-invasively repositions the uterus, allowing optimal blood, lymph and nerve flow to this area, alleviating and sometimes entirely eliminating many of the above symptoms.
