Have a UTI again?

"Sports injuries or
overly strenuous exercise can
compress spinal discs and damage
the nerves that control your
bladder," she explains. "As a
result, the organ doesn't empty
properly, leaving behind bacteria
that can cause infections." This
can happen when your spinal
alignment is off-say, from lifting
too-heavy weights or sitting
improperly on an exercise bike.
"Pay attention to when your
symptoms occur," says Gillespie.
"Many women wrongly assume
that sex, which can also introduce
infection-causing bacteria, is
always responsible for their UTIs."
