What is a pelvic floor?
Your pelvic floor is the grouping of muscles between your pubic bone,
tail bone, and sits bones.
How can i tell if I have a compromised pelvic floor?
There are many symptoms including frequent urination, pain during sex,
leakage with coughing, sneezing, or physical activity, chronic back or
hip pain, inability or difficulty achieving orgasm, or general feelings
of weakness in your pelvic region.
Having a healthy pelvic floor means more than Kegel exercises. In fact,
it’s believed that up to 25% of those performing Kegels may be promoting
incontinence. Full recovery of a compromised pelvic floor may not be possible
without skilled intervention. We have specialized training on the anatomy,
physiology, and function of the pelvic floor region and can work with
you to address and treat the symptoms of a compromised pelvic floor.
We can assess motor control, strength, endurance, and timing of muscle
activation of your core muscles and work with you to help you regain your
pelvic floor strength.
