What is a pelvic floor?
Your pelvic core 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 core means more than Kegel exercises. In fact,
it’s believed that up to 25% of those performing Kegels may be promoting
incontinence. Moreover, many dysfunctions come from too much tension in
the pelvic floor and releasing that tension may be necessary. Full recovery
of a compromised pelvic coremay not be possible without skilled intervention.
We have specialized training on the anatomy, physiology, and function
of the pelvic core 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.
