Pelvic health refers to the well-being and proper function of the pelvic region, which includes the pelvic floor muscles, pelvic organs, and surrounding structures. It's an important aspect of overall health that can have a significant impact on a person's quality of life.
What are the Pelvic Muscles?
The pelvic floor muscles are a group of muscles that form a sling-like structure at the base of the pelvis. These muscles support the pelvic organs (bladder, uterus or prostate, and rectum) and play a role in bowel, bladder, and sexual function
Manual Therapy: Hands-on techniques, including internal and external assessment and treatment of pelvic floor muscles, can help release tension and improve muscle function.
Pelvic Floor Muscle Exercises: Tailored exercises can help strengthen, relax, or coordinate the pelvic floor muscles.
Biofeedback: Specialized tools provide visual or auditory feedback on pelvic muscle activity, helping individuals learn proper muscle control.
Education and Lifestyle Modification: Patients receive education on pelvic anatomy, posture, and strategies for managing symptoms.
Behavioral Strategies: Techniques for improving bowel and bladder habits, managing urgency, and reducing pain.
Relaxation Techniques: Exercises to reduce muscle tension and stress in the pelvic region.
Therapeutic Modalities: The use of modalities like electrical stimulation to aid in muscle retraining
