Pelvic floor physiotherapy involves the assessment and treatment of pelvic floor dysfunction. Assessment is detailed and can include the following areas: lifestyle, neurological function, mobility and muscle strength, joint biomechanics, movement strategies, and breathing.
Many pelvic floor-related issues can be associated with weak or overly tense pelvic floor muscles, core system imbalance, and regional compensations.
Who would benefit from Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy? If you identify with or experience any of the following, you will benefit from pelvic floor physiotherapy: individuals of any level of physical activity or exercise training for safety clearance, exercise modification and progression with core considerations; history of pregnancy or childbirth; muscle weakness in the pelvic floor, hip, or abdominal muscles; those with diastasis recti (separation of abdominal muscles; those who experience incontinence; people who experience nocturia (waking multiple times a night to urinate); women with vaginal prolapse; and people who have pain in the back, pelvis, hips, knees, and feet.
This workshop will help you develop a clear understanding of what the pelvic floor is and its primary functions, as well as common dysfunctions and what you can do about it.
