The kind of treatment offered varies greatly depending on you.
Everyone is individually assessed and considered for their own treatment plan specific to their needs.
We regularly get people who go to the GP saying they have done pelvic floor training.
However, women’s health physio offers a lot more than just the simple Kegel exercise squeezes.
The pelvic floor is like any muscle. It is important to train it to move through its full range of movement and be very precise.
This means going further than just the basic pelvic floor squeezes.
It includes training it for the demands you put through it. For example, runners need to train for more impact rather than just squeezes in sitting.
The pelvic floor also needs to be coordinated. Coordinating with the whole musculoskeletal system so that the body works in a balanced way.
Treatment can also include internal release and ‘down training’ which can then be self-administered. Breathwork can also help relax the pelvic floor, or help you to get an effective contraction.
The aim is to get you back to the things you currently find challenging!
This might be lifting, impact exercise, walking or running. Whatever the problem, the treatment has to be specific to you and your goals.
