What is the Pelvic health?
Most people are familiar with the term “pelvic floor,” but many are unaware of what it accomplishes regularly. Your bladder, colon, rectum, and sexual organs are all supported by your pelvic floor, which works nonstop.
The optimum possible management and operation of the reproductive, colon, and bladder systems are known as pelvic health. It is more than just that these organs are healthy and not feeble. A person’s overall physical, emotional, social, and sexual well-being is strongly influenced by their pelvic health.
One should adopt a holistic perspective and concentrate on the functioning of pelvic organs rather than disease management while attempting to improve pelvic health. Additionally, we examine the effects of medication on all pelvic organs, including those unique to the female body, necessitating further study on gender variations in the bladder and bowel care.
How can Therapy help?
The purpose of treatment is to reduce pain, muscle weakness, and dysfunction while increasing the strength and efficiency of the pelvic floor muscles. To increase the muscles’ strength and functionality during treatment, a qualified physical therapist enters them through the rectum or vagina.
Your pelvic floor muscles can’t relax or coordinate properly if you have pelvic floor dysfunction.
Physical therapy for the pelvic floor is used to treat issues with the pelvic floor. Exercises that are part of this specialist therapy can aid in the relief of symptoms, including pain, discomfort, and disturbances to your quality of life.
What roles do therapists play?
Physical therapists for the pelvic floor may employ many methods, including:
Abdominal exercises. Patients are instructed on the pelvic floor muscles’ proper contraction and relaxation techniques. These exercises can increase flexibility, strengthen weak muscles, and stretch tight ones.
Manual treatment Stretching or hands-on massage by a physical therapist may aid mobility, blood flow, and posture.
During pelvic floor treatment, the patients need to be taught exercises to strengthen and stabilize their core, or the main muscles that support the trunk, including the pelvic floor, abdomen, back, and diaphragm. The pelvic floor muscles need to be retrained and strengthened to do this.
Your therapist will identify the extremely tight muscles in your body and provide stretching exercises to help you become more mobile and coordinated. Additionally, we will instruct you on posture corrections, stress reduction methods, and diaphragmatic breathing to help with symptoms and your general health and well-being.
