Party Crasher Alert: Common Pelvic Health Issues

Your pelvic floor is like the unsung hero of your body’s core, quietly supporting you through laughs, sneezes, and jumps. But sometimes, even heroes need a little help:

  • Oops Moments: Also known as urinary incontinence. Whether it’s a sneeze or a full-on belly laugh, leaks can happen when you least expect them.
  • Downward Shifts: This is pelvic organ prolapse, where things like your bladder or uterus get a bit too relaxed and droopy.
  • The Mysterious Aches: Chronic pelvic pain can feel like the party guest who won’t leave, causing discomfort that’s hard to ignore.

But fear not- with some at-home exercises, plus in-office therapy, we’re here to help you feel good as new.

🧚‍♀️ Magic Touch: The Role of Physical Therapy in Pelvic Health

– Hands-On Magic: With techniques like manual therapy, your therapist can help soothe pain and get those muscles moving correctly.

– Educational Enchantments: Knowledge is power. The more you know about your pelvic floor, the better you can care for it.

🌟 Spotlight on Super Moves: Pelvic Floor Exercises You Can Do at Home

Ready to feel like the queen of your castle? Here are some fabulous exercises to keep your pelvic floor fit and fabulous:

Kegel Concerto: Imagine you’re trying to stop the flow of pee. That’s your pelvic floor! Squeeze those muscles for three seconds, relax for three, and repeat ten times. Aim for three sets a day. It’s like a mini workout for your nether regions!

Hip Bridge Hoedown: Lie on your back with knees bent and feet flat on the floor. Lift your hips to form a straight line from knees to shoulders. Hold this pose while you count to three, then gently lower back down. This move isn’t just a booty booster—it’s great for the pelvic floor too!

Sensational Squats: Stand with your feet hip-width apart, bend your knees, and drop your hips like you’re sitting in a chair. Keep your chest up and back straight. Press through your heels to stand back up. This is a full-body tune-up that gives your pelvic muscles a solid high-five.

The great thing about these moves is that you can do them anytime- during your favorite evening shows, while the kiddos are watching their programs, or during your zoom calls. (Just remember to turn off the camera).
