What is Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy?
Pelvic floor physiotherapy involves the assessment and treatment of pelvic floor dysfunction. The pelvic floor consists of muscles, ligaments, and tissue, which together make up the floor of the pelvis or core. The health of the pelvic floor impacts stability, breathing, posture, and control and support of internal organs. Many pelvic floor issues are related to weak or overly tight pelvic floor muscles.
If you are or have been pregnant, suffer from incontinence or nocturtia (waking multiple times a night to urinate), vaginal prolapse, or diastasis recti, then you might benefit from pelvic floor therapy.
Nadia will give a basic overview of the anatomy and function of the pelvic floor. She will talk about how dysfunction in this important area of the body can have implications elsewhere, and provide information about how these problems can be resolved or treated. Nadia will also be available for questions after the presentation.
