Important to know

Physiotherapy for pelvic floor muscles

Correct exercises, relaxation, breathing techniques, and trainings are needed to permanently help with weak and flexible pelvic floor muscles that happen due to pregnancy, childbirth, gynaecological surgeries or menopause, or with perineal tears and related pains and movement issues.

Weak pelvic floor muscles often lead to urine leakage, incontinence, dull sex life, and other uncomfortable issues. Physiotherapist can improve the pelvic floor muscles, coordinate needed trainings, and give exercises to be carried out at home independently. If needed, a physiotherapist can assess the pelvic floor muscles with a quick and painless electromyography. It helps to find the right muscles that allow the patient to learn the correct exercises and techniques.

High-toned pelvic floor muscles can cause pain in the pelvic area, during intercourse, and also when touching the external genital organs. Physiotherapist teaches correct relaxing and breathing practices, uses manual therapy, and gives instructions on how to do exercises that release stress and ease the pain.

Physiotherapist can also show techniques that improve tissue mobility, if a woman suffers from perineal tears and related mobility issues and pains.

Girl

We suggest turning to a women’s health physiotherapist if:

  • the midsection does not look the same after the pregnancy and childbirth, is differently shaped (e.g. belly button is pushing out), or you can’t flex your abdominal muscles for a longer period of time
  • laying on your back, your midsection forms a hole but when lifting your head, it creates a bump
  • you wake up with a flat midsection in the morning but by the evening the midsection is stretched out and looks like it did during the pregnancy

Physiotherapy for diastasis, or abdominal separation

Diastasis stops people from restoring their flat midsections and leaves a “post baby pooch”, it can also lead to posture problems, back or pelvic floor issues and pains. It is common among postnatal mothers but can also happen to men, children, and women who have not given birth.

Physiotherapist can treat diastasis, regardless of the age or how long it has been since childbirth.

During the first consultation, midsection is assessed, correct exercises are suggested, and a physiotherapist drafts an individual treatment plan to rebuild the abdominal muscles and midsection. An individual midsection-restoring program might be suggested if needed.

To achieve lasting results, regular therapies and daily exercises need to be carried out.
