There are many types of pelvic floor problems
From occasional incontinence to prolapse to a simple feeling that "it just doesn't feel the same". Rare is the woman who experiences no pelvic floor issues whatsoever after birth!
Pelvic Floor Physiotheraphy
I work closely with pelvic floor physio Liron Murphy at Momentum Physiotherapy to address issues like these. This isn't something that should be dealt with solely through training, or only by a trainer. It's important to see a physiotherapist, as they are qualified to do an internal assessment and treatment directly to these muscles.
So what do I do?
After suffering from pelvic floor issues, many women are somewhat scared of starting up exercise again and unsure of what to do. Many have had a break from exercise and have lost confidence in their bodies, especially with pelvic organ prolapse.
After seeing Liron, you may want to ease back into training in a way that you can be sure will not only not cause damage or make things worse, but actually help continue to rectify the issues. I can help you to understand how you can start exercise while still healing and in a way that will assist that healing process.
I employ a multidisciplinary approach, involving:
Addressing breathing mechanics and managing pressure
Addressing mobility issues
Identifying muscular imbalances
Learning correct technique
Applying progressive overload to improve gradually overtime, in a way that is in tune with your body
Liron relays information to me (with your permission) to ensure that we are making good clinical choices and progressing at the right pace.
She also approves any big jumps in training, like adding impact or increasing weight.
We get great results and I personally really enjoy this aspect of my work. It's amazing to see women grow and regain confidence after having challenging pelvic floor issues.
