If you Google “pelvic floor” you will get some pretty interesting advice and claims and even *ahem* devices to help you with your pelvic floor… How did a group of small (but important) muscles get so much attention?
The muscles at the base of your pelvis are critical in preventing incontinence and in stabilising your pelvis and spine under load; and activation of these muscle groups are considered foundation exercises in our Function Fit, because they are the “foundation” of most movements you make!
Studies have even shown a correlation between poor pelvic floor and abdominal activation and low back pain so simple exercises and training strategies can not only help with pelvic floor activation but also how you handle load.
So if you want to be able to do more with less pain come and see one of our osteopaths or exercise physiologists for a personalised plan.
Pelvic floor dysfunction can lead to difficulty with a whole range of daily activities but simple strategies can often provide relief. To find out more about how to better treat and manage your specific pelvic floor issue, call 03 8370 3044 or book online to see one of our Osteopaths.
