Pelvic Floor Breakdown
Although pelvic therapy may not work for everyone, it can be quite effective for certain individuals. Pelvic treatment can be very effective and can treat a wide variety or dysfunction for women, children and men through soft tissue release and exercises. The pelvic floor is a series of muscles that relate to the digestion, reproduction, and urinary health of an individual.
Pelvic Floor Dysfunction and its related conditions can be due to infections (usually not diagnosed), pregnancy or childbirth, poor posture from the chronic low back or SI dysfunction, trauma (e.g. bad fall), or following surgery. It can also be insidious and appear to have no real incident that caused it. Pelvic pain sometimes occurs when muscles of the pelvic floor are too tight, or weak, read below to see if an RMT specializing in Pelvic Floor can help.
What can a Pelvic Floor RMT treat?

Core and hip strengthening
When and when not to do kegels

Some pelvic pain may not be soft tissue related and it is highly recommended that only a licensed healthcare provider that can diagnose internal structure should be seen first to rule out any pathologies prior to seeing an RMT that specialises in Pelvic Floor Therapy
