Why is pelvic floor physical therapy so important?
Pelvic floor physical therapy is so beneficial and important because of the way it can change women’s lives. If you have ever had bladder leakage or pain with sex you will understand how much pelvic floor health matters. This type of physical therapy helps to strenghten your pelvic floor muscles and those muscles play so many roles in our daily lives.
Why aren’t kegels an effective form of pelvic floor exercise?
Think about working out any muscle. You don’t gain muscle by simply squeezing and releasing a muscle. If that’s all it took, we’d all be super fit. We need to work out our pelvic floor muscles just like every other muscle so they can lengthen and shorten and work with your body. It requires more work thank a kegel can give you!
Will pelvic floor therapy work years after I’ve had children
Pauline has worked with women from all walks of life and it doesn’t matter when you had kids or when you had trauma to your pelvic floor. She talks about a woman who hadn’t had successful intercourse in years because of scar tissue. There is definitely hope when it comes to this! Just as I would NEVER tell someone not to work out becasue there is no hope for them, Pauline is the same way. She knows what she’s doing (as any pelvic floor therapist should) and cna get good results for her patients.
