Chiropractic adjustments address spinal dysfunction, which can affect the nerves that lead to the pelvic floor muscles. By manipulating and applying force to the spinal joints, chiropractors can improve muscle and joint function, helping to stabilize the pelvic floor. As with other treatments, integration of chiropractic treatments with other care providers is essential.
Pelvic floor therapy focuses on retraining the pelvic floor muscles using external cues to engage the deeper core musculature. Depending on the type of disorder, the goal is to manipulate the muscles and strengthen them to help create stability within the core and pelvis. Simple exercises can also go a long way in improving bothersome symptoms.
