Postpartum Pelvic Floor Rehab

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.

What Is Pelvic Floor Rehab?

Pelvic floor rehab is a physical therapy to help patients suffering from pelvic floor dysfunction. The pelvic floor muscles are the muscles that extend from the tailbone to the pubic bone. Pelvic floor dysfunction is normally associated with women, but men can also suffer from this kind of muscle weakness.

Pelvic floor rehab or therapy is usually the primary treatment as it is non-invasive, natural, and focuses on strengthening the muscles of that area with an integrative therapeutic exercise program. This program is likely to have a two-pronged approach. Some exercises you will do with a chiropractor or physical therapist, who can also use this time to monitor the results of this program. The second part is incorporating some of these exercises at home for the best results.
