Pain and Physiotherapy
Did you know that pelvic pain has had its global prevalence compared to that of asthma ( 4.3-8.6%) . Often times these patients present with complicating factors which can make it difficult to identify or diagnose. Pelvic pain is a multisystem disorder, which includes sexual, bowel, urinary, gynecological, and musculoskeletal symptoms. It is often challenging to determine a clear mechanism behind the pain with this diagnosis.
Pelvic floor dysfunction is diagnosed by specially trained doctors and physiotherapists by evaluating the function of the pelvic floor muscles. They can also assess your ability to contract and relax these muscles. Your bones and muscles of your lower back, hips and sacro-iliac joints may be assessed as well since these joints can contribute stress your pelvic floor muscles.
Kegels are NOT always indicated for pelvic floor problems. Sometimes they do more harm than good, and often they are NOT performed correctly. If you are unsure , contact a health care provider in your community such as a specially trained doctor or physiotherapist !Book Now
