Today, and all the days, we are talking about it… Pelvic Floor!
It’s Madi, one last time. I wanted to thank you all for the love and support as I make my journey back to North Dakota!
Today I will share tips and considerations of the pelvic floor as this month we are reminding you all of some of the main services offered here at Moment of Truth and the Healing Space!
The pelvic floor — I like to refer to it as the middle child. This muscle group includes three layers of muscles that are arranged in multiple directions for added support. It has so many duties but is constantly getting caught up in the middle due to the pressures of the spine, abdomen, hips, and legs. With so many outside factors acting on the pelvic floor, there are many ways that could lead to dysfunction. Added stressors include pregnancy, childbirth, infections, surgeries, aging, constipation, and many more!
The space between diaphragm, pelvic floor, abdomen, and low back easily can be referred to a soda can.
When all pieces of the can are intact and moving together, there is strength!
.. as soon as the can is dented or cracked, there is a huge risk for weakening to the walls of the can leading to dysfunction. The picture to the right demonstrates this soda can and the importance of synching breath to pelvic floor
Information about our pelvic floors has been misled: magazines prescribing Kegels, medical professionals telling you pain or leaking is normal, Kegels being the cure-all for pelvic dysfunction. The best way to learn about your body is to get a thorough assessment from a medical professional that is specialized in this area.
