Some lovely feedback from one of my clients this week.

Who knew that postpartum abdominal pain would be related to the feet??

Working in pelvic health never ceases to amaze me and I try to implement some of my newer learned skills with my old to gain a holistic picture of what’s going on with my clients.

There is never a ‘recipe’ that I use as each person is so unique.

That’s is why we must look at our clients holistically to identify specific needs and to offer a bespoke pelvic health Physiotherapy service.

Are you leaking using during your workout?

Stress Urinary Incontinence has been recognised as a concern among women who participate in high intensity activity and Crossfit. Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI) is involuntary leakage of urine during activities that increase abdominal pressure. Studies show that up to 84% of women leak during Crossfit and most commonly with jumping, skipping (double unders) and weightlifting (Elks et al, 2020).
Although incontinence is very common among ladies participating in Crossfit workouts it is NOT normal. Many ladies are led to believe that due to the high intensity of the workouts that this leakage is normal, particularly if you have had a baby. However, this is not the case.

Many factors play a role in SUI:
* Weak pelvic floor muscles
* Overactive pelvic floor (tension)
* Pelvic floor reactivity issues
* pelvic floor coordination patterns
* Improper breathing patterns
* Increased abdominal bracing during exercises

The research is strong in pelvic health Physiotherapy to reduce symptoms of SUI.
Your Physiotherapist will:
* Assess the strength of the pelvic floor (and compare this to where it needs to be)
* Assess the tone of the pelvic floor (an overactive pelvic floor can be just as much of an issue as a weak pelvic floor)
* Assess the coordination and reactivity of the pelvic floor (looking at what the muscles are doing functionally)
* Assessing your breathing patterns
* Look at your abdominal control during movements
Here are some tips for reducing leakage during jumping, skipping and lifting:
1. Improve your pelvic floor strength with pelvic floor exercises through an assessment by a trained professional.
3. Practice relaxing the pelvic floor (when performing your pelvic floor exercises ensure you completely let go and relax between each contraction)
4. Build up strength, control and function with supervision of a trained professional
5. Practicing new ways when jumping, skipping and lifting to find a technique that works for you.
6. Ensuring effective breathing strategies (Breathing down into the tummy, expanding the ribs 360* allows proper movement of the diaphragm and pelvic floor)

If you are experiencing any issues why not book an initial consultation with Gillian to start your journey to improving your pelvic heath!

Pelvic Pain

Pelvic pain is common in women. It can be acute (sudden onset of new pain) or it can be chronic (Pain that lasts for a period of 6 months or more).

There are many causes of pelvic pain some of which include:

• Pregnancy related pain
• Childbrith/postnatal issues
• Musculoskeletal issues
• Endometriosis
• IBS
• Fibroids
• Inflammatory conditions
• Painful bladder syndrome
• Psychological factors

In general, it is important to make an appointment with your doctor to discuss your symptoms and seek appropriate management.

Physiotherapy and lifestyle changes can help!

Why not try some relaxation: I often recommend this guided pelvic relaxation/meditation for pelvic floor release amongst other methods of treatment.

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=4syPT8gMDDA

If you are looking for help and just not sure where to start why not book a consultation to see how pelvic health Physiotherapy can help?
