Pelvic floor Treatment and Rehabilitation in London

When shall I start my Pelvic Floor Rehabilitation?

There is growing support in favour of beginning to exercise before the childbirth (ante natal). Your awareness of this muscle will facilitate the labour.
After childbirth (post natal) you have to wait at least six to eight weeks before starting any re-education or sports. It is very important to not start any abdominal re-education with a weak pelvic-floor because it would increase the stretch of the perineum and increase such symptoms as incontinence (see abdominal re-education section). After these six- eight weeks you may start your pelvic floor re-education whenever you fell ready for it.

If you gave birth a few years ago, did not do any rehabilitation and that you start feeling the consequences of it (incontinence, prolapse, lost of sexual sensation) no worries, it is never too late to start strengthening the perineum and find a normal micturition.

Pelvic floor rehabilitation is effective at all ages whether it is for young mothers, elderly as well as women without children but who suffer from those symptoms.

Why do I need Pelvic Floor Rehabilitation?

While giving birth is the most wonderful time in a women’s life, the nine months of pregnancy and the labour have a big impact on your pelvic-floor. The baby’s weight puts pressure on it, the increase of hormones (oestrogen and relaxin) and finally the childbirth will stretch the muscles.  The combination of these factors will lead to the loss of tonus and the muscles will not be able to play their role as before. This is unavoidable and can bring serious consequences if left untreated (incontinence, prolapsed womb, back pain, reduced sexual sensation). But although it is unavoidable, it is not irreversible. Pelvic-floor rehabilitation will allow you to regain the strength and the tonus of your muscles and therefore avoid suffering these complications in the future.
Pelvic floor is certainly one of the most, if not the most important muscle for a woman. It plays a very important role: it is the muscle holding the womb, the bladder, and its’ tonus allows continence by closing the sphincters. And finally, it is the base for a good back health. A stretched perineum will not be able to maintain all those functions and will as well as normal sexual sensation.

More information about pelvic floor rehabilitation

Pelvic floor rehabilitation: how can I strengthen my pelvic muscles?

Pelvic floor rehabilitation is the most effective pelvic physiotherapy technique to strengthen your pelvic floor muscles using as set of specific pelvic floor exercises and pelvic assessment. As many women don’t necessarily know how to trigger the contraction of these specific muscles, pelvic floor rehabilitation must first be taught and monitored by a pelvic floor physio specialist to be sure that they are done correctly and to avoid damaging any other muscles around this area.

Once you have understood and feel the correct contraction, you will be able to increase the intensity of these exercises and strengthen your muscles until your pelvic floor tone is back to normal.

How long does pelvic floor rehabilitation take?

Pelvic floor rehabilitation depends on the level of strength of your muscles and how damaged they can be. Our pelvic physio usually take as little as 4 weeks to months to treat your pelvic floor fully.

How to prepare for a pelvic floor assessment?

You don’t need to prepare anything for your consultation. No specific clothes are needed either. If you have any past or current treatments, or any other medical history that had an effect on your pelvic floor muscles, it’s always helpful to bring your previous exams to your session.

So the pelvic floor: what is it?

We often hear about pelvic floor exercises for women but do you really know what is the pelvic floor and why treating it is important in every stage of life.

What is the pelvic floor?

The pelvic floor is a combination of skin, muscles and connective tissue called fascia, all sitting within the pelvic and supporting pelvic organs. The pelvic floor sits like a hammock within our pelvis, attached to the pubic bones at the front, the coccyx bone at the back and the two ischial tuberosities on the right and the left where are sit bones.

Pelvic floor muscles consist of two separate layers

The first layer are the superficial muscles, which is more about squeeze muscle groups and includes the external anal sphincter at the back, the bulbo muscles at the front, and the two attaching side muscles.

The deeper layer sits inside the pelvis, attaching onto the pubic bones at the front, and is more a bowel lifting muscle groups.


What are the roles of the pelvic floor?

Continence

The main roles of the pelvic floor consist of continence and control of both the bladder and the bowel. It supports our organs including the bladder, the uterus and the rectum, from below to help prevent the pelvic organ prolapse and to hold organs in the best position in order achieve their optimal function.

Sensation during intercourse

The pelvic floor also helps with sensations during intercourse. Contracting your pelvic floor during intercourse will often lead to more sensations. However, if your pelvic floor is overactive or you cannot let go off your pelvic floor muscles, sometimes this can result in pain during intercourse.

Hold the pelvic in place

The pelvic floor also helps stabilise the pelvis. It supports pelvic girdle joints including the pubic symphysis joint at the front and the two sacroiliac joints at the back.
