Many people suffering from pelvic pains and imbalances will suffer in pain as long as they can and keep up with everyday life errands. It is all too common for people to persevere through pelvic pains without knowing they are suffering a problem with the pelvic. Problems with the pelvic floor can be undiagnosed for years as one survives on painkillers to numb the pain. We are glad to let you know that you do not need complicated medical treatment because several naturalistic approaches can effectively address issues of the perineal region.
What is perineal rehabilitation?
It is a special kind of physiotherapy that treats problems of the perineal region without medical prescription or intrusive procedures. The therapy focuses on muscles that form the pelvis floors and support organs like the colon, vagina, bladder, and uterus. In many cases, therapies that solve issues of this musculoskeletal system will help fix issues with the associated organs and nerves without requiring gym sessions. We aim to correct imbalances in the strength and tone of the pelvic floor muscles, as well as your alignment and posture.
Symptoms of the pelvic floor dysfunction
- A strong urge to urinate
- Pain in the hip, back, thigh, and pelvis during intercourse
- Pregnancy or post-pregnancy pain
- Interstitial cystitis
Who needs perineal rehabilitation near Montreal?
Pelvic floor therapy is the first of many therapies that strengthen the pelvic floor. It is an effective treatment for men and women with weak muscles, especially if they are older and have other coexisting issues like hormonal imbalances. Women may be more frequent candidates for treatment because of post-pregnancy effects like weak pelvic floors. The therapy is also highly effective for men recovering from prostate surgery and cannot control their bowel or bladder symptoms.
Failing to get prompt treatment will weaken the muscles over time and interfere with the sphincter’s functioning. Some women may experience a fall in their uterus, bladder, and rectum, which is the medical explanation for the term ‘prolapse.’
Perineal rehabilitation methods
The physiotherapist assesses the elasticity and strength of the muscles to form a proper training and breathing program. We will give you personalized exercise programs and identify abdominal muscles that need frequent restoration techniques. We will modify the treatment as you go through daily treatment until you reach complete recovery with minimal scar tissue or injuries. Specific treatment modalities include the following:
- Manual retraining – The treatment involves contracting the muscles holding the anus by applying pressure.
- Biofeedback – The treatment brings awareness to the vaginal and anal muscles to let us know of specific errors around the perineum and allow us to affect the correct change with proper muscle relaxation and contraction tools. An example is the physiotherapist may use electrodes along the anal area and abdomen to monitor the pelvic floor muscles and determine the best treatments.
Some people feel they can accelerate healing by increasing the treatment frequencies and intensity. Do not attempt to diagnose yourself or follow a random DIY solution because you will not know which exact exercises will tighten your muscles.
