Pelvic physiotherapy is intended for anyone with pain in the pelvic area (hip, groin, buttocks and lower back). These problems are common, especially in women. Pregnant women and mothers experience this pain more often, but everyone can suffer from it. The treatment consists of different mobilization techniques and exercises to improve stability and reduce pain. For pregnancy related pelvic pain we tend to use Rost Therapy and different stabilizing exercises; for post partum recovery -to treat unwanted pregnancy and childbirth consequences like urinary incontinence and diastasis recti- we use different techniques, including the hypopressive method.
Pelvic physiotherapy is an effective treatment for:
- Specific pelvic complaints: pelvic pain, pelvic instability, urinary incontinence.
- Pregnancy-related complaints including diastasis recti (abdominal separation under influence of stretching and pregnancy hormones) and pelvic organ prolapse.
- Everyday issues related to pregnancy and childbirth.
- Low back pain (pain, stiffness, radiating pain and hernia)
- Groin hernia
- Hip disorders (leading to complaints in the hip, groin, thigh and upper leg)
- Combined and complicated complaints of the lower body (low back, pelvis, hip, knee, ankle and foot)
- Core weakness. The core muscles are all muscles in the centre of the body. The core consists of no less than 29 muscles, subdivided into the tummy (abdominal) muscles (straight, oblique and deep), the long and deep back muscles and the big and small muscles of the pelvis and hip. They form, as it were, the body's corset. With core weakness comes different problems.
