In this free presentation, you will be introduced to the pelvic floor muscles - you know the muscles in your pelvis you never heard of...? Indeed, most people learn about their pelvic floor once they start experiencing symptoms such as bladder or bowel control issues, pelvic pain, overactive bladder, prolapse, pain with sex and so on. Contrary to the popular belief, pelvic floor problems do not only affect elders or women after childbirth, but individuals from any gender and any age.
The good news is: Pelvic Health Physiotherapy "is a thing", and can help! In this workshop, we will review the anatomy and roles of the pelvic floor, and touch about the main symptoms that can occur with pelvic floor dysfunctions. We will then explain the role of Pelvic Health Physiotherapy in the assessment and treatment of Pelvic Floor Disorders, and give you some recommendations about how you can maintain an A1 pelvic health through your life.
WHO IS THIS FOR? Anyone - male or female of any age - who is interested in being introduced to basic Pelvic Health.
