Description


From pelvic pain to incontinence, sciatica to scoliosis, prolapse to painful intercourse, the pelvic floor is a key player in recovery. Weakness and tension in the muscles of the pelvic region are often overlooked as the culprits of many debilitating conditions. And, even when the pelvic floor is deemed responsible for ailments, rehabilitation is often bypassed for surgery or medication. But, there is an active means of rehabilitating and managing conditions stemming from the pelvic region with a physical therapist's guidance. This book aims to provide pelvic floor exercises and relaxation techniques that can assist in overcoming the leakage and overly frequent trips to the restroom associated with incontinence, and the pain and inability to fully empty the bladder due to excessive pelvic floor muscle tension. The exercises and other self help tips can also help strengthen the pelvic floor muscles during and after pregnancy, and after child birth The techniques aim to help people learn about and gain control of the pelvic floor and remedy some of the causes of the problems. This guidance has truly restored patients' abilities to "live". Truly a book written for all audiences with case "stories" and education segments ranging from broad overviews to minute details, 'Get the Pelvic Floor Back in Action' speaks to patients, clinicians, and persons interested in minimizing contracting pelvic conditions. The pelvic region is often embarrassing to speak of or is overlooked. It is time to highlight the pelvic region to truly help those with pelvic conditions get back in action
