Pelvic floor tightness can lead to conditions such as incontinence and painful sex. Many women have found relief from these self-myofascial release techniques, especially women who have experienced a Birthing Injury. The causes of pain after giving birth can vary from spasms, scar tissue, damaged nerves, restricted fascia and the list goes on. These exercises will show you how to break up the soft tissue and relieve restriction and pressure in key muscles surrounding the pelvis region.
If you try these exercises for two to three weeks and do not find relief, please consider seeking out guidance from a professional. Your condition could be more serious and could require intervention from a trained, licensed medical professional. At OptimaLiving Therapy & Pelvic Health Center, our occupational therapists have specialty training in Pelvic Floor Therapy, a conservative and effective way to treat difficulties that arise due to impaired relaxation, coordination, strength, or injury of the pelvic floor muscles and the surrounding soft tissue, joints and organs.
