Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction (SPD)

2/19/2021
Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction (SPD) happens when the ligaments that keep your pubic bone and pelvis stable become overstretched and no longer stabilize your pelvis. Essentially, a structure that is designed to move very little begins to move a lot, and it can be very painful and difficult to move with ease. SPD is a condition that sometimes arises during pregnancy, though it can also first occur during labor and birth or in the postpartum period. Pelvic girdle pain in general is quite common...

Sacroiliac (SI) Joint Pain

Sacroiliac (SI) joint dysfunction can sometimes lead to lumbar spine and leg pain. The SI joint is located between the sacrum and and ilium bones in the pelvis, connecting the spine to the hips. These bones help support and align the entire body. Although the medical field believes that the SI joint is responsible for those suffering from low back pain, it is often a difficult diagnostic to make.

How to Strengthen Your Core

2/19/2021
Core exercises and workouts help strengthen the muscles in your abdomen, back, and your pelvic floor. In many cases, working out core muscles may aid in your ability to do physical activities, restore damaged muscle groups, and aid in load and weight lifting. However, there are many fitness gurus and exercise routines that encourage unhelpful and potentially damaging core exercises. One of the scenarios I run into many times with my clients is that they are encouraged to build core strength...

Your pelvis is vital to supporting your spine and your entire body. At times, the pelvic floor may become overactive or hypertonic. When this happens, the muscles may be overly tight or tense when they should be relaxed. learning to relax and release the correct muscles in your pelvic floor (contracting the muscles as shortly as you would by bulging your bicep – or a long contraction as you would stretching out the bicep). If you have an overactive pelvic floor, you may experience symptoms...

Pelvic Floor Exercise

2/19/2021
Pelvic floor exercise routines are often very diverse in information regarding the styles and methods you should pursue when seeking to build pelvic floor strength. Some exercise experts will advise pelvic floor muscle training and engagement that actively contracts both your core and your pelvic floor. Their reasoning may seem valid, as we commonly agree that engaging certain muscle groups can help strengthen them, as they contract and release. However, I believe that there is a lot to be...

Diastasis Recti Hernia

Diastasis recti is a common condition that is often mistaken or confused with a hernia. However, the two conditions are unique and require a variety of different treatments.

Types of Hernia

Abdominal hernias occur when an organ or other piece of tissue pushes through a weak spot in the abdominal wall. The sac or bulge that protrudes from the weak spot may contain either a part of the intestine or a piece of the fatty lining of the colon (called the omentum). This typically occurs with hernias located in the abdominal wall or in the groin. If the hernia occurs in the diaphragm, the muscle that separates the chest from the abdomen, the upper part of the stomach may penetrate the...

Hernias are relatively common and can affect many men, women, and children at any time in their life. Hernias may arise due to a variety of circumstances.

Postpartum Yoga

2/19/2021
Before you begin your exercise routine, it is important that you have received medical clearance by your doctor to exercise, practice patience with yourself and your body, and rest, lots of rest! I recommend waiting at least 8 weeks before beginning any strenuous exercises. After your recovery, yoga can be a relaxing and beneficial way to begin introducing exercise back into your daily regimen. Yoga can aid in healing your abdominal muscles, building pelvic floor and core strength, improve...

Postpartum Physical Therapy

Postpartum physical therapy can be a great way to restore function and strength in your core and pelvic floor muscles. Giving birth places a strain on your body and it is no surprise that many postpartum people experience pelvic pain and discomfort for weeks to months after delivery. Even after the typical 8 week recovery time, many women may require more time or a pelvic floor workout plan to help get them back on their feet, especially women who delivered via C-section. Although you may...

Postpartum Workout Plan

Giving birth takes a toll on your body – both physically and emotionally.

It is common for many women to experience postpartum complications like a prolapse. A prolapse happens when a part of your body (intestines or tissues) bulges or "falls out" into either the rectum or vagina due to weakened muscles structures and tissues.

Uterine Prolapse

A uterine prolapse occurs when the pelvic floor becomes weakened and the surrounding tissues, muscles, and ligaments are unable to provide proper support to the uterus. This may lead to the uterus descending down or into the vagina. In more severe cases, the uterus may protrude out of the vaginal opening. Although uncommon, some complications may arise if left untreated. An ulceration of exposed tissues or additional prolapses may occur: rectal or bladder. However, there are many different...

How Common is a Prolapse After a Hysterectomy?

The uterus is one of the most important support structures in the pelvic floor. It provides support for the vagina and can help prevent conditions like vaginal prolapse or bladder prolapse. A hysterectomy removes the uterus, thus, removing additional vaginal support. In 2008 and 2014, two studies were conducted to determine whether or not the risk of prolapse developing increased once the uterus was removed. Both studies concluded that the possibility of developing vaginal prolapse 1 to 2...
