The Lowdown on Pelvic Floor PT: Not Just Kegels, Ladies!

Hey there, active go-getters of the Pacific Northwest! Let's have a real talk about something often whispered but seldom shouted—pelvic floor health. Yeah, I know it’s not as glamorous as talking about perfecting your golf swing or nailing that yoga pose, but hear me out. Whether you're an expecting mom, a new mom, or someone dealing with the oh-so-taboo topic of incontinence, pelvic floor physical therapy (PT) is a game-changer.

Pelvic floor physical therapy is so much more kegels. We take an exercise forward approach and teach you how to squat, deadlift, overhead press, and do all your other gym exercises and daily activities while training the pelvic floor.

What's the Pelvic Floor, Anyway?

Think of the pelvic floor as the unsung hero of your lower torso. It's a layer of muscles that supports your uterus, bladder, small intestine, and rectum. When those muscles are out of whack, well, let's just say things can go south—literally.

The Power of PT for Pregnancy and Beyond

Moms-to-be, we've got your back—and your belly. Pregnancy and childbirth can be hard on your pelvic floor. Ever heard of “Mommy Tummy”? That could be Diastasis Recti, a condition we tackle here at HIDEF. Pre-natal pelvic floor PT helps you prepare for labor and keeps those muscles in tip-top shape. But don't think it’s over once the stork has visited! Postpartum PT is crucial to get everything back where it should be.

Incontinence: Time to Stop the Leak

Hey, accidents happen—to a lot of us. You laugh, you sneeze, you leak. It’s uncomfortable, it’s annoying, but it’s treatable. We're talking manual therapies and targeted exercises that go beyond your grandma's Kegels. Seriously, there's so much more to pelvic floor health than clench and release.

Let's Get Real About Women’s Health

And we're not just talking about moms here. Pelvic pain, menstrual issues, and sexual dysfunction can all trace back to the pelvic floor. It’s a whole universe down there that, frankly, more women should explore with qualified PTs. And at HIDEF, we've got some of the best.

Why HIDEF is the Way to Go
