Viewing and Treating Pelvic Floor Health Through a Global Lens, presented by Julie Hammond
Treating pelvic floor/ diaphragm dysfunction should be a multidisciplinary approach with collaboration between health professionals. It involves exercise but not just strengthening exercises, awareness, proprioception, interoception, relaxation. There is always an emotional component that goes with pelvic diaphragm dysfunction that also needs to be addressed. The most common form of incontinence is stress urinary incontinence, which is involuntary loss of urine due to increased pressure from coughing, sneezing or exercise. Pelvic diaphragm dysfunction is often attributed to weakness of the pelvic diaphragm, but this isn’t always the case, there can be weakness or underactivity, there can also be muscle tightness and spasm and overactivity, or it could be due to pelvic dyssynergia where the muscles in the pelvic diaphragm lose coordination.
In this presentation I will explain the beautiful anatomy of the pelvic diaphragm before looking more globally at the bigger picture. A pelvic diaphragm dysfunction isn’t just a pelvic diaphragm problem and often we need to look above and below to give support and take away compression. By understanding your pelvis and its starting point you can then make changes to help strengthen your pelvic diaphragm or learn how to relax it. The workshop will consist of theory and practical applications to fully integrate the information and research that will be discussed.
This workshop is for manual and movement therapists as well as anybody who has an interest in understanding this amazing anatomy.
