Pelvic Health Physiotherapy in Pregnancy and Beyond By:

Jennifer Hunter BKin, BScPT

Did you know that over 70% of women experience pelvic floor complications as a result of childbirth, and about 10% of Canadians experience some form of incontinence? While this remains a taboo subject for many Canadians, pelvic floor physiotherapy is an effective, evidence-based treatment for pelvic pain and incontinence. The pelvic floor is a group of muscles that attach to the front, back, and sides of the pelvic bone and sacrum; and assist with bladder, bowel and sexual function. They also have a very significant contribution in keeping our core strong and our backs healthy. However, many of us are unaware that these muscles exist and in turn, do very little to keep them healthy and use them appropriately. Problems in your pelvic floor can happen when these muscles are either too tight or too weak. This can lead to issues including pelvic pain, incontinence, constipation, and difficulties with sexual intercourse. These symptoms are most commonly seen in women before and/or after pregnancy, and as we age. Many women feel that it is normal to experience these issues, and often just “grin and bear it.” It is not normal to leak when you sneeze, laugh, or cough It is not normal to have pain with intercourse It is not normal to feel pressure, heaviness, or pain in your pelvic region Physiotherapists with specialized training in pelvic floor rehabilitation are the first line of defence to help prevent and treat these issues. They are highly trained, sensitive professionals who will discuss all aspects of assessment and treatment with you thoroughly before proceeding. During your initial examination, your therapist will take a full medical history and discuss your current issues. They will perform an assessment of the joints and muscles in the area. This may also include an internal exam to identify the affected tissues that may be contributing to the issue. After this, they will develop a plan of action to specifically address and treat your condition. This may include: Manual (hands-on) therapy not only to the pelvic muscles but to nearby joints and muscles including the abdomen, trunk, back and hips Connective tissue manipulation Scar tissue mobilization Myofascial release Ongoing and inclusive education, including self-care tips Relaxation and breathing training Are you thinking about having a baby, or are currently pregnant? A consultation with a pelvic floor therapist can help lead you in the right direction to keep healthy and pain free during and after your pregnancy.

I will be offering SUP Lessons in Oakville starting June 7, 2017.  Details are on my website www.jfitathletics.com .  We will launch out of the Oakville Yatch Club, Kids that are able to swim are welcome.  Lessons focus on fun and being on the water.  Proper paddle stock and some fitness warmups are added, but the focus is all about the water, how to turn, balance, safe getting on/off.

I am WPA certified.  What this means is I have water safety skills for rescue, first aid as well as skills to teach SUP skills and harbour/water rules of the waterway.  I am an ex sailor where I learned about water rules/safety, have my inner harbor boat license so I am capable of driving the rescue boats.

Please let me know if you are interested as I have a limited number of boards.  All equipment is provided.

I love using kettle bells, especially for moms, kettle bells work.  They fit with our lifestyle, compact, versatile, inexpensive and efficient.  I do go to a gym 1x a week, but the rest of the days I train with kettle bells in my house or yard.  Below I have added 3 videos.   You can perform these 3 exercises in a row, rest and repeat 2-3x to get a great full body, efficient mom kettle bell workout.

 

Make sure you breath into you bells not your chest on the breathing squat.  With the kettle bell swing, my abs and back are tight during this exercise, and I squeeze my gluts to get to the tall stand position.
