Self Stretching the Pelvic Floor

Self Stretching the Pelvic Floor


Whilst manual therapy performed by a skilled therapist is an invaluable tool for assessing and treating pelvic floor dysfunction, our patients can become intimidated by the thought of incorporating specific stretches to the pelvic floor, be it manually or with dilators.

This product will look at all aspects of pelvic floor and perineal stretching, from breathing, mindful meditation and visualization techniques to coordinate and relax the pelvic floor muscles, through external and internal manual techniques, along with the appropriate use of dilators.

Dilators are a valuable part of many home programs, but their use can be intimidating for many patients, especially without a therapist there to guide them. These forms, customizable with your clinic’s logo, can be a helpful tool to remind your patient how and when to use these helpful tools, and to empower them to complete their home programs comfortably and effectively.

Their anxiety and tension over this aspect of their home program can end up having the opposite effect that we want to achieve – a relaxed and coordinated pelvic floor!
