Working with a Kinesiologist
You’ll work one-on-one with a Professional Kinesiologist with specialized education in treating and training women with pelvic & floor core dysfunction and low back pain. You will experience hands-on care that is crafted around your individual needs.
Pelvic floor issues tend to be complex, and can be related to the functioning of other parts of your body, such as your feet, hips, trunk or shoulders and even to your habits and lifestyle. To be successful in treatment & training, all the related issues need to be addressed. This means we will be looking at the function of your deep core muscle system (pelvic floor, transversus abdominus, diaphragm and multifidus), the alignment of your whole body, the biomechanics of your everyday activities, and lifestyle factors .
Treatment and Training Plan
Your problems and goals will be established, and treatment/training plan then constructed to suit your needs. A session may include muscle activation techniques, neuromuscular release, hypopressive exercises, pelvic floor muscle training, k-taping therapy, rehabilitative & corrective exercises, movement re-training or any combination of these as you progress through your treatment & training program.
Follow up Treatment/Training sessions are generally weekly and one hour in length. Clients typically see improvement in as little as 2 to 4 sessions, and get results in 8 to 24 sessions; progress usually depends on the severity and duration of your symptoms, and your own adherence to your treatment and training plan.
