Complex pelvic floor muscle therapy is a modern physiotherapy treatment complying with international standards of medical practice. After taking a comprehensive case history and a thorough physiotherapeutic examination of the locomotor organ and the pelvic floor muscles, we develop a treatment plan which is tailored to the individual needs of each patient and the kind of disorder she suffers from.
Aside from personalized muscle training and necessary manual techniques, our patient will learn how to take proper care of her intimate health. Inefficient pelvic floor muscles alone are seldom responsible for the occurrence of the above mentioned conditions. That is the reason why the focus of our urogynecologic rehabilitation is on the patient’s whole body, although the pelvic floor muscle therapy remains its core. An effective recovery process requires a personalized selection of therapeutic techniques originating from physiotherapeutic methods, e.g., manual and trigger point therapy or kinesiotaping. According to the recent guidelines, physiotherapeutic management is recommended as “first-line” treatment for the above dysfunctions. Physiotherapy is also part of comprehensive health care provided by our Clinic interdisciplinary therapeutic team whose experience and expertise ensure precise diagnosis and specialist consultations at every stage of therapeutic management.
It gives insight into the function of pelvic floor muscles to both the examiner and the patient. Watching real-time images, the patient can quickly learn how to tighten and relax her pelvic floor muscles effectively. A repeated examination performed after a period of self-guided exercise allows ongoing progress monitoring, facilitates prompt modification of the training and accelerates the entire therapy.
The method is recommended because it facilitates and accelerates the therapy, particularly in patients with symptoms of weakened pelvic floor muscles.
Physiotherapeutic methods have proved effective and beneficial for pain relief and the restoration of unrestricted mobility allowing a woman to enjoy her pregnancy and maternity.
The most frequently occurring postpartum problems include:
- mobility affecting pelvic pain syndromes, radiating pain from and to the pelvis, pubic symphysis diastasis or resembling conditions
- sciatica or a clinical picture resembling it, piriform muscle syndrome
- diastasis recti (separation of straight abdominal muscles) with abdominal muscle flaccidity
- acute pain syndromes (sudden onset of pain) associated with the locomotor system which occurred during pregnancy
Other postnatal complaints:
- pelvic stability disorders
- chronic pelvic pain
- pubic symphysis diastasis
- coccyx pain, problems with sitting and raising to the standing position
- evaluation of the abdominal rectus diastasis and the function of the neighboring structures
- manual tissue mobilization – closure of the diastasis using physiotherapeutic techniques
- teaching deep core stabilizing muscle activation: transverse abdominal muscle and pelvic floor muscles
- set of custom-designed exercises
- diastasis “taping” – kinesiotaping
The massage is performed in a lying position.
The massage therapy session lasts 45 minutes.
Contraindications for performing the massage:
- 1st trimester of pregnancy
- pathological pregnancy
- vascular, plasma-related and platelet-related hemorrhagic diathesis (bleeding tendency), arterial hypertension, heart diseases,
- gestational diabetes
- hyper- and hypoactivity of the thyroid and parathyroid glands
The rehabilitation program includes activation of appropriate abdominal and pelvic structures, fascial training, adhesion prevention, mobilization of post-operative scars and patient education.
We take care of:
- reeducation of pelvic floor muscles before and after reconstructive procedures for pelvic organ prolapse and urinary incontinence
- rehabilitation after gynecologic procedures and operations
