Pelvic floor training for women now
Although the human pelvic floor is not visible from the outside, its physiological function is of central importance for the entire body. The horizontally arranged layer of musculature and connective tissue delimits the abdominal cavity with its organs downwards and gives them support. Both the contraction and relaxation of the pelvic floor are significantly important for urination, defecation, sexual function and, above all, the posture of every person. In addition, the pelvic floor must reflexively counteract tension, for example when sneezing, laughing, coughing or lifting heavy loads, in order to maintain the built-up pressure in the abdominal cavity.
Injuries, incorrect or excessive strain, for example due to operations, the high pressure of pregnancy, childbirth or menopause, can lead to a loss of tension in this layer and thus to stress incontinence. But a lot of stress can also cause the pelvic floor muscles to tense up and therefore no longer function properly. Another reason for considerable impairment can be intense physical strain, for example in athletes. The ability to relax the pelvic floor is often forgotten.
From Monday 10.01.2022, regular pelvic floor classes will take place at the Chirohouse. Our sports therapist Lucie Boysen will create both theoretical and practical understanding for this small but central muscle group in small groups. The training will include awareness and posture training, as well as strength and flexibility training. It is ideal as preparation for childbirth, for relaxation and regeneration in the postpartum period or as a gentle start for returning to athletic training.
Simply register by email(firstname.lastname@example.org) or phone (030-62975155) and take your training to the next level.
We look forward to seeing you!
