Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy in Spain
Do you suffer from leaking stool or urine without wanting to? Feeling pain in your lower back with no other cause, do you have trouble having sex or is moving painful now that you are pregnant? Whatever complaints you have in and around your pelvis: a pelvic floor physiotherapist can help you. This applies to men, women and children.
Pelvic physiotherapy focuses on people with problems in and around the pelvis, lower back, abdomen and pelvic floor, a few examples:
- Pain in the pelvis, lower back and abdomen region
- Urinary complaints, incontinence or painful urination
- Stool complaints, fecal incontinence, rectal pain, constipation
- Prolapse complaints
- Complaints during and after your pregnancy
- Pain or discomfort during and after sex
- Poop and stool problems with children
Many complaints can be remedied, but shame often makes it difficult for people to approach a healthcare provider with these complaints. When they get over that shame, life turns out to be much more pleasant again. The pelvic physiotherapist helps you learn to recognize, train and relax the muscles around the pelvis. You will work on breathing, relaxation, and lengthening and strengthening techniques to train the muscles to function correctly. Special equipment can be used for this. The pelvic physiotherapist advises on posture, load, toilet behaviour, drinking and eating behavior and supporting aids such as a pelvic belt.
Only a pelvic physiotherapist is authorized and expert to conduct an internal examination. Pelvic physiotherapy is a specialization and our therapist is registered with the Dutch professional association for physiotherapy and Pelvic Physiotherapy. These registrations require up to date schooling, continuing development and working experience in the field of her expertise.
