Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy in Spain
Do you have problems controlling your bowel or bladder? Is moving painful now that you are pregnant? Or are you experiencing discomfort during intercourse? Whatever symptoms you have in and around the pelvis, a pelvic floor physiotherapist can often help you assess and treat dysfunctions in the pelvic area and lower abdomen. This applies to men, women, and children.
Many conditions can be remedied or managed, but shame often makes it difficult for people to approach a healthcare provider with their symptoms. Once they overcome the shame, life turns out to be much more pleasant again. The pelvic physiotherapist can help you recognize, train, and relax the muscles around the pelvis. You will work on breathing, relaxation, lengthening, and strengthening techniques to train your muscles to function properly. Special equipment can be used for this. The pelvic physiotherapist advises on posture, load, toilet behavior, drinking and eating habits, and supporting aids such as a pelvic belt.
Patients can also contact the pelvic physiotherapist for complaints and questions related to sexual health. Only a pelvic physiotherapist is authorized and experienced to conduct an internal examination.
