  • Incontinence – fecal/ urinary
  • Hernia prevention
  • when an athlete tries so hard to perform, such as pressing weight, doing crunches, lifting, etc., many times you forget to breath, or you hold your breath, push down on your abdomen and pelvic floor, do maneuvers called "Valsalva". You increase your risk of getting herniations, urinary or fecal leakage. Each time you do it wrong, you are stressing the pelvic floor, groin, or abdomen the wrong way. Sooner or later, when you really need to perform at the top of your game, you may end up getting a hernia, or start leaking instead.
  • It's very important to learn from the outset how to breath, how to COORDINATE your breathing to move your body correctly.
  • You need to know HOW to CORRECTLY recruit your pelvic floor to further support your activities.
  • Pelvic Pain
  • Prolonged sitting on a small bike seat for prolonged bike riding may compress your pudendal nerve, causing pain in the pelvic floor and genitals.
  • Prolonged flexion (bending) of your hips or back can compress blood flow into your abdominal area, causing organ disfunctions, such as constipation, diarrhea, irritable bowels
  • The spinal nerves and muscles can be compressed, causing abnormal neuropathy, poor circulation to the pelvic floor and abdomen.
  • Sacro-iliac pain and mobility
  • Lumbsacral injuries
  • Hip/ groin pain
  • Prolonged running, squatting, climbing activities may over stretch your legs and inner thigh muscles, overworking your spinal muscles and spinal segments, sacral illiac joints, or over work your hip joints. The pubic symphysis can also be stress and over stretched causing pain.
  • Proper bracing, strengthening, stabilization exercise will help to control and prevent these types of problems.
  • If you experience pain, or see a trend of having pain and discomfort in the abdomen, pelvis, or hip areas, leaking of urine or fecal matters, inflamation or irritation of the genitals after playing sports,
  • Call us for consultation. We can determine if it is musculoskeletal and movement related and provide treatment interventions.
