Chiropractors often get asked about pelvic floor dysfunction and how it can affect the lumbar spine. In this blog post, we’ll discuss what pelvic floor dysfunction is, its potential causes, and how chiropractic care can help. Although there is still much unknown about this condition, by understanding more about it we can better manage our patients’ symptoms and improve their quality of life.
As a general rule, treatment for pelvic floor dysfunction may involve laser therapy, chiropractic adjustments, and physiotherapy. These therapies aim to alleviate symptoms and improve overall pelvic health.
What is pelvic floor dysfunction and how does it affect the lumbar spine specifically?
As a Chiropractor, something I often deal with is Pelvic Floor Dysfunction – commonly referred to as PFD. This condition can affect the lumbar spine specifically by causing musculoskeletal imbalances and changes in joint biomechanics. Individuals struggling with pelvic floor dysfunction may experience pain or discomfort in their back caused by displaced or weakened muscles surrounding the affected area. Chiropractic treatment is a fantastic option for those who do not wish to pursue surgical or invasive treatments, as it provides a non-invasive, safe and effective way to regain control of bodily functions while also avoiding any further injury. Chiropractic care is tailored to each individual with careful attention paid to the movement and alignment of their lumbar spine, allowing us to target each disturbed area with accuracy and precision. Ultimately, chiropractic care is an excellent solution for treating pelvic floor dysfunction most effectively and without medical claims.
How can chiropractic care help alleviate symptoms of pelvic floor dysfunction without medication or surgery?
Chiropractic care is an excellent non-invasive, non-surgical way to help manage symptoms of pelvic floor dysfunction. It focuses on the entire body’s structure and alignment in order to provide relief from pain and discomfort. Chiropractic treatment manipulates the lumbar spine to restore joint movement and alignment, allowing corrections to occur naturally through gentle spinal adjustments that promote healing over time. Chiropractors can also rehabilitate muscles, ligaments, and tendons around the pelvic floor in order to reduce discomfort and improve function. With the right combination of adjustments, exercises and other lifestyle modifications, chiropractic treatments can provide relief without medication or surgery.
What are some specific exercises and stretches that can help relieve pelvic floor dysfunction symptoms at home?
As a Chiropractor, my top recommendation for alleviating pelvic floor dysfunction symptoms is to perform specific exercises and stretches at home. With regular practice, patients can make meaningful progress towards reducing their pain and stabilizing the area without needing surgery or any invasive medical treatments. While performing these exercises and stretches, it is important that the patient also focuses on their posture and lumbar stability as well. After all, having a strong lumbar provides much-needed support to the entire skeletal system and particularly helps alleviate pelvic pain. That’s why I only recommend non-surgical, non-invasive treatments with proper chiropractic care – enabling each individual to take control of their own recovery process while on the road to better health.
When should you see a doctor for further evaluation and treatment of pelvic floor dysfunction symptoms?
Chiropractic treatment can be of huge benefit to those suffering from pelvic floor dysfunction. Chiropractic helps to reduce the symptoms of pelvic floor dysfunction and is often preferred due to it being non-surgical and non-invasive, meaning there is much less risk involved. Chiropractors can help by realigning the lumbar area, resulting in improved function of this core area. Chiropractic’s natural form of care also helps create a stable foundation that is necessary for other treatments including rehabilitation therapy. However, if you are experiencing pelvic floor dysfunction symptoms such as deep pain or urinary urgency despite engaging in chiropractic treatment, it is best to see a doctor who specializes in this type of care for further evaluation and treatment.
If you’re struggling with pelvic floor dysfunction, there is hope. You don’t have to suffer through the pain and discomfort any longer. Chiropractic care can relieve symptoms without medication or surgery and help you take control of your health. There are also specific exercises and stretches that you can do at home to further alleviate symptoms.
