Women’s Health with Becca Boeing from Orthopaedic Rehab Specialists

What is pelvic floor/women’s health PT?

Your pelvic floor are the muscles that make up the bottom of your pelvis and are responsible for supporting your organs (bladder, bowels, uterus in women). Male and female have a pelvic floor.

Insufficient muscle contractions or spasms of the pelvic floor can lead to several things.
⁃       Fecal and urinary incontinence
⁃       Constipation
⁃       Pain with intercourse
⁃       Chronic low back pain
⁃       Deep hip pain
⁃       Prolapse
⁃       Heavy menstrual cycle

Pelvic floor dysfunction can stem from pregnancy, labor/postpartum (no matter how many years), abdominal surgery OR simply weakness and/or lack of coordination.

This does NOT mean kegals are the answer!!!

As parents, we can all agree that watching our kids grow and change is one of the greatest feelings you can ever experience. The worry and anxiety of watching them struggle through milestones quickly dissolves when you see them conquer the challenge. As they grow they become riskier and the achievements greater.

When children enter into sports, we start thinking about the potential for those injuries. Injuries can be scary, worrisome, and something we have to expect will happen. However, we can actively reduce their risk. Similar to when our babies made those first moves to roll over, crawl and walk. This can be done without hovering over them, preventing the freedom they need and desire to excel.

There are several very easy daily steps that can be taken to significantly reduce the risk of injury for your children within sports. Simple, but also often the most challenging: Water and food! We all know of the importance of water to survive but it’s also an essential part of being able to perform adequately, let alone are top level. It’s hard to determine the total number of sports injuries that are caused from dehydration but It is estimated that the highest 40% of all injuries could be prevented just from properly hydrating.

Food: It’s always a surprise the limited knowledge athletes have in regards to what they are eating and how much they should consume. Educating athletes on a simple nutrition plan helps give them the necessary building blocks to repair muscle tissue as well as keeping them moving.

Educating your children on the importance of movement, hydration and nutrition is the best way to keep them off the bench and on the field, injury free. In the many years I’ve been a strength & conditioning coach and athletic trainer, the most successful athletes are the ones who are aware of these simple things.
