The intricate web of muscles, ligaments, and tissues that make up the pelvic floor is vital to a woman’s health and well-being. Similarly, the integrity of the abdominal muscles plays a pivotal role in core strength and overall posture. At the Women’s Health Group, led by Dr. Awad, we recognize the profound impact that disorders related to these areas can have on a woman’s quality of life. Hence, we offer specialized physical therapy sessions to address pelvic floor disorders and abdominal separation, ensuring a holistic approach to recovery and restoration.




Understanding Pelvic Floor Disorders

The pelvic floor is a complex structure responsible for supporting the bladder, uterus, and rectum. Disorders can manifest as pain, discomfort, or dysfunction in holding urine or feces. These issues may arise due to childbirth, surgery, age, or other factors.

The Relevance of Addressing Abdominal Separation (Diastasis Recti)

This condition is characterized by a widening gap between the left and right abdominal muscles. While often associated with pregnancy, it can affect anyone, including newborns and men. Addressing it is crucial not only for aesthetic reasons but also for functional ones.

Physical Therapy: The Way Forward

Individualized Assessment

Before initiating therapy, a thorough assessment determines the extent of the disorder and the specific needs of the patient.

Biofeedback Therapy

This technique uses electronic monitoring to convey information about physiological processes, assisting patients in understanding and managing their pelvic floor contractions.

Tailored Exercise Regimens

Based on the assessment, exercises are curated to target affected muscles without adding undue strain.

Benefits of Physical Therapy

Regained Control

By strengthening the pelvic muscles, many women regain control over their bladder and bowel functions.

Reduced Pain

Targeted exercises can alleviate pain associated with these disorders.

Enhanced Core Strength

Addressing abdominal separation boosts core strength, improving posture and reducing back pain.

The Role of Breathing

Breathing plays a crucial role in pelvic floor therapy. Proper inhalation and exhalation techniques can enhance muscle contractions and relaxation, amplifying the benefits of the exercises.

Preventive Care and Education

It's not just about treating existing conditions; it's about preventing them. Our sessions educate women on practices to minimize the risk of pelvic floor disorders and abdominal separation.

Emotional and Psychological Impacts

Physical manifestations often intertwine with emotional repercussions. The inability to control bodily functions or changes in one's physical appearance can lead to feelings of embarrassment, frustration, or lowered self-esteem. We approach treatment holistically, understanding and addressing these psychological components.

Post-Therapy Life

The journey doesn't end with therapy. We equip our patients with knowledge and exercises to maintain their strengthened muscles, ensuring sustained benefits and enhanced quality of life.
