A large number of women suffer from pelvic floor dysfunctions. It is estimated that pelvic floor disorders affect about 10% of women ages 20 to 39 and 27% of women ages 40 to 59.
These dysfunctions can range from Incontinence, Pelvic Floor weakness, Diastasis Recti, Bowel Dysfunctions, Lower Back Pain, Hip Pain and Sexual Dysfunctions.
Most women assume that they will have to ‘Live with it’ and that ‘It is normal to have these symptoms’. While it is common to develop dysfunctions in the pelvic region, it is not something you need to live with! Restrictions or imbalance in your Pelvic Floor can cause these uncomfortable symptoms and it only gets worse if you don’t get it treated.
Join us at this free event to learn about the anatomy of your Pelvic Floor, the dysfunctions that can happen and how to take care of your pelvic floor prior to and after childbirth. We have invited three experts who have several years of experience treating conditions associated with Pelvic Floor.
