Inner Pelvic Health

What is Inner Pelvic Health?

In my exercise teaching experience, I found not only that pelvic floor issues have become the norm following childbirth but the treatments are ineffective and in many cases harmful. Surgically implanting slings and mesh suspension systems, wearing pessary insertions, and injecting bulking agents more commonly used in facial plastic surgery, are some of the current choices offered by traditional medicine. As I began researching and discussing the issue more openly with my clients, I heard Kegel exercises were, if anything, found to be frustrating and seldom reaching beyond a superficial fix of bladder control. The less invasive yet initial option of “X number of Kegels per day” has failed to be effective on it’s own and could even be argued as detrimental to pelvic floor health.

Class description:

Inner Pelvic Health a movement-based workshop, held monthly at Movement in Action, which educates both men and women on pelvic floor maintenance and prevention of all-to-common ailments and complications of health pelvic functions due to life and aging. Also safe and beneficial for those suffering from incontinence, chronic pain, and prolapse in women and prostate issues for men. Participants will leave with new awareness and understanding of optimum pelvic function, along with concepts of everyday application to promote self-healing.

If you are actively managing pelvic floor dysfunction, private 1.5-hour consultations are available at $135. This includes intake, accessing goals, and learning basic movements and concepts that will help maintain and potentially increase the rate of healing damaged or inflamed pelvic tissues.

Following this initial appointment, you can then join into weekly small group classes online in the privacy of your own home at a $10 drop-in rate.

There is an ever-increasing demand for Pelvic Health programs that help manage pelvic functioning through education and lifestyle skills:

“If the United States population increases 24% by 2030 as projected by the United States Census Bureau, we predict the demand for care for pelvic floor disorders will increase by 35% between 2010 and 2030.”

An update on the current and future demand for care of pelvic floor disorders in the United States 

“The average age women start to notice pelvic floor disorders, which include prolapse as well as urinary and fecal incontinence, is 56; by 80, half of all women have one or more symptoms. One in ten end up in surgery – and associated costs are soaring as the population ages -from an estimated $66 billion a year in 2007 to a projected $83 billion in 2020.”
