Why? Because, I will most likely pee my pants!
I’m sharing this bit of information for a few reasons. First of all, it sucks! It has been going on for quite a while, and… I only gave birth to one kid! Second of all, I KNOW for a fact, that many other women have this same issue, (they just don’t share it with the world;), and lastly…I think I may have an answer in resolving my “inherited” condition/issue!
The Pelvic Floor
Yesterday, I had the privilege to join a live webcast of an NKT Level II (Neurokinetic Therapy), study group. The topic was Pelvic floor dysfunction. I had no idea that so many conditions could be associated with a PV (pelvic floor dysfunction)!
Conditions commonly associated with pelvic floor dysfunction:
-Urinary Incontinence, and/or stress incontinence (hmmm…)
-Recurrent Urinary Tract Infections
-Activity specific problems (squatting, climbing, gait related issues)
-Chronic pain conditions such as vulvodynia, prostatodynia, and prudendal neuralgia
-Chronic SI (Sacroiliac) joint pain
-Pain at the tailbone, with or without known injury
Pelvic Floor Dysfunction
The pelvic floor can become inhibited (weak), after childbirth, chronic constipation, or trauma. Facilitation (strong and possibly compensation) of the Pelvic floor can also occur for various reasons.
So now what?
Get assessed by a skilled/advanced NKT practitioner, and see if your Pelvic Floor is over or under active. This could solve an annoying or even painful condition that you have been dealing with for years!
