Today we speak to Dr. Becky Allen about Pelvic Floor Health. Listen in to learn why it’s never too late to work on your pelvic floor, the benefits you can gain by doing so, and more! Dr. Becky is located in the Dallas Fort Worth area and impacts moms of all ages with her practice. We love her approach to pelvic floor therapy because Dr. Becky focuses on the whole woman, not just a dysfunction or injury.
New to pelvic floor therapy? Pelvic floor therapy for pregnancy can help manage pain, train muscles for birth, and keep from incontinence. After birth, this therapy can help reactivate, restore, and retrain muscles which are essential for everyday comfort like bowel and bladder control, pain free intercourse and more.
What We Covered:
- It’s never too late for Pelvic Floor Therapy. You can still benefit from therapy again later in life.
- If you’ve recently delivered, this time can have the biggest impact.
- Yes, this therapy can restore functions to prevent or remedy incontinence.
- Also helps improve abdominal strength and fitness.
- Your frequent bathroom trips are not normal and can be the sign of a weak pelvic floor.
- To get started, look up a therapist in your area and book an assessment.
- Focusing on kegels is old school. Your muscles might be too tight and practicing kegels can intensify your issues.
- Your pelvic floor is a reactive muscle. It should know when and how to work without thinking about it. Sometimes our muscles are out of sync and don’t fire off at the right time.
