If you have chronic pelvic floor pain, difficulty with sex, back or hip mobility concerns, this could be improved with pelvic floor physical therapy. A great way to ease into physical therapy, supplement your ongoing treatment plan, and/or just have increased range of motion and flexibility is to incorporate mindfulness , yoga , and stretching into your life! Many of the stretches described below can be done individually or in a series as part of your at home treatment.
Utilize this list to find stretch positions and modifications, which will allow you to meet your body on its own level each day. Work through the playlist to identify the best modifications for each stretch that will allow you to work your target areas and create your own daily playlist of stellar stretches! Always remember to practice your diaphragmatic breathing throughout your daily routines, and utilize tools to help you bring these positions to your level. If you need yoga blocks or straps, comfortable clothing, or any other tool to help you reach success, my two FAVORITE stores are listed at the bottom of this catalogue! 👇👇👇
