Core and Pelvic Floor Strengthening

Core body strength has become a popular catchword in gyms fitness classes, and using elements of Pilates and yoga can contribute to improved core function. Improved core strength can have profound implications for other performance, movement and balance needs.  Like balance problems, pelvic floor weakness and its consequences have been linked to normal aging. However this is not the case, and for both men and women, even after weakness has caused problems, treatment is available that can help regain function and control.

Referral to a pelvic physical therapy specialist will be made when appropriate.
