Pre and post Prostatectomy – Training the pelvic floor is an important step before and after the operation.
Pelvic floor conditioning – A lot of people do not realize that there are important muscles hidden in the perineum area. These are skeletal muscles which also require training like any other muscle in your body. Having the ability to control the pelvic floor muscles can improve incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse and sexual satisfaction.
Pelvic organ prolapse: This refers to the descending of pelvic organs, such as the uterus, bladder and vaginal walls. Pelvic organs are supported by many ligaments and pelvic floor muscles.

Tail bone pain – Coccydynia. This can be from many reasons. It is possible to reduce and even eliminate this with a proper treatment plan.
Painful intercourse – Dysparenia, Vestibulodynia and Vaginismus:
Dysparenia: Statistics indicate that 10 to 15% of North American women suffer from pain during sexual activities. This can be deep or superficial.
Vestibulodynia: Severe pain on vestibular touch or attemped vaginal entry.
Vaginismus: This is an involuntary contraction of the pelvic floor muscles, which potentially makes vaginal entry painful and sometimes impossible.
You can learn how to relax the pelvic muscles and lower the increased tone, which is necessary to decrease the pain. Comfortable sexual intimacy is possible with treatment.
