Pelvic Floor Assessments
As many women suffer from pelvic floor weakness after pregnancy, we use this technology to image muscles deep inside that are hard to examine and measure. The images can assist in determining the health and function of these muscles.
By simply imaging the lower tummy we can determine if the pelvic floor muscles are working well. In turn this allows us to tailor your fitness regime accordingly, to ensure you are using correct techniques and exercises within a safe level and in-line with your recovery process.
Core Muscle Assessments
Abdominal separation after pregnancy (rectus diastasis) is very common. And as your core muscles need to be working effectively to support the spine and pelvis, real time ultrasound can be used to image and see these ‘core muscles’. We can then identify which layers of muscle are activating when the core is contracted and if there are any problems with accurate contraction.
From here we can use the images to help you learn how to best activate your own core to support your lower back or pelvis. The real time ultrasound can be used not only to see the images but also to help train your muscular system.
