PELVIC FLOOR AND DIASTISIS RECTI EDUCATION
Join us in welcoming Angie Peters, MPT Pelvic Rehabilitation & Orthopedic Care specialist to Fluid Motion Maui
July 10th from 4:30pm-6:00pm.
In this workshop, Angie will discuss common pelvic floor and pelvic girdle dysfunctions as well as issues related to Diastisis Recti. There will be plenty of time to ask questions!
The pelvic floor muscle is the area between the pubic bone in the front of the pelvis and the tail bone in the back. With soft tissue and nerves, it creates a sling that supports the abdominal and pelvic organs (i.e., bladder, uterus and bowel). When muscles in this area are weak, they cannot stop leakage. When they are too tight, they can cause incomplete voiding, sexual pain and/or constipation.
Diastisis Recti, also known as abdominal separation, is commonly defined as a gap of roughly 2.7 cm or greater between the two sides of the rectus abdominis muscle. A bulge may be visible down your midline. Diastasis recti generally isn't dangerous, but in rare cases a hernia can develop if your organs poke through the open muscles. It can also cause lower back pain.
Angie Peters has a Master's Degree from the University of Utah School of Physical Therapy. With almost two decades of experience and extensive post graduate work in the field of Women's Health and Pelvic Rehabilitation, she is an expert in her field. We are thrilled to have Angie practicing on Maui and presenting this FREE workshop to our Ohana.
