Three Steps to Better Core Wellness
Your body’s core includes your torso and your pelvis. It is responsible for some pretty important things. Your abdominal muscles help give you stability, balance, and power to your limbs. Muscles in the pelvis are also crucial in the functioning of your pelvic organs, preventing bladder leaks and constipation. When your core isn’t functioning well, it can impact your overall health and wellbeing.
While these symptoms can be uncomfortable and annoying, they are usually no more than an inconvenience. However, the inconvenience can eventually affect your quality of life. There is also a greater risk of experiencing anxiety and depression.
Talking about pelvic health and core health is a complicated topic. Many people feel uncomfortable talking about them. Even if they speak to a health care provider, many family doctors are not well-versed in the causes or the treatments. Instead, many people find ways to deal with their symptoms and chalk them up to signs of ageing.
Fortunately, there are comfortable and safe ways to improve your core wellness for better functioning abdominal muscles and a healthy pelvic floor. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms or know someone who is, follow these steps to better core wellness.
Step One – Get an Assessment
Many people suffer from pelvic dysfunction or core fitness issues but don’t realize it. They may have unexpected bladder leaks, urinary stress incontinence or urge incontinence. Women may even experience pelvic organ prolapse. This occurs when the pelvic floor does not adequately support the organs, including the uterus.
Core fitness symptoms can include a general feeling of weakness or inability to engage core muscles fully. Diastasis recti (DR) is also a common symptom. DR occurs when the connective tissue between the two groups of abdominal muscles across the front of your body becomes thinned and stretched. Internal pressure is created through your movements, causing a bulge to appear.
Get an assessment from a core health specialist, pelvic health therapist or a pelvic physiotherapist.
Step Two – Improve Your Pelvic Floor Fitness
There are multiple forms of pelvic dysfunction, and each requires a different approach to treatment. Weak pelvic floor muscles can cause pelvic dysfunction. Hypertonic muscles or muscles which are too tight can also cause urinary incontinence, constipation and pelvic pain. A pelvic floor physiotherapist can determine your situation and suggest the right course of action to treat it. Treatments could include targeted exercise and lifestyle changes or more advanced treatments like Emsella from BTL Aesthetics.
Step Three – Get on the Road to Better Core Fitness
Core fitness requires a similar initial assessment and treatment using BTL’s Emsculpt, which uses electromagnetic energy to generate thousands of supramaximal contractions in the targeted area. These contractions restore full activation and function to poorly functioning muscles to get you feeling like your old self again.
Why Emsella is More than Kegel Chair Therapy
Our Venus Ab Rehab incorporates Emscuplt treatments with support and education to help you recover your core conditioning and fitness.
Emsella is part of our Libby Chair Pelvic therapy. It uses electromagnetic energy to induce contractions in the pelvic muscles, similar to Kegel exercises. However, Emsella in Oakville at Corelife Wellness is much more than a Kegel chair. It improves muscle tone and blood flow to soft tissues. Emsella generates thousands of supramaximal contractions more quickly and with greater intensity than you can achieve on your own. Because we support you with additional education and training as part of the treatment, your Libby results last.
