Some patients may be intimated with the thought of specific stretches for the pelvic floor either manually or using a dilator. This manual, created by Herman & Wallace looks at an array of pelvic floor and perineal stretching, from breathing, mindful meditation and visualization techniques to help coordinate and relax the pelvic floor muscles. These external and internal manual techniques, along with the appropriate use of dilators can be employed to help patients with their home program, which is a relaxed and coordinated pelvic floor!
Dilators are a valuable part of many home treatment program, but their use can be intimidating for many patients, especially without a Pelvic Floor Therapist there to guide them. The forms, included in this manual can be customized with your clinic’s logo, can be a helpful tool to provide to your patient on how and when to use these helpful tools, and to empower them to complete their home programs comfortably and effectively.
