Part Deux - Pelvic Floor Stretching
Did you try the pelvic floor stretching?
I know, I know, putting your finger "down there" can be uncomfortable.
So, here is Part Deux of Pelvic Floor Stretching WITHOUT any internal stuff. 😁
TOWEL ROLL PELVIC FLOOR STRETCH: Take a hand towel and roll it into a log. Place on a flat surface, like a dining room chair (a chair with handles may be better to help control it). Gently sit onto the towel roll and relax into it. Allow it to come up into your perineum. This may be tender, so go slowly!
Progression: Once you can fully relax, gently and slowly rock forward/backward, side to side, to find any tender/tight spots.
Do this for 1 minute to begin. You can work up to 3-5 minutes, as tolerated.
Remember: Less is more!!!
The pelvic floor muscles encompass the entirety of the perineum.
This is why the towel roll stretch works well.
I suggest giving this a try 1-3 times per day for a few days to see if it helps decrease or resolve your symptoms.
Cheers to Empowerment!
