Perineum is the cluster of muscles located at the basis of the pelvis, which is responsible for supporting pelvic organs and controlling the urinal and fecal continence. After pregnancy there can be the relaxation of the perineum muscles and consequently cause problems like urinary and fecal incontinency, pain in pelvic region, among others.
The re-education focuses on the strengthening of perineal muscles and can be done either by electro-stimulation or by specific exercises. In our office we perform the re-education with exercises that aim the strengthening of perineal muscles alongside the abdominal muscles. This approach acts in the perineum, in the posture and is an important allied to help new moms to recover the body shape they had before pregnancy.
