Restoring Men’s Health Through Alignment
May 30, 2014 08:45AM
Pelvic floor dysfunction (PFD) is a common syndrome that many men may not know afflicts them. Using physical alignment markers to build awareness of current postural habits, Restorative Exercise offers gentle stretching and strengthening exercises to achieve optimal alignment for better pelvic health. The Kinesphere Center for Movement Education will be hosting a special Restorative Exercise workshop dedicated to men’s health from 6:30 to 8 p.m., June 11, geared toward adult males of all ages.
Although it can exhibit a variety of symptoms, those more commonly associated with PFD include sexual dysfunction, incontinence, constipation and enlarged prostate. Other, lesser-known symptoms include low back pain, hip pain and infertility.
As a prescription, professionals often recommend strengthening the pelvic floor and core, but this is only one piece of the puzzle. The pelvic floor and core comprise a small portion of the muscles that depend on functional alignment of the whole body. The length and strength of the pelvic floor are influenced by the stability of the pelvis, which is in turn directly influenced by the alignment of the legs and upper body.
