Pelvic Floor Rehabilitation FAQs here
The pelvic floor is an important part of your body that includes muscles, tendons, and ligaments that lay at the base of your pelvis. These structures provide support for organs such as the bladder and uterus, along with providing stabilization of the hips and lower back. If this region is not functioning properly, it can lead to issue such as low back pain, pelvic pain (genital, pubic, or bladder area), urinary/bowel incontinence, pressure in pelvis, and pain with sexual activity and/or urination.
Our doctor of physical therapy, trained in pelvic dysfunction, will ask many questions on your history to obtain a better understanding of possible causes and how best to help you. She will then look at the alignment of your entire body and overall quality of movement, and then will assess your pelvic floor both externally and internally. Based on the findings from the whole examination, our physical therapist will then be able to provide extensive education to make sure you understand what you can do to help any issues, and begin to provide treatment. Treatments may include mobilization to tight joints or muscles, pelvic floor muscle training, trigger point release, bladder re-training, and education. The overall goal and main focus of our physical therapist is on rehabbing the overall pelvic girdle for long term results.
