pelvic floor physical Therapy

The pelvic floor consists of a group of muscles — similar to a sling — that support the bladder, rectum, uterus in women and prostate in men. Bowel and bladder movements are controlled when contracting or relaxing these muscles. When these muscles don’t work as they should, you may experience:

  • An urgent or frequent need to use the restroom
  • Urinary leakage
  • Bowel incontinence
  • Constipation
  • Painful intercourse
  • Pelvic pain or pressure

Pelvic floor disorders can affect people of all ages, including both men and women. Pelvic floor physical therapy is a non-surgical option intended to decrease pain, relieve symptoms and improve quality of life.

How can pelvic floor therapy improve your condition?

Our goal is to help you regain control of your bladder or bowel functions, decrease pain and improve activity tolerance all while reducing the need for medications for incontinence and pain. Pelvic floor physical therapy is a non-surgical solution that may include:

  • Customized exercises to improve strength, endurance and muscle coordination and flexibility
  • Biofeedback training to improve muscle contraction and relaxation
  • Electrical stimulation
  • Manual therapy for myofascial/trigger point release and internal pelvic muscle massages to reduce muscle pain and release scar tissues and adhesions
  • Self-care education, including diet and lifestyle changes that can help improve health
