Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy

If you are experiencing pelvic pain, pelvic pressure, sexual dysfunction, pelvic organ prolapse, or incontinence; pelvic floor Physical Therapy can help. The pelvic floor muscles help support our pelvic organs, stabilize the spine and pelvis, assist with sexual function, and allow for bladder and bowel control. These muscles are similar to all other muscles in our body in that they can become weak, stretched out, or too tight. When this occurs it can lead to pelvic floor dysfunction.

The type of treatment you receive will depend on your specific symptoms and areas of dysfunction. A pelvic floor Physical Therapist can perform an evaluation which may include both internal and external assessments of the pelvic floor muscles as well as the surrounding musculature. This is done in order to assess the strength, flexibility, and coordination of these structures as well as to identify any areas of increased pain or tension. While some will require strengthening of these muscles to address the dysfunction, others will require relaxing and lengthening of the muscles. Your treatment may include stretching, trigger point release, dry needling, biofeedback, or strengthening exercises.
