Physical therapy for pelvic wellness
The pelvic floor refers to the group of muscles that form a hammock inside the ring of the pelvis. These muscles support the bowel, bladder and uterus in women. Pelvic floor dysfunction occurs when this area is weak, uncoordinated or too dense. This could result in pelvic pain, incontinence of bowel or bladder, high urge, or pain with intercourse. Fortunately, you don't have to live with the anxiety, embarrassment and discomfort that results from this common women's health problem. Physical therapy can greatly lessen or even reverse the effects and give you a better quality of life.
Our experienced physical therapists are specially trained in this condition. They'll perform a thorough medical history assessment and exam to determine the cause. Then, they'll create a personalized combination of exercises, behavior modification and muscle retraining to help restore normal pelvic function.
