Pelvic Health Physical Therapy involves evaluation and treatment of problems affecting the bowel, bladder, sexual health, and other concerns related to the pelvis. Pelvic Floor Physical Therapists are trained to evaluate and treat these problems by thoroughly assessing joint dysfunction, scar tissue, neural mobility, soft tissue tension, core coordination, and other muscle imbalances. After assessing the cause of your pain or symptoms, we utilize manual techniques, activity modification, and educate you on an individualized exercise program to optimize your health and return you to doing the things you love to do.
“Pelvic health physical therapy is only for pregnant and postpartum women.”
Pelvic floor physical therapy addresses the pelvic floor muscles, and men have these muscles, too! Pelvic health physical therapy can also address pelvic floor problems in a variety of populations such as triathletes, other high level athletes, older adults, and males.
“It is normal to pee when I sneeze or cough since I had a big baby.”
Urinary incontinence can be a concern during pregnancy and postpartum, but it is not “normal”. Possible causes can be an imbalance or incoordination of the pelvic floor muscles and should be addressed.
