Have you been experiencing pain or discomfort in your pelvic region that severely limits your daily activities? Pelvic Floor Therapy can helps alleviate symptoms of pelvic dysfunction as well as enhance muscular strength. Pelvic floor rehab seeks to address current discomfort while preventing it from recurring or increasing in the future.
Common pelvic conditions that physical therapy treats include:
Urinary incontinence/bladder dysfunction/constipation –
Pelvic floor rehabilitation will concentrate on strengthening the muscles under your bladder in order to control and eliminate urine incontinence symptoms and bladder difficulties, and constipation.
Postpartum pelvic pain –
Pelvic floor damage is frequent in new moms as a result of strained muscles and/or connective tissue after giving birth. Pelvic floor healing, in addition to mending any injured muscles or tissues, results in a reduction in any discomfort the patient may be experiencing.
Pain with intercourse is commonly referred to as “dyspareunia.” Pelvic floor rehabilitation can loosen and relax the muscles in your pelvic and anal areas, which can help relieve and eliminate constipation.
Endometriosis is a disease that can damage bones, muscles, ligaments, and nerves in the pelvic region. Pelvic floor rehabilitation, in addition to strengthening the pelvic floor muscles, can help relieve the pain and bloating associated with endometriosis.
Post abdominal surgery pain –
If you are recovering from a recent surgical operation, pelvic floor rehab will help to break up scar tissue, improve stamina, and regain range of motion in your abdomen/pelvic region.
What is Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy?
Pelvic floor rehabilitation is a type of physical therapy that has been demonstrated to help with a range of pelvic pain-related issues. While many people believe that this type of therapy is exclusive for women, it is actually beneficial to all genders.
Pelvic pain can be treated with physical therapy in a number of ways. Pelvic therapy, for example, can be used to examine and improve painful intercourse and infertility issues. A few less frequent problems that can be addressed include pelvic organ prolapse, dyspareunia, and diastasis recti.
