Pelvic Floor Rehabilitation

Pelvic Floor Rehabilitation

Pelvic rehabilitation addresses pelvic conditions that result in bowel, bladder, sexual dysfunction, and/or pelvic pain. Because the pelvic floor plays an integral role in bowel, bladder, and sex, a musculoskeletal issue within the pelvic floor may affect one or all of these functions. For example, you may start by experiencing only constipation, and then also develop urinary leaking. Sometimes identifying the cause of the pain or dysfunction is difficult to do. Your physical therapy evaluation and treatment will help to figure this out, and will rehabilitate the pelvic floor via a variety of techniques as needed, including hands-on manual therapy, pain and stress management strategies, relaxation and mindfulness skills, nutrition recommendations, and exercises to integrate the pelvic floor with other body systems and gain back automatic coordination and function.
