Convenient And Effective Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy

Proper pelvic floor function is key for quality of life

Normal pelvic muscle function usually goes unnoticed, like blinking or breathing. However, weakened pelvic muscles can cause embarrassing and even debilitating issues that affect everything from daily routines to intimacy. Strong pelvic muscles support vital organs in the pelvic region, and these organs control some of the body’s most critical functions, including urination, bowel movements, and sexual activities. A weak or damaged pelvic floor can cause significant health problems, including:

  • Organ prolapse
  • Pain and discomfort during sexual intercourse
  • Incontinence or difficulty controlling urination and bowel movements
  • Chronic pain and muscle fatigue
  • Involuntary bladder leakage
  • Inability to control gas release

We know that these issues can drastically lower the quality of life and cause feelings of insecurity, frustration, and self-consciousness. Targeted Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy can restore full strength and function of pelvic muscles, helping you recover control over and confidence in your own body.

Physical Therapy Benefits

Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy strengthens pelvic muscles through targeted exercises that focus on tightening, releasing, and controlling specific muscle groups. With time and routine therapy, pelvic muscles can get stronger and recover from the stress of extra weight or damage. Our approach relies on a proven combination of exercise methods and manual therapies, including:

  • Focused tightening and release of pelvic floor muscles, called Kegels
  • Manual manipulation and training of specific muscles (performed by your therapist)
  • Exercises for stretching, coordination, and relaxation
  • Therapy aids used to restore muscle contraction capabilities

There’s more good news: undergoing Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy during pregnancy can be a great way to prepare for birth and prevent more severe issues after labor. Many OB/GYNS and primary care Clinicians recommend starting pelvic floor therapy as early as the second trimester.

Am I a Candidate?

How do you know if you need Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy?

If you’re experiencing pain, discomfort, or abnormal issues in the pelvic region, then physical therapy might be the simplest and most effective treatment option. Any of the following symptoms are a good reason to schedule a formal evaluation and consider Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy:

  • Partial or total inability to control urination or bowel movements
  • Pain or discomfort during urination or bowel movements
  • Aching in the groin region after walking or standing
  • Aching or pain in your lower abdominal region
  • Difficulty performing sexually

In combination with other therapies, pelvic floor treatments can also help you regain the ability to exercise and help you tighten and tone areas stretched due to labor and weight gain, etc. In addition, for men, Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy can aid recovery from prostate surgery and help avoid side effects like incontinence or pelvic discomfort.

Your Pelvic Floor Treatment

Building the right Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy plan for you

Though birth is one of the primary reasons that pelvic muscles are weakened or damaged in women, the pelvic floor of both men and women can be stressed in several ways, including:

  • Pelvic surgery
  • Muscle atrophy
  • Prostate surgery
  • Chronic gut inflammation
  • Accidental damage or trauma
  • Obesity or excessive weight gain
  • Carrying extra weight during pregnancy
  • Vaginal stretching or tearing during labor

Our process starts with a thorough 60-minute minute examination and treatment session. During this time together, your physical therapist will learn more about your specific medical history and issues and assess how well you can control pelvic muscles through various tests. We’ll explain each aspect of the process to ensure you know what to expect and make the experience as comfortable and discreet as possible. By understanding your story, listening to your symptoms, and conducting a minimally invasive examination, we can provide a holistic diagnosis and therapy plan that meets your exact needs.

Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy Frequently Asked Questions

Sometimes, physical therapy may be uncomfortable, and it is understandable to be concerned. However, your doctor will work with you to adjust and vary the intensity of your therapy. The treatment may cause a response, and the discomfort may be caused by new movement patterns or tissue forming as a result of the therapy.

The duration of your therapy will be determined by your specific condition and your willingness to stick to your treatment plan. Within one to three months, patients who attend physical therapy regularly and adhere to their treatment plan will see a decrease in symptoms. However, depending on your condition, they may need further treatment.

Your therapy results are determined by your diagnosis, motivation, and personal objectives. Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy will be most effective if you commit to adopting long-term lifestyle adjustments to strengthen your muscles and relieve discomfort.

While most insurance plans cover pelvic floor physical treatment, every insurance plan is different. Payment is due at the time of service, and The Center for Fully Functional Health will provide an invoice for you to submit your insurance carrier. We cannot guarantee coverage or reimbursement.
