  • What is Pelvic Floor Rehabilitation?

Pelvic floor physical therapy is a specialized kind of physical therapy to relieve the symptoms of pelvic floor dysfunction and help the muscles work the way they should. This includes several exercises that help your pelvic muscles relax and get stronger.

 

Pelvic floor physical therapy involves the pelvic floor muscle group, which is responsible for a variety of functions.

 

These muscles support the pelvic organs, assist in bowel and bladder control, and contribute to sexual arousal and orgasm. 

 

  • Who needs pelvic floor treatment?

A person may be referred to pelvic floor physical therapy to treat incontinence, difficulty with urination or bowel movements, constipation, chronic pelvic pain, and painful intercourse.

  • How is Pelvic Floor Treatment done?

Pelvic floor physical therapists might use several techniques:

Education: Patients may need to learn more about their pelvic anatomy and how different components work alone and together. They may also need to learn how habits or hygiene affect their symptoms.

Pelvic floor exercises: Patients are taught how to contract and relax pelvic floor muscles in relation to other muscles. They are also taught breathing and timing techniques to make the exercises more effective. Such exercises can stretch tight muscles, strengthen weak ones, and improve flexibility.

Manual therapy: A physical therapist may use hands-on massage or stretching to help with posture, blood circulation, and mobility.
