SERVICES & PATIENT RESOURCES:

Pelvic physical therapy combines conventional therapy with special techniques designed for the pelvic region to address improper muscle function and pain.  Our specially trained therapist uses innovative techniques to alleviate conditions such as:

  • Urinary or fecal incontinence – the loss of bladder or bowel control
  • Urinary retention – the inability to urinate
  • Pelvic pain
  • Pelvic organ prolapse – a condition in which organs, such as the uterus, shift or slip down and out of place
  • Painful sexual intercourse
  • Pelvic or back pain
  • Weak pelvic floor muscles
  • Poor posture
  • Pregnancy-related conditions

 

Pregnancy can lead to several conditions that affect the muscles in and around the pelvic area, as well as other regions of the body. Many of these pregnancy-related conditions can be managed through a program in pelvic physical therapy.

Our trained pelvic physical therapist treats the following common pregnancy-related conditions:

  • Abdominal or pelvic adhesions
  • Diastasis rectus abdominus
  • Pelvic or back pain
  • Poor posture
  • Pubic symphysis dysfunction
  • Weak pelvic floor or core muscles
