Types of Treatment
Our Pelvic Floor Rehabilitation program was developed in order to help patients that are faced with painful and/or bothersome symptoms which interfere with their daily lives.
We understand that these issues are complex and may include urinary, colorectal and musculoskeletal components.
Whether you are having issues with leakage of urine or experiencing pelvic pain; we have tools to help you navigate your next step. There are an alarming number of people that are affected by pelvic pain/dysfunction and incontinence, yet many are not aware that help is out there. Physical therapy for pelvic health and incontinence can help you develop the tools to manage your symptoms.
Please feel free to contact our participating clinics with additional questions regarding physical therapy treatments for men and women with pelvic floor dysfunction.
What to expect at your first appointment:
A Pelvic Health physical therapist will sit down with you, one-on-one, and discuss what’s going on, your medical history, and overall lifestyle. We are trained to treat all ranges of pelvic floor dysfunction and know how personal an intimate this can be. We will evaluate your posture, hips, back, and pelvic floor to determine the best plan for YOU to get back where you want to be.
A typical initial evaluation also includes:
- Review of bowel and bladder diary
- Internal examination of muscle tone and scarring
- Assessment of pelvic floor strength, coordination, and endurance
Further information may be gathered with the use of biofeedback of the pelvic floor muscles and abdominal muscles. Your treatment will be individualized to your particular needs and may include manual therapy, education regarding your condition, biofeedback enhanced pelvic floor muscle training, instruction in a home program, core strengthening, and use of modalities as needed.
Patients will leave with a personalized treatment plan and the confidence that their personal therapist will work alongside them to help reach their goals and improve their pelvic health.
