What Does Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy Do?

The benefits of pelvic floor physical therapy are numerous. If you struggle with incontinence, pain, or you are experiencing pelvic floor dysfunction, you will benefit from pelvic floor physical therapy. Improving the mobility of your pelvic floor can improve your life in many ways.

  • Stress incontinence
  • Pelvic pain
  • Pain during sexual intercourse

This list is by no means exhaustive. If you suspect that you are living with pelvic floor dysfunction, you should consult with our professional. Our pelvic floor physical therapist will assess your musculoskeletal system to determine how you will benefit from pelvic floor physical therapy.

What Happens During Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy

Pelvic floor therapy is much like other physical therapy in that it will start with a thorough examination and assessment to determine the best plan of care. During your assessment, both the internal and external pelvic floor muscles will be evaluated. Based upon the findings, many different techniques may be utilized in your treatment, including, but not limited to, manual therapy/myofascial release, biofeedback, exercises, nerve releases, trigger point therapy, and joint mobilization. At times internal techniques may be used according to the specific findings of your evaluation with our pelvic floor physical therapist.

Additionally, our therapist may recommend lifestyle modifications that will help you train your muscles and even your nervous system. Education is a key component of physical therapy to ensure a full recovery. Your therapist will provide education about anatomy and teach you pelvic floor exercises that will help you strengthen your control over the muscles as well as improve the tone of your pelvic floor.
