CENTER FOR PELVIC HEALTH
Pelvic Physical Therapy is a type of physical therapy that aims to address issues related to the pelvic floor muscles in both men and women. Although it is often associated with female anatomy and childbirth, it is not limited to postpartum care. The pelvic floor muscles are essential for daily activities, so they should be given the same attention and care as other muscle groups.
What is the goal of Pelvic PT?
The aim is to enhance the coordination, strength, and efficiency of the muscles in the pelvic floor to alleviate pain and dysfunction.
Who could benefit from pelvic physical therapy?
If you’re experiencing discomfort in your pelvic region, it’s highly recommended that you consider physical therapy for your pelvic floor as a first-line remedy. Pelvic floor dysfunction can take on many forms, including bladder pain, urinary incontinence, dyspareunia (pain during intercourse), endometriosis, hip pain, interstitial cystitis, pelvic pain, pre and postnatal dysfunction, pelvic organ prolapse (POP), pre and post-surgical-abdominal-care. These pelvic conditions can occur due to aging, childbirth, illness, genitourinary infections, gastrointestinal disorders, surgery, or musculoskeletal conditions like chronic back or hip pain. It’s essential to understand that pelvic floor dysfunction can manifest in different ways and be caused by various factors, so seeking professional help is always advisable. Learn more about it.

What Should I Expect?
A pelvic examination and evaluation are not unlike any other orthopedic physical therapy evaluation. Your appointment will include a detailed discussion of your symptoms, followed by an examination to assess posture, range of motion, strength, and movement. The difference between a typical orthopedic examination and a pelvic examination is the potential addition of an internal muscle and soft tissue assessment. Assessment and treatment often include both external and internal techniques. However, we always cater to your needs and comfort level. Together, you and your therapist will work to construct a suitable plan, and we will address both the physical and emotional components of your pelvic dysfunction.
