Pelvic Floor Therapy

What is pelvic floor therapy?

Pelvic floor therapy is a program that uses assessments and personalized physical therapy treatment plans to resolve pelvic pain and functional problems.

Pelvic floor therapy may be right for you if you’re a woman or person assigned female at birth struggling with vaginal pain, pelvic floor muscle tension and pain or urinary or fecal incontinence. However, not all types of pelvic floor disorders respond to pelvic floor therapy. That’s why it’s important that you check with your specialist regarding your individual condition.

What to expect from pelvic floor therapy

Your care provider will perform internal and external exams and assessments to determine the areas of the pelvis in need of rehabilitation. They’ll then guide you through a set of physical therapy exercises designed to fit your individual needs. It’s also typical for your provider to teach you relaxation and breathing techniques to support better comfort and recovery.

What are the benefits of pelvic floor therapy?

You may be thinking that pelvic floor therapy sounds like it requires hard work and commitment, but it’s important to remember that patients like you see success all the time. The biggest benefits of pelvic floor therapy include:

  • Personalized care tailored to your physical needs
  • Greatly reducing or even completely resolving symptoms
  • Improving your quality of life and happiness
