Our Mission is Your Recovery

Pelvic Health

Pelvic health physical therapy is a type of physical therapy that considers the pelvic floor musculature and its roles in support and stability, bowel and bladder control, and sexual functioning. Our physical therapists have received specialized training in this area of treatment and care for patients in a highly individualized, dignified, and private manner.

The pelvic floor consists of three layers of muscles which provide support to the pelvic organs, maintain continence, aid in sexual functioning, provide stability and act as a venous and lymphatic pump. However, dysfunction can occur within the muscles that can affect the pelvic floor's ability to perform its functions and ultimately effect the quality of life. Pelvic girdle dysfunction can result as a response to bodily stress, trauma, surgery, or abdominal movement patterns and Pelvic Health Physical Therapy can help resolve these dysfunctions.
