PELVIC FLOOR PHYSICAL THERAPY

Improving your strength, coordination and pain

What is a Pelvic Floor Disorder?

Pelvic floor disorders are surprisingly common among women and men. The pelvic floor is an important group of muscles, ligaments and connective tissues that support the bladder, bowels and uterus as well as support sexual function in both men and women.

Symptoms of Pelvic Floor Disorder Include:

  • Leaking urine or feces
  • Pelvic organ prolapse (a heaviness felt in the pelvis)
  • Pain in the pelvis, lower back, hip & sacroiliac joint
  • Pain with intercourse
  • Pain during or after pregnancy
  • Changes in urinary/fecal urgency and/or frequency
  • Leaking urine when you laugh, cough, sneeze or lift something heavy
  • Incomplete emptying of the bladder during urination
  • Painful scarring (C-section scars or episiotomy/tearing)

The Art of Kegel

A Kegel is an exercise that contracts the pelvic floor muscles. This exercise may be prescribed to you following a complete evaluation. A weak pelvic floor will benefit from performing Kegel contractions correctly. However, in a patient with a tight or spastic pelvic floor, the symptoms may worsen with Kegel exercises. Make sure to see a pelvic floor specialist in order to do a full assessment and determine the best individualized exercise plan for you.
