Pelvic floor physical therapy services
Pelvic floor muscles help support internal organs and aid with the proper functioning of the bladder and bowels. An appropriate balance of strength and relaxation is needed for pelvic floor muscles to function normally.
Certain factors, such as increased age, pregnancy and hysterectomy recovery, can cause pelvic floor muscles to weaken. Weak muscles in the pelvic floor can cause urinary incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse and fecal incontinence.
Pelvic floor physical therapy can help prevent urinary leakage and treat urinary incontinence.
Our physical therapists assist patients by:
- Educating patients on proper diet to improve overall health and quality of life
- Strengthening the core and pelvic floor muscles
- Teaching proper techniques to aid in pelvic floor health
