ABOUT PELVIC HEALTH

The Pelvic Floor is a term used to describe a group of muscles that sit at the bottom of the pelvis. This group of muscles act as a sling, holding up vital organs and aiding in both urethral and rectal control, as well as sexual function. If the muscles in the pelvic floor become weak or too tight, no longer functioning as they should, this is called pelvic floor dysfunction. Pelvic floor physical therapy is specialized treatment aiming to restore mobility and strength of your pelvic floor, as well as return you to your full, pain free function.

WHY PELVIC FLOOR PHYSICAL THERAPY?

Women that utilize pelvic floor physical therapy programs:

  • Are 8x more likely to report being cured from stress urinary incontinence compared to women who did not see a physical therapist.

  • Report significantly reduced symptom scores and improved staging of pelvic organ prolapse at 12 months.

  • Have significant improvements in pain, quality of life scores, and overall improved sexual function than women who do not receive pelvic floor training.

  • Have a lower risk of urinary incontinence in late pregnancy, and a lower risk of urinary incontinence 3-6 months post-partum compared to women who did not receive pelvic floor physical therapy.
