What is Pelvic Floor Therapy?
Pelvic floor therapy, often known as pelvic physical therapy, is a specialized branch of physical therapy focused on the assessment and treatment of the pelvic floor muscles and associated structures. The pelvic floor is a group of muscles, ligaments, and connective tissues that form a supportive hammock-like structure at the base of the pelvis, providing essential functions in controlling urinary and bowel functions, supporting the organs within the pelvis, and playing a key role in sexual health.
Pelvic floor therapy is designed to address a wide range of issues, including pelvic pain, incontinence (both urinary and fecal), pelvic organ prolapse, sexual dysfunction, and problems related to pregnancy and postpartum recovery. The therapy is suitable for individuals of all genders and ages, including pregnant women and postpartum mothers.
By effectively addressing these concerns, pelvic floor therapy can lead to a significant improvement in an individual's overall quality of life, enabling them to regain confidence, comfort, and control over their pelvic health. It offers a non-invasive, evidence-based approach to managing a wide range of pelvic floor-related conditions and can be a valuable resource for those seeking to optimize their overall well-being.
