What is pelvic floor physical therapy?
The pelvic floor is a group of muscles in the pelvic area that supports the organs of the pelvis. Problems in the pelvic floor can occur when muscles are too tight, too loose, not synchronized appropriately, or when there are problems with the nerves in the pelvic floor.
Pelvic floor physical therapy is a very specialized form of physical therapy that addresses all types of pelvic floor dysfunction through manual therapy, biofeedback, exercise therapy, functional training, and core strengthening. All pelvic floor physical therapy is accomplished with the help of a specialized physical therapy team, providing personalized care. If you’re looking for that personalized care, contact the gastroenterologists at GI Alliance. They will help you with your pelvic floor dysfunction, allowing you to get back to your new normal.
What common disorders are addressed with pelvic floor physical therapy?
Disorders of the pelvic floor are extremely common in both men and women, but patients rarely discuss them, even with their physician. Some common disorders are:
- Lack of bowel or bladder control (incontinence)
- All varieties of pelvic pain, including sexual dysfunction
- Lack of pelvic structural support (pelvic organ prolapse)
- Difficulty with bowel or bladder evacuation
If you believe you are dealing with one of the above disorders and need assistance, reach out to the team of GI physicians to schedule an appointment at GI Alliance.
