What is Pelvic Physical Therapy?

Pelvic floor physical therapy includes the evaluation and treatment of individuals targeting dysfunction of the pelvic floor muscles. Due to the high prevalence of conditions directly related to the female anatomy and childbirth, pelvic physical therapy may also be referred to as Women’s Health Physical Therapy, however is not limited to the postpartum population.

Not unlike other muscle groups in the body, the pelvic floor plays a prominent role in daily activities, and should be treated likewise. The goal of pelvic floor PT is to improve the coordination, strength, and effectiveness of the pelvic floor muscles to help alleviate pain and dysfunction.

Your first visit.

When evaluating the pelvic region, it's not that different from an orthopedic physical therapy evaluation. The process starts with discussing your symptoms in detail, followed by an examination to assess your posture, range of motion, strength, and movement. The primary difference between a typical evaluation and a pelvic examination is that the latter may include an internal muscle and soft tissue assessment. Both external and internal techniques may be used for assessment and treatment, tailored to the patient's needs and comfort level. The therapist and patient work together to develop a plan addressing pelvic dysfunction's physical and emotional aspects.

Treatment Strategies.

Manual Therapy- Massage to release trigger points in pelvic floor muscles.

Pelvic Floor Exercise- Pelvic floor therapy goes beyond "Kegel" exercises. Relaxation of an overactive pelvic floor precedes muscle strengthening. These exercises aim to restore muscle strength and function to improve daily activities.

Biofeedback- Patients can use biofeedback devices to retrain pelvic floor muscles internally or externally.

Self-Care and Symptom Management Strategies- Treatment can be personalized for each patient, and many strategies can be done in their home.
