What To Expect With Pelvic Floor Therapy

When You Need Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy

Recognizing when to seek pelvic floor physical therapy is critical in addressing various health concerns that may significantly impact your daily life. Understanding the connection between specific symptoms and pelvic floor dysfunction is vital for timely and effective treatment.
Potential Causes Of Pelvic Pain

Persistent Lower Back Pain

Chronic lower back pain may indicate pelvic floor dysfunction, often stemming from weakened or imbalanced pelvic muscles that fail to properly support the lower spine. This lack of support can lead to ongoing discomfort, making targeted pelvic floor therapy a critical component in both alleviating pain and improving spinal stability.

Urinary Incontinence

Urinary incontinence often points to a pelvic floor imbalance where muscles are either too weak to maintain bladder control or too tight, causing involuntary leakage. Pelvic floor physical therapy focuses on strengthening or relaxing these muscles, restoring control, and enhancing bladder function.

Pelvic Organ Prolapse

Pelvic organ prolapse occurs when pelvic muscles and connective tissues weaken, allowing organs to descend or bulge into the vaginal canal. Through targeted exercises and therapies, pelvic floor physical therapy aims to reinforce these supporting structures, preventing further prolapse and alleviating associated symptoms.

Constipation or Bowel Straining

Difficulty with bowel movements, such as constipation or straining, can be indicative of pelvic floor muscle tension or weakness, disrupting normal bowel function. Tailored pelvic floor therapy can effectively relax or strengthen these muscles, restoring regular bowel movement and reducing discomfort.
Pain during sexual activity can signal pelvic floor dysfunction, potentially due to overly tight or weak muscles in the pelvic region. Addressing this through specialized pelvic floor therapy can alleviate discomfort, improving sexual function and overall intimate well-being.

Chronic Pelvic Pain

Chronic pelvic pain, a symptom that manifests in various forms, often indicates underlying medical conditions requiring specialized attention. It’s essential to understand its different causes to provide effective treatment:

  • Myofascial Pain (Muscle Tension): This refers to pain stemming from tense pelvic floor muscles, leading to deep, aching sensations often described as a heavy or dragging feeling in the pelvic area.
  • Neuropathic Pain (Nerve Pain): Caused by nerve irritation or damage, patients typically experience sharp, burning, or shooting pains akin to electric shocks or stinging sensations in the pelvic region.
  • Pelvic Organ-Related Conditions: Conditions like endometriosis (tissue growth outside the uterus) or fibroids (benign tumors in the uterus) can cause persistent and distressing pelvic discomfort, often described as throbbing or cramping pain.

Addressing chronic pelvic pain through pelvic floor therapy involves a comprehensive and multifaceted approach. By focusing on the specific causes — whether muscular, neurological, or related to pelvic organs—we aim to alleviate the pain, restore pelvic function, and enhance your overall quality of life. 

Postpartum Recovery

After childbirth, we often experience weakened or injured pelvic floor muscles. Pelvic floor physical therapy plays a crucial role in strengthening these muscles, aiding in recovery, and helping new mothers regain pelvic floor function, contributing to a smoother and more comfortable postpartum period.
