What is pelvic floor rehabilitation?
The pelvic floor muscles, tendons, and ligaments all play an important role in protecting your body’s central organs.
A customized care plan will be created to address your specific dysfunction and goals. Typically, this would necessitate a variety of simple exercises, and visceral mobilizations to eliminate restrictions that cause dysfunction. We are able to feel for and localize dysfunction within your abdominal region and work to eliminate them, restoring proper function of your organs.
Pelvic floor rehabilitation is a form of physical therapy that has been shown to treat a variety of pelvic-related conditions. Both men and women benefit from pelvic floor treatments.
More common pelvic & abdominal/midsection conditions that we treat include:
Restrictions surrounding your uterus, ovaries, and fallopian tubes can lead to painful menstrual cycles and cause your eggs to be unable to properly attach to the wall of the uterus to be fertilized. These restrictions can be released non invasively in order to restore proper function!
Endometriosis is a prevalent disease that affects many individuals. It can damage bones, muscles, ligaments, and nerves in the pelvic region. Thankfully, physical therapy can help.
Pelvic floor rehabilitation, in addition to strengthening the pelvic floor muscles, can help relieve the pain and bloating associated with endometriosis.
Pain following abdominal surgery
If you are recovering from a recent surgical operation, pelvic floor rehab will help to break up scar tissue, improve stamina, and regain range of motion in your abdomen/pelvic region.
Urinary incontinence/bladder dysfunction
Pelvic floor rehabilitation will focus on restoring function in the muscles under your bladder to manage and remove urinary incontinence symptoms and bladder problems.
Rather than just treating the symptoms, a physical therapist will assist you in determining the cause of your urinary incontinence problem and treating it.
Pelvic floor & viscercal rehabilitation can loosen and relax the muscles in your GI tract and viscera, which helps with peristalsis and digestion.
Postpartum pelvic pain
It is common for new mothers to experience pelvic floor trauma as a result of strained muscles and/or connective tissue after giving birth. Pelvic floor healing, in addition to restoring any damaged muscles or tissues, leads to a decrease in any pain they may be feeling.
GIRD GastroIntestinal Reflux Disease (acid reflux/heartburn)
Restrictions surrounding your somach and espohagus can lead to acid reflux. These restrictions can be targeted and liberated to restore proper function to your system. Sleeping position is also important to decrease chances of overnight acid reflux.
