What's Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy?

Pelvic floor physical therapy is a non-surgical approach to help strengthen and improve the function of your pelvic floor. Your pelvic floor is a group of muscles that support your bladder, bowel and uterus.

Conditions We Treat

Work with a pelvic floor physical therapist if you experience:

  • Bowel and bladder dysfunction
  • Diastasis recti (separation of the abdominal muscles)
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Pelvic and vaginal pain
  • Prenatal and postpartum pain in your muscles, ligaments or tendons
  • Sexual difficulties

Your Appointment

Take an active role in your pelvic health. At each appointment, tell us how you’re feeling and what’s helping so we can recommend the best approaches for you. You’ll meet with a physical therapist (PT) to create a treatment plan that fits your goals and lifestyle. To help you feel your best, your PT will:

  • Review your medical history and discuss your concerns
  • Assess your pelvic floor muscles
  • Examine your spine, hips, legs and core

Pelvic Floor Exam

You’ll receive a detailed exam to look at the bones, muscles and ligaments of your pelvic floor. The exam looks for:

  • Areas with scar tissue
  • Muscle asymmetry, strength, length and tone
  • Pelvic organ prolapse (descent of the bladder or rectum)
  • Pelvic positioning
  • Proper motor control
  • Reflexes of your pelvic floor
  • Restrictions in the connective tissue
  • Trigger points and weakness in pelvis
