Work with specialists who can help you improve your ability to control your pelvic floor. For your comfort, you can choose to work with a male or female rehabilitation therapist.
What’s the Pelvic Floor?
The pelvic floor is made up of the muscles that support your pelvic organs, including the bladder, bowel, rectum, urethra and reproductive organs.
Conditions We Treat
Find care for conditions such as:
- Constipation – Bowel movements that are hard to pass or don’t happen often
- Fecal incontinence – Accidental leak of stool or gas
- Pelvic floor dysfunction – Painful or abnormal function of the pelvic floor, causing chronic bowel and/or bladder problems
- Pelvic floor prolapse – Bulging of a pelvic organ out of its normal position
- Postpartum pelvic floor conditions – Problems that happen after pregnancy
- Urinary incontinence, including stress and urgency incontinence – Lack of bladder control or ability to hold urine in, causing leaks
Pelvic Pain Relief
Chronic pelvic pain is pain that lasts for six months or more. Rely on our therapists to treat pain that affects the pelvic muscles or organs and conditions like:
- Cystitis, which is an infection of the bladder
- Dysmenorrhea, or painful periods/menstrual cramps
- Dyspareunia and vaginismus, pain during sex
- Endometriosis, when uterine tissue grows outside the uterus
- Penis or testicle pain
- Rectal pain or pain when passing stool
- Tailbone (coccyx) pain
- Vulvodynia or vulva vestibulitis, which means pain around the vulva, the opening of the vagina
Rehabilitation After Surgery
Pelvic therapy can help you recover after a procedure such as bladder or prolapse repair, a Cesarean section (C-section), episiotomy or hysterectomy.
