What is the pelvic floor?
The pelvic floor refers to the muscles that support the reproductive and urinary tract, including the bladder, uterus (or prostate), and rectum; myotendinous structures wrapping around the urethra, vagina (in females), and rectum. These muscles attach to the pelvis, tailbone, and sacrum. In addition to providing support, they also help control bladder and bowel function.
When these muscles aren’t working as they should, they can cause pain and other symptoms that interfere with daily functioning. Holistic pelvic floor therapy can help ease pain and associated symptoms and normal functioning.
What is pelvic floor physical therapy?
Pelvic floor physical therapy is a treatment to help address pain, weakness, and dysfunction in the pelvic floor muscles. The type of therapy prescribed will depend upon the symptoms experienced. For example, some symptoms will require relaxing and lengthening of the muscles, while others may require more strengthening. The holistic treatment offered at MediPro considers the whole person, addressing systems beyond the musculoskeletal including mental-emotional, circulatory, hormonal, nutritional, functional, and so on.
This treatment can be used to treat pelvic floor dysfunction and the symptoms so often associated with it. Some symptoms that can be improved with pelvic floor physical therapy are:
Urinary problems, such as:
Urinary incontinence, frequency, and urgency
Difficulty stopping or starting urinating
Difficulty fully emptying the bladder
Straining or experiencing pain during bowel movements
Pain in the genital area
Pain during intercourse
