Pelvic Floor Therapy: Specialized Solutions

Pelvic pain and dysfunction, a pervasive issue affecting up to 20% of individuals in the United States, necessitates specialized care. At ProFlex Physical Therapy, we understand the impact of pelvic pain on your daily life and well-being. Our dedicated team of physical therapists specializes in Pelvic Floor Therapy, offering personalized solutions to address a wide range of pelvic conditions.

What is Pelvic Floor Therapy?

Pelvic Floor Therapy is a specialized branch of physical therapy designed to address a spectrum of pelvic conditions, including urinary incontinence, difficulties in urination, fecal incontinence, constipation, abdominal pain, low back/SI pain, sexual dysfunction, and more. Our skilled physical therapists focus on restoring strength, flexibility, and function to the muscles and joints in the pelvic region, enabling individuals to resume their everyday activities free from pain or fear of incontinence.

We employ a comprehensive approach, utilizing both external observation and, when indicated, internal evaluation and treatment techniques. Our therapists are trained to ensure a comfortable and respectful experience, allowing patients to choose the assessment methods that suit their comfort levels.

What Causes Pelvic Floor Issues?

Pelvic floor problems can arise from various factors, including pregnancy, childbirth, pelvic and abdominal surgeries, cancer and radiation treatments, menopause, chronic constipation, and chronic coughing. At ProFlex Physical Therapy, we address the root causes of pelvic floor issues to provide effective and lasting solutions.

What Conditions Does Pelvic Floor Therapy Treat?

The pelvic floor serves as a crucial foundation, supporting the reproductive, colorectal, and urinary tracts, including the bladder, uterus (female), prostate (male), and rectum. These intricate muscles attach to the pelvic bones, enveloping the urethra and rectum to provide vital support. Beyond structural support, they play a pivotal role in regulating bladder and bowel functions. When these muscles deviate from their optimal function, individuals may experience pain and various symptoms that disrupt their daily lives. Pelvic Floor Therapy offers a targeted solution to alleviate pain and associated symptoms, facilitating a return to normal functioning.

  • Painful urination
