Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy addresses pain, weakness, and dysfunction in the pelvic floor muscles. The pelvic floor refers to the muscles that support the reproductive and urinary tract, including your bladder, uterus, vagina, and rectum. These muscles attach to your pelvis to your spine and are responsible for your sexual, bladder, and bladder function.
Pelvic floor physical therapy focuses treatment on pelvic floor dysfunction and the symptoms so often associated with it. Some conditions that improved with pelvic floor physical therapy are:
- Urinary incontinence
- Urinary frequency/urgency
- Difficulty stopping or starting urinating

- Diastasis Recti
- Painful Bladder Syndrome
A pelvic floor physical therapy evaluation may include of both external and internal testing of the pelvic floor musculature to determine the best plan of care to address your symptoms.
