Pelvic floor physical therapy is a type of therapy that focuses on strengthening and rehabilitating the muscles of the pelvic floor.
It can be helpful in improving symptoms such as incontinence, as well as in promoting overall pelvic health.
Pelvic floor physical therapy may involve a variety of techniques, including exercises to strengthen and coordinate the muscles of the pelvic floor, manual therapy to improve muscle function and mobility, and education on proper body mechanics and lifestyle changes to support pelvic health.
If you are experiencing symptoms such as incontinence, pain during intercourse, or low back pain after childbirth, it is important to talk to your doctor about the possibility of pelvic floor physical therapy.
A physical therapist who is trained in pelvic floor rehabilitation can provide a thorough evaluation and develop a treatment plan to address your specific needs and goals.
