Pelvic Health

What is Pelvic Health?

Pelvic floor muscles affect bowel, bladder, and sexual health and can contribute to pelvic floor conditions such as pain, incontinence, prolapse and constipation. Pelvic floor physical therapists evaluate your pelvic floor and abdominal muscles for weakness, tension or incoordination and help to restore optimal function with manual therapy, exercise, and a home program for self-management of symptoms.

Unfortunately, the “wait and see” approach is a common response to pelvic health issues, where people wait until symptoms become unbearable before seeking help.

Waiting and hoping that the problem will go away on its own is not a solution. By seeking help early on, individuals can regain control over their health and improve their quality of life. So, if you’re experiencing any pelvic health issues, don’t wait any longer.
