Pelvic health physical therapy is really no different from physical therapy for other musculoskeletal issues. The goal is to restore function and decrease pain! The pelvic floor is a set of muscles that are important for normal function with all activities, including athletics. They are also essential for bowel/bladder function and intimacy. Therapists who specialize in pelvic health can treat issues such as: pelvic pain, pain with intercourse (dyspareunia), vaginismus, vulvodynia, urge or stress incontinence (leaking), urinary frequency, constipation, pre or post-natal care, and low back pain.
