Pelvic Health

You may need Pelvic Floor Therapy
and don’t know it.

Are you experiencing incontinence or leaking? Painful urination? Painful intercourse? Lower back and hip pain?
Do you have difficulty transitioning from lying down to sitting up? Are you pregnant or have just given birth?

You may be experiencing a weakening or excessive tightness of your pelvic floor. Elizabeth Rogers Pilates & Physical Therapy, PLLC offers a Pelvic Health Program to help you rehabilitate your pelvic floor.

 

How do I know that I have pelvic floor dysfunction?
Many people suffer from pelvic dysfunction and are not aware of it. Symptoms include:

  • Urinary urgency
  • Urinary incontinence or leaking
  • Fecal incontinence or leaking
  • Constipation
  • Difficulty transitioning from lying down to sitting up
  • Feeling of fullness in your pelvic area
  • Feeling of weakness or tightness in your lower back, hips, groin, sides of the legs
  • Painful intercourse
  • C-section scarring

What can cause pelvic dysfunction?
The pelvic floor is a group of muscles that holds the pelvic organs (the vagina, bladder, rectum or uterus, in a woman). When these muscles become weak or too tight, they can cause low back, hip or pelvic pain and/or incontinence. Pregnancy, childbirth, c-section, poor posture, advanced age, high impact sports (running), cancer treatments, pelvic or urogenital surgery are all risk factors for pelvic dysfunction.

 

What can be done?
We take a non-surgical approach for strengthening and releasing the pelvic floor and restoring proper movement with manual therapy, modalities, patient education and therapeutic exercises.

 

What can I expect?
First we will perform an examination and test specific muscles to assess strength deficits, coordination concerns, tight muscles, tender points and myofascial restrictions. We will develop a treatment plan for you that includes independent, take-home exercises that will empower you to prevent further impairments down the road.
