What is Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy?

Pelvic floor physical therapy is a specialized branch of physical therapy that focuses on the muscles, ligaments, and connective tissues of the pelvic floor. The pelvic floor is a group of muscles located at the base of the pelvis, extending from the pubic bone to the tailbone. These muscles play a crucial role in supporting the pelvic organs, including the bladder, uterus, and rectum. Pelvic floor physical therapy is often recommended for individuals, both men and women, who experience dysfunction or pain in the pelvic region.

During pelvic floor physical therapy, a trained physical therapist works with the patient to assess the pelvic floor muscles and identify any areas of dysfunction. The therapist may use a combination of manual techniques, biofeedback, and specific exercises to address muscle imbalances, weakness, or tension in the pelvic floor. Treatment plans are tailored to the individual’s needs and may include exercises to strengthen or relax the pelvic floor muscles, education on proper posture and body mechanics, and strategies for managing symptoms. The goal is to improve the function and coordination of the pelvic floor muscles, alleviate pain, and enhance overall pelvic health.

Patients may also be educated on lifestyle modifications and behavioral strategies to promote better pelvic floor function. Pelvic floor physical therapy is a conservative and non-invasive approach that can be highly effective in addressing a variety of pelvic floor disorders. It is essential for individuals experiencing pelvic floor issues to consult with a healthcare professional to determine the most appropriate course of treatment.
