What it is
Women’s overall pelvic health often relies on the condition of the pelvic floor muscles. Weak muscles can lead to stress incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse, while tight muscles can contribute to a host of other problems and conditions including urge incontinence, chronic pelvic pain and Vaginismus.
Your body tells you when something is wrong in your pelvic region – pain, issues with urination, and more. It’s important to listen to your body to maximize your overall pelvic health.
Pelvic Physical Therapy can improve your pelvic health by helping you strengthen and control your pelvic floor muscles. The importance of this cannot be understated, given that these muscles are responsible for these major functions: maintaining continence; allowing sexual function and pleasure; allowing support so pelvic organs stay in place; providing pain-free support to the low back; and helping the circulatory system.
