Pelvic Health For Women

Pelvic Pain and Dysfunction Therapy

Pelvic floor dysfunction and pain are common throughout a woman’s lifespan. However, they are not “to be expected.” Leaking urine during strenuous activity, or while laughing, coughing or sneezing, is not normal even after childbirth. And while over 13 million American women suffer from bladder control problems, these same women will wait on average eight years before seeking help. In the meantime, it and other pelvic floor dysfunctions extract a heavy emotional and social toll.A healthy pelvic floor is achievable through treatment and allows for comfort with all pelvic functions, from postural support to elimination and sexual function. A thorough evaluation is the first step. The evaluation includes a health history, a review of your current status, and a physical examination. The physical examination includes range of motion, posture, strength and flexibility, among other tests, and may also include a detailed examination of pelvic muscles and tissues. After the evaluation, your therapist will develop a tailored care plan and work with you and your doctor for best functional outcome.
