Common Pelvic Rehab Needs

Bowel and Bladder
According to the International Continence Society, 80 percent of people with urinary incontinence can be greatly improved or cured with conservative treatment including Physical Therapy. Our Physical Therapists will provide instruction on specific techniques and exercises to retrain the pelvic muscles and educate on healthy bowel and bladder habits.

Pelvic Pain
More than 50 percent of women with pelvic pain report limiting their daily activities one or more days of the month and 90 percent of them report pain with intercourse. Pelvic pain is often associated with scar tissue, muscle or joint restrictions in the pelvic region and can occur in men as well. Our Physical Therapists will manually treat these dysfunctions as well as educate on relaxation and stress management techniques.

Pregnancy and Postpartum
Research shows that 75 percent of all pregnant women experience back pain. They may also experience injury during childbirth. Our Physical Therapists are specially trained to treat these issues in this special population.
