What is Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy?

Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy is a specialty focusing on the area from the diaphragm to the pelvis.

 

The pelvic floor muscles (PFM) are located at the base of your pelvis spreading across your two sit bones and front to back from your pubic bone and your tailbone.

 

Functions include:

  • Supports pelvic organs & childbirth

  • Ability to control and release urine, feces, and gas

  • Aide in sexual function

  • Assists the diaphragm and core with breathing

If these muscles become weak, tight, discoordinated, it can lead to pelvic floor dysfunction.

Individualized treatment strategies include: skilled exercise prescription, manual therapy techniques, behavioral training, functional training, posture awareness, a LOT of education, and so much more.

"I lot of people think pelvic floor conditions are normal. They may be common but they are NOT normal."
