Pelvic Health: It's Not Just For Moms (But Moms, You Need This Too!)




Your pelvic floor is a group of muscles that plays a critical role in bladder and bowel control, sexual function, and overall core stability. It's no exaggeration to say a healthy pelvic floor can make a big difference in your overall quality of life.

Unfortunately, problems with the pelvic floor are surprisingly common. These can arise from pregnancy, childbirth, surgery, aging, or even chronic coughing or straining.


What Can Pelvic Health Physical Therapy Do?

Pelvic health physical therapists are experts in evaluating and treating pelvic floor dysfunction. That's a fancy way of saying they know all about the muscles, tissues, and nerves that affect so many essential functions.

To get the lowdown on what these experts can do, we tapped our own Carla Palmer, a pelvic health physical therapist passionate about helping people regain comfort and control.

Here's a sneak peek at some topics she covers:

  • Common symptoms of pelvic floor dysfunction. Don't assume things like leaking urine or painful intercourse are just a normal part of life!

  • Treatment options for pelvic floor problems. It's more than just Kegels!

Beyond Kegels: The Benefits of Specialized Care

While those exercises can be helpful, many people with pelvic floor issues need more tailored attention. A skilled pelvic health PT can:

  • Help you learn to correctly engage your pelvic floor muscles.

  • Design an exercise plan that specifically addresses your weakness or tightness

  • Utilize techniques like biofeedback and manual therapy for improved results.

You Don't Have To Live With This!
