How We Can Help

Pelvic floor dysfunction (PFD) is a common issue affecting millions of women worldwide. It occurs when the muscles, ligaments, and connective tissue that support the pelvic organs become weak, tight, or damaged. Common symptoms include urinary incontinence, pelvic pain, sexual dysfunction, and organ prolapse. Physical therapy can play a crucial role in helping women manage and overcome these challenges.

  1. Pelvic floor muscle exercises: Pelvic floor muscle exercises, also known as Kegel exercises, are essential for strengthening and retraining the pelvic floor muscles. A physical therapist can help women identify and isolate the correct muscles to perform these exercises effectively, and develop a personalized exercise plan.

  2. Biofeedback: Biofeedback is a technique used to help women gain awareness and control over their pelvic floor muscles. Sensors are placed on the skin to monitor muscle activity, with the information displayed on a screen. A physical therapist guides the woman through exercises, using the biofeedback data to improve muscle control and coordination.

  3. Manual therapy: Physical therapists can use manual techniques, such as myofascial release and trigger point therapy, to alleviate pain and tension in the pelvic floor muscles. This can help improve muscle flexibility and function, as well as reduce discomfort.

  4. Posture and body mechanics education: Poor posture and incorrect body mechanics can contribute to pelvic floor dysfunction. A physical therapist can evaluate a woman's posture and movement patterns, providing guidance on how to make necessary adjustments that can help alleviate symptoms and prevent future issues.

  5. Relaxation techniques: Stress and anxiety can contribute to pelvic floor dysfunction, causing muscles to become tense and overactive. Physical therapists can teach relaxation techniques, such as diaphragmatic breathing and progressive muscle relaxation, to help women manage stress and reduce muscle tension.

  6. Functional retraining: Functional retraining involves teaching women how to use their pelvic floor muscles correctly during everyday activities, such as lifting, coughing, and exercising. This can help prevent injury and reduce symptoms of pelvic floor dysfunction.

  7. Electrical stimulation: In some cases, a physical therapist may use electrical stimulation to help women improve pelvic floor muscle control. A small electrical current is delivered to the muscles through electrodes, which can help enhance muscle contractions and retrain the muscles to function more effectively.

  8. Pre- and post-natal care: Physical therapy can be particularly beneficial for women during pregnancy and after childbirth. A physical therapist can provide guidance on safe exercises and techniques to maintain pelvic floor strength, help manage pregnancy-related pain, and assist in postpartum recovery.

Physical therapy is a non-invasive, conservative treatment option for women experiencing pelvic floor dysfunction. By working closely with a skilled physical therapist, women can learn how to improve their pelvic floor muscle strength, control, and coordination, ultimately leading to a better quality of life.
