Pelvic Floor physical therapy is a specialized form of treatment aimed to address dsyfunctions of the pelvic floor. The pelvic floor is a group of muscles that run from the pubic bone to the tailbone which help to support the internal organs and assist in sexual, bladder, and bowel functions. Reasons for treatment include urinary incontinence, painful bladder syndrome, painful sex, postpartum care, diastisis recti, pelvic organ prolapse, coccyx/tailbone pain, vaginal or anal pain, pelvic floor muscle spasms, low back pain, or hip/groin pain.
Some people never receive a diagnosis before coming to physical therapy and simply present with symptoms. This is not a problem, as our therapist will be able to evaluate and treat based on your presentation and will refer you to an MD if she deems necessary. Many symptoms overlap with other orthopedic issues and in order for a comprehensive and effective treatment, it’s imperative to get to the root of the problem. With experience as an orthopedic physical therapist for over 6 years, Diana is confident she can provide the care it takes to solve the complexities of some of these issues.
