Are You Suffering in Silence?
Pelvic floor therapy is recommended as a first-time remedy for many disorders of the pelvic region. Both men and women with weakness in pelvic floor muscles can perform exercises to strengthen the pelvic floor and enhance bladder and bowel control. Specifically, a physician will refer a patient for therapy if the pelvic floor dysfunction is suspected to have a neuromuscular cause.
The dysfunction may result from aging, illness, childbirth, surgery, or other conditions and may coexist with other genitourinary problems, such as urinary incontinence, fecal incontinence, bladder emptying problems, and constipation. Physical Therapy is referred for pelvic floor therapy when someone experiences incontinence, chronic pelvic pain, painful intercourse, and difficulty with urination or bowel movements.
