Why do people need pelvic therapy?

People may need pelvic therapy, also known as pelvic floor therapy or pelvic physiotherapy, for various reasons related to pelvic health. Here are some common reasons why individuals may seek pelvic therapy:

people may seek pelvic Physiotherapy to address a wide range of pelvic health concerns, restore pelvic function, alleviate symptoms, improve quality of life, and promote overall well-being. The specialized care provided by pelvic therapists can be instrumental in helping individuals achieve optimal pelvic health and function.

Pelvic Pain

Pelvic pain can arise from a variety of causes, including muscle tension, nerve irritation, inflammation, or underlying medical conditions such as endometriosis or pelvic inflammatory disease. Pelvic therapy can help identify the source of pain and provide targeted interventions to alleviate discomfort and improve pelvic function.

Urinary Incontinence

Urinary incontinence refers to the involuntary leakage of urine, which can occur due to weakened pelvic floor muscles, childbirth, menopause, obesity, or neurological conditions. Pelvic therapy focuses on strengthening pelvic floor muscles, improving bladder control, and teaching behavioral techniques to manage and reduce urinary leakage.

Pelvic Organ Prolapse

Pelvic organ prolapse occurs when pelvic organs, such as the bladder, uterus, or rectum, descend or bulge into the vaginal canal due to weakened pelvic floor support. Pelvic therapy includes exercises, manual techniques, and lifestyle modifications to support pelvic organ positioning, relieve symptoms, and prevent worsening of prolapse.

Pre and Postpartum Care

During pregnancy, pelvic therapy can help prepare the pelvic floor muscles for childbirth, optimize pelvic alignment, and address common pregnancy-related issues such as pelvic girdle pain, sacroiliac joint dysfunction, and diastasis recti. Postpartum pelvic therapy focuses on restoring pelvic floor strength, addressing any pelvic floor trauma from delivery, and promoting recovery and healing.

Chronic Pelvic Pain

Chronic pelvic pain can be complex and may result from a combination of factors, including musculoskeletal dysfunction, nerve sensitization, psychological stress, and past trauma. Pelvic therapy employs a multidisciplinary approach to assess and manage chronic pelvic pain, incorporating techniques such as manual therapy, relaxation strategies, and cognitive-behavioral techniques to improve pain management and quality of life.

Sexual Dysfunction

Issues such as dyspareunia (painful intercourse), decreased sexual sensation, or sexual avoidance may be related to pelvic floor dysfunction, pelvic pain, psychological factors, or hormonal changes. Pelvic therapy addresses these concerns by addressing pelvic muscle tension, improving pelvic floor function, and providing education and counseling to enhance sexual well-being.

Bowel Dysfunction

Pelvic floor dysfunction can also impact bowel function, leading to issues such as constipation, fecal incontinence, or difficulty with bowel movements. Pelvic therapy includes techniques to improve pelvic floor coordination, rectal sensation, and bowel habits, promoting better bowel control and digestive health.
