Strengthen The Pelvic Floor Before and After Delivery Surgery
One benefit of this type of physical therapy is that it can help strengthen your pelvic floor muscles before and after delivery surgery. This can help your body cope with the growing weight of the baby and allow the muscles to mend more easily after the baby is born. By strengthening your pelvic floor muscles, you can also reduce or avoid stress incontinence after the pregnancy.
Reduce Need For Medication and Surgery
Most people want to avoid surgery or the need for medications if possible. With pelvic floor physical therapy, we could help you avoid the need for medication and/or surgery. After determining your pelvic issues, we can design a physical therapy plan for you to help relieve pain and treat the problem. This could help reduce your need for other forms of treatment, making the procedure easier for you in all aspects.
Address Hard to Treat Pelvic Issues
Some pelvic issues can be difficult to treat. We can incorporate pelvic floor physical therapy into your treatment plan to help target those difficult to treat pelvic issues. While physical therapy may not completely solve the problem, it can give us a starting place and help make further treatment simpler.
