Conditions such as urinary or fecal incontinence, voiding dysfunction, prenatal, postpartum, or postoperative pelvic pain, painful intercourse, constipation, and urinary retention can be treated with physical therapy. Lower back and core muscle problems often occur along with or as a result of these conditions. The application of physical therapy has revolutionized the treatment of pelvic floor disorders providing relief to many long-suffering women. Treatments such as behavioral therapy, computerized biofeedback, vaginal cones, tissue massage and trigger point release, TENS and electrical stimulation are used by our physical therapist to treat these and other pelvic floor problems.

Here's what you need to know. - A report by Dr. Owens
Pelvic Floor and Core Exercise is an important part of pelvic floor physical therapy. Muscle weakness, tightness, spasm and /or imbalances can make it difficult for you to control your bladder or bowel, or it may be a cause of pelvic pain. Our physical therapist will identify your specific problem areas and design an individualized home exercise program to correct them. You will be expected to perform the exercise daily at home and will be progressed each time you see the therapist, if you are compliant with the home program.
