Pelvic floor physical therapy can help with any musculoskeletal dysfunction in the pelvis, low back, and sacroiliac joint.
Let’s talk for a minute about the diagnosis of “pelvic floor dysfunction”. It’s the most generic diagnostic description I’ve ever heard. Imagine if someone told you you had “leg dysfunction”… You’d ask, “What part of my leg? What is the dysfunction?” All it means is that something isn’t working as it should be in the pelvic floor, which you already knew! That’s why you already sought care! (End rant).
Pelvic floor “dysfunction” can mean anything from abnormal sensations (pain, discomfort, or lack of sensation), to prolapses, unwanted leaking of urine or feces, urinary frequency/urgency, and difficulty urinating or having a bowel movement.
These all sound pretty serious, but the good news is that pelvic floor physical therapy can help! You are not doomed to live your life like this. And most importantly, you are not alone. 75% of women experience some type of pelvic floor dysfunction at some point in their lifetime. And we don’t talk about it. Or if we do talk about it, we’re dismissed and told it’s normal.
Guess what? Common doesn’t mean normal. Are you tired of feeling this way? Let’s get you better.
