What is Pelvic Physical Therapy?

Pelvic muscles can require the same type of rehabilitation as any other muscle in your body. The techniques employed by physical therapists for pelvic pain or dysfunction include treatment modalities similar to those for back pain or joint rehabilitation such as -

  • taking a detailed history

  • evaluating posture

  • stretching the muscles

  • applying manual massage

  • electrical stimulation

  • exercises to increase control and strength of the pelvic floor

  • pelvic stability training

  • having patients keep diaries of pain or incontinence

  • instructing the patient in behavior or voiding modifications.

 

This list is not all-inclusive, but specialized physical therapy can contribute much toward improving the function and condition of a patient's pelvic floor.​

Pelvic floor therapists provide a comprehensive holistic approach to care that integrates treatment through entire pelvic region as well as for nervous system, breathing and daily movements. Through manual therapy, exercises and other modalities, they treat pelvic floor muscles ( internally and externally at the vagina and anorectal areas) , abdomen, bony pelvis, lower back and tailbone.

 

Gynecologic problems that can benefit from physical therapy can be divided into two broad categories:

  1. disorders of pelvic pain

    • chronic pelvic pain

    • dyspareunia

    • vestibulitis

    • vulvodynia

  2. disorders of pelvic function

  • pelvic organ prolapse

  • overactive bladder

  • urinary urgency incontinence and overactive bladder

  • stress urinary incontinence, and fecal incontinence
