Women's Health Physical Therapy

Pelvic floor disorders are estimated to affect more than half of the women in the United States. Pelvic pain is a common problem in women presenting for physical therapy. Chronic pelvic pain is usually defined as pain below navel or in female organs that lasts 3 months or longer.

 

Multiple studies have suggested that weak, tight or high toned pelvic floor muscles or pelvic floor muscles that are tender to palpation, abnormal postural alignment, myofascial restrictions,  low back pain, core muscle weakness, sacroilliac joint dysfunction, and other musculoskeletal issues can cause pelvic pain and pelvic floor muscle dysfunction.

Women's health physical therapist will take your detailed history and evaluate your pelvic floor and abdominal muscles, joints, ligaments, fascia, and soft tissue structures. Physical therapists typically do have a little more time than doctors to do the exam and they will be very sensitive to any pain or other issues you may have.
