Pelvic Floor Therapy

Our specially trained physical therapists reach out with compassion and understanding to patients with incontinence and pelvic floor muscle issues.

Urinary incontinence is a loss of bladder control that can result in minor, occasional leaking to uncontrollable wetting. The most common types are stress incontinence and urge incontinence. Stress incontinence happens when urine leaks through a weakened pelvic floor muscle as an individual laughs, coughs, exercises or lifts a heavy object. Those with urge incontinence leak when they need to use the restroom and cannot get there fast enough.

Pelvic floor physical therapy helps to correct pelvic floor muscle dysfunction that contributes to bladder and bowel symptoms and pelvic pain. By strengthening the pelvic floor muscles through exercises, we can help you improve the ability to manage bladder and bowels, decrease pelvic pain, and regain control and improve the quality of your life.
