Pelvic Floor Dysfunction

Pelvic Floor Dysfunction encompasses many different disorders and symptoms. As physical therapists, we treat the pelvic floor muscles, which compose the structure of the pelvic girdle (bones, joints and ligaments) as well as the connective tissue and musculature of the abdominal wall. Weaknesses in the structures of the pelvic girdle may cause:

  • urinary or fecal incontinence
  • back pain
  • sacroiliac joint
  • hip pain

On the flip side, if those muscles and structures within the pelvic girdle are unable to relax properly, they may cause a variety of symptoms and disorders like:

  • pelvic pain
  • constipation
  • back pain
  • hip pain

During pregnancy the pelvic girdle is truly challenged and then under great stress during labor, which can also cause a variety of symptoms. As physical therapists trained in evaluating and treating the pelvic girdle, we can get to the bottom of what is causing your symptoms and restore balance to these structures.
