Be Free and In Control: The Benefits of Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy

If you don’t know what pelvic floor physical therapy is, you’re not alone. But thankfully, you’re in the right place. Turns out pelvic floor physical therapy can do wonders for your body. Many people think that physical therapists only treat pain, but weak pelvic muscles can cause so much more. You’ll likely be amazed at the numerous benefits it can offer.

However, for some reason, many people are reluctant to recognize the benefits of pelvic floor physical therapy. As practitioners, we have heard a number of common misconceptions about pelvic floor physical therapy. Such as, only women need it after childbirth, it provides no benefits to men, or that pelvic therapy can only help people with chronic pain. These couldn’t be further from the truth.

The truth is that many people can benefit from pelvic floor physical therapy. Your pelvis is the center of your body and directly impacts your ability to urinate, defecate, and enjoy sex properly. You should contact a practitioner near you if you suffer from:

Inability to Urinate or Leakage: Going too often or not enough. Men and women of all ages suffer from urinary incontinence. The problem often is exacerbated by chronic weakness in the pelvis and surrounding muscles. While there are many causes of urinary leakage, one of the best and most immediate solutions is strengthening the pelvic muscles through specifically created exercises. The ability to control, loosen, and tighten pelvic floor muscles is essential to healthy urination.

Chronic Pelvic Pain: Most people who suffer from chronic pelvic pain also suffer from some type of musculoskeletal imbalance in the pelvic area. Strengthening and aligning your pelvic floor can be essential to elevating this pain.

Constipation: Constipation is nothing to be ashamed about. It is one of the most common medical issues in the United States. Because we spend the majority of our days sitting, our strength and coordination in our pelvic floor is often weak.

Excessive Bloating: If you suffer from endometriosis and your pelvic floor is too weak to support your core, belly, and upper body, your stomach may “bloat” and push out.

Pelvic Organ Prolapse: Often a symptom of high stress situations, such as childbirth or heavy lifting of children, a prolapse occurs when a pelvic organ is pushed out of place because of weak pelvic muscles.

But this is just the short list, pelvic floor physical therapy can also help those who suffer from back pain, uncomfortable sex, pain from feminine hygiene products, and much more. If you suffer from any of conditions or simply have pain in your pelvic area, pelvic floor physical therapy may be the solution you’ve been waiting for.
