Thrive Physical Therapy’s program in Pelvic Health emphasizes an individual approach and team relationship with doctors to treat patients with various external pelvic floor diagnosis and pelvic pain. Our physical therapists have vast experience in orthopedics and pelvic floor muscle rehabilitation and will work hard to determine the cause of your pain and dysfunction and teach you independent ways to manage your condition and maximize your quality of life.
Pelvic floor physical therapists might use several techniques:
Education- Patients may need to learn more about their pelvic anatomy and how different components work alone and together. They may also need to learn how habits or hygiene affect their symptoms.
Pelvic floor exercises- Patients are taught how to contract and relax pelvic floor muscles in relation to other muscles. They are also taught breathing and timing techniques to make the exercises more effective. Such exercises can stretch tight muscles, strengthen weak ones, and improve flexibility.
Manual therapy- A physical therapist may use hands-on massage or stretching to help with posture, blood circulation, and mobility.
