Pelvic health is directly related to common disorders such as incontinence. Franciscan Health physical therapists work with patients one-one-one for specialized pelvic rehabilitation to improve muscle strength and coordination.
Physical therapy can make a significant difference in those who often suffer in silence from disorders of the pelvic floor - the muscles, ligaments, connective tissue and nerves that support normal bladder and bowel function and pelvic health.
A sudden sneeze, a hearty laugh, a quick cough are not usually causes for concern. But if you are one of millions of Americans suffering from incontinence, these everyday actions can trigger an embarrassing reaction that severely diminishes your quality of life.
Pelvic floor problems can be frustrating, confusing and sometimes even embarrassing. Physical therapy can help strengthen and condition your pelvic muscles to reduce or even eliminate these problems.
Our physical therapists will partner with you to develop a unique and individualized treatment program, depending on the findings of both your doctor and therapist. Through tailored physical therapy and a concerned focus on your physical and emotional well-being, our physical therapists provide support and encouragement to help you regain control.
If you have been diagnosed with one or more of the common conditions below, or if you are experiencing any of these symptoms, please talk with your doctor and see if physical therapy might be right for you.
