Pelvic Floor Therapy
Pelvic Floor Therapy is extremely useful in the treatment of incontinence, postpartum muscle trauma regeneration, and pelvic floor muscle dysfunction. Unfortunately, PFT is a topic less discussed because of the personal nature of vaginal and anal discomfort or dysfunction.
As these muscles are integral to supporting the body, problems stemming from the pelvic floor can lead to everything from lower back and hip pain to constipation and painful intercourse. Knowledge and depth of this field has expanded greatly in recent years, giving professional Pelvic Floor Therapists the ability to truly help those suffering in their daily lives with weak or compromised pelvic muscles. Accurately diagnosing the root of the cause of any issues and developing therapies and treatments to address these vital players in the body’s foundational support can greatly reduce the client’s discomfort and related emotional distress..
