Pelvic Floor Therapy in Fort Lauderdale
What is Pelvic Floor Therapy?
Pelvic floor therapy, also known as pelvic floor rehabilitation, is a type of physical therapy that focuses on the muscles, ligaments, and connective tissues that support the pelvic organs. These muscles, known as the pelvic floor muscles, are responsible for bladder and bowel control, sexual function, and the stability of the lower back and hips.
Pelvic floor therapy is typically recommended for individuals who are experiencing pain or dysfunction in the pelvic region, such as incontinence, urinary urgency or frequency, painful intercourse, pelvic pain, or lower back pain. These conditions can occur as a result of pregnancy, childbirth, surgery, aging, or other factors.
We can help!
During a pelvic floor therapy session, Dr. Lindsay Davis will conduct an evaluation of the pelvic floor muscles and assess their strength, flexibility, and coordination. This may involve a pelvic exam, including an internal examination of the vagina or rectum.
Based on the evaluation, Dr. Davis will design an individualized treatment plan that may include a combination of exercises, stretches, massage, and biofeedback techniques. These exercises and techniques are designed to improve the strength, flexibility, and coordination of the pelvic floor muscles, as well as reduce pain and discomfort.
Pelvic floor therapy is effective in reducing symptoms of incontinence, urgency, and pelvic pain. It may also be used as a preventive measure for individuals who are at risk of developing these conditions, such as pregnant women.
