Pelvic Floor Therapy


Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy

Kinetik has recently expanded our services to include pelvic floor therapy. Pelvic floor physical therapy can help those who are experiencing pelvic floor dysfunction.

 

You may benefit from pelvic floor rehab if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms:

  • Accidentally leaking urine when you laugh, cough, exercise, or sneeze
  • Needing to get to the toilet quickly and not making it there in time
  • Finding it difficult to relieve your bladder or bowels
  • If you are planning on having or you have recently had a baby and need help with pregnancy and postpartum recovery
  • If you have been experiencing testicular or penile pain
  • If you are experiencing pain during sex
  • The presence of a prolapse? (For women this may be felt as a bulge in the vagina, or for men this may be felt in the rectum)
  • If you are experiencing pain in your lower back, hips, or pelvic area

 

If you have any of these symptoms, coming to see a pelvic floor therapist will help you:

  • Experience pain relief, more urinary control, as well as improvement in the function of your pelvic floor muscles
  • Design a program personalized to help alleviate your pelvic discomfort
  • Get assistance with learning a specialized exercise and self-care program
  • Restore the health and wellness of your whole body
  • Have access to other specialized therapy services available at our location

 

When coming in for an initial assessment there are a few things you can expect to happen. Our physical therapist that is trained in working with pelvic floor dysfunction will perform a subjective and physical assessment. Because the pelvic muscles are internal muscles, an internal exam must be used to assess the function and structure of the pelvic floor in order to develop an exercise program that meets your specific needs.
