Pelvic Floor Health

The pelvic floor is a collection of muscles that hold your pelvic organs in place. These muscles are responsible for preventing incontinence and prolapse, and they are important in sexual function.

As many women age, have children, or strain these muscles in any way, the muscles can weaken and cause pelvic pain and dysfunction. Physical therapy teaches women how to strengthen their pelvic floor to alleviate pain, treat dysfunction, and more.

What is Pelvic Organ Prolapse?

Studies show that around 50% of women experience pelvic organ prolapse.*  Pelvic organ prolapse (POP) occurs when one or more of your pelvic organs drop from their normal position. There are five different types of POP—occurring with the bladder, rectum, intestines, uterus, and vagina—each with varying levels of severity. This can lead to symptoms like added pressure in the bladder, incontinence, lower back pain, and pain during intercourse.

While many women hesitate to speak up about these issues, it’s an extremely common condition that can be linked to childbirth, menopause, genetics, and some related chronic conditions. If you are experiencing POP, pelvic floor therapy is a great way to learn exercises and skills to reduce your symptoms.

As your treatment progresses, we may recommend surgeries to correct the organ prolapse if necessary. Your provider will offer recommendations based on your needs.

Do I Need Pelvic Floor Therapy?

While some women experience no signs or symptoms of pelvic floor dysfunction, there are a few signs that indicate you may benefit from pelvic floor therapy:

  • The feeling of pelvic pressure or fullness
  • Urinary incontinence and leaking
  • Difficulty fully emptying the bladder
  • Problems with bowel movements
  • Problems inserting tampons or applicators

You know your body best, so even if you notice something small, it’s important to discuss it with your healthcare provider. We are here to listen and ensure you receive the right care.
