Pelvic Floor Therapy

Pelvic floor therapy is a specialized form of physical therapy focused on nurturing the health and strength of the pelvic floor muscles. Pelvic Floor dysfunction refers to a condition where the muscles of the pelvic floor, crucial for supporting the pelvic organs, experience weakness, tightness, or impaired function. This common issue can lead to various uncomfortable symptoms affecting your daily life

  • Hormonal Changes: Fluctuations in hormones, especially relaxin, can affect the elasticity of connective tissues, potentially leading to pelvic floor issues.
  • Uterine Pressure: The expanding uterus exerts pressure on the pelvic floor muscles, influencing their function and stability.
  • Childbirth Impact: The process of childbirth, especially in cases of multiple pregnancies or difficult deliveries, can contribute to the weakening of the pelvic floor.

What Causes Pelvic Floor Dysfunction?

Causes of Pelvic Floor Issues During Pregnancy

Pregnancy is a beautiful and transformative journey, but it can also bring about changes in the pelvic floor that may lead to dysfunction. As your body gracefully accommodates the growth of your baby, the pelvic floor muscles undergo significant stress and strain. Factors such as hormonal shifts, the weight of the growing uterus, and the demands of childbirth contribute to the vulnerability of these crucial muscles.

Signs and Symptoms of Pelvic Floor Dysfunction:

  • Incontinence

Increased urgency or leakage during activities like coughing, sneezing, or physical exertion.

  • Pelvic Pain

Discomfort or pain in the pelvic region, affecting daily activities and overall well-being.

  • Pain During Intercourse: 

Discomfort or pain specifically during intimacy, indicating potential pelvic floor concerns.

  •  Pelvic Organ Prolapse

Sensation of pelvic pressure or a feeling of fullness, signaling the possibility of pelvic floor issues.

  • Altered Bowel Habits:

Changes in bowel movements or difficulty controlling bowel function.
