What We Treat
Pelvic floor therapy for postpartum women is a specialized form of physical therapy that focuses on addressing the changes and challenges that occur in the pelvic floor muscles during and after pregnancy.
During pregnancy, the pelvic floor muscles can stretch, weaken, or become tight and tense trying to accommodate the growing baby and prepare for delivery. After delivery, the muscles can be further weakened, damaged, or become more tense and tight leading to symptoms such as urinary or fecal incontinence, pelvic pain, pelvic organ prolapse, and painful intercourse.
Pelvic floor therapy for postpartum women typically involves a combination of exercises, manual therapy, and education to help women restore strength, function, and control to their pelvic floor muscles.
