Women's Pelvic Health Issues at Saunders Therapy Centers

Are you struggling with a leaky bladder, bloating, painful intercourse, or other pain in the pelvis that is limiting you at home, limiting you at work or affecting your personal relationships? Many people don’t realize that physical therapy treatment is an option. Pelvic floor musculoskeletal disorders are common in women and too often go unrecognized during the evaluation of pelvic pain syndromes. Acute or chronic pelvic pain is often due to musculoskeletal disorders, which may go unrecognized during a traditional pelvic examination. Proper evaluation facilitates the diagnosis of spasm or trigger points, and physical therapy often achieves a major improvement in quality of life. At Saunders Therapy Centers, we have specially trained pelvic health physical therapists who can help.

A variety of Women's Pelvic Health Issues are treated at Saunders Therapy Centers including:

  • Pain with Pregnancy
  • Post-partum pain
  • Urinary  incontinence, urgency or frequency
  • Bowel incontinence
  • Constipation
  • Low back and mid back pain
  • Sacroiliac (SI) pain
  • Sciatica (leg pain)
  • Pain with penetration or intercourse
  • Painful Scars or adhesions
  • Post pelvic or abdominal surgery pain
  • Coccyx (tailbone) pain
  • Vestibulitis
  • Interstitial Cystitis
  • Pain from endometriosis
  • Abdominal pain
  • Pelvic Pain
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome
  • Sexual health

What to Expect at Physical Therapy:

Our therapist will complete a thorough exam in order to establish a plan of care that both you and your therapist agree will help you reach your goals.

Musculoskeletal Evaluation

Your exam will include an assessment of your posture, muscle flexibility and strength, pelvic and lumbar symmetry, and a pelvic floor muscle exam if appropriate.

Treatment

  • Manual Therapy: Hands on techniques to restore pelvic and lumbar symmetry, reduce muscle tension, increase flexibility, improve joint mobility, and address scar tissue adhesions.
  • Functional Re-training: Restore correct posture and body mechanics, correct faulty movement patterns, and correct the coordination of abdominal and pelvic floor muscles.
  • Exercise Instruction: Exercises for home to build strength, improve flexibility, improve relaxation in general or for the pelvic floor muscles, and improve bowel and bladder habits.
  • Modalities: Biofeedback to assist with exercises or relaxation training. Electrical stimulation to facilitate a pelvic floor muscle contraction or to assist with pain control.

Expected Outcomes: Our goals are to treat incontinence in 3-6 visits, pregnancy or post-partum pain in 3-6 visits, and pelvic pain in 6-9 visits.
