Pelvic Muscle Therapy

Pelvic Muscle Therapy is a treatment approach that uses the principles of physical therapy to provide a structured, effective and safe reconditioning of pelvic floor muscles. The goal of the treatment is to improve the strength and function of pelvic floor muscles and alleviate pain, weakness and dysfunction in the muscles. During the treatment, a skilled physical therapist accesses the muscles through the rectum or vagina and makes manipulations on them to improve their strength and functioning. The therapist may either stretch the muscles if they are short and contracted or apply resistance to improve strength if they weak and dysfunctional.
Pelvic floor physical therapy is recommended as first-line remedy for many disorders of the pelvic region. Both men and women with weakness in pelvic floor muscles can perform exercises to strengthen the floor and enhance bladder and bowel control.
