PELVIC FLOOR PHYSICAL THERAPY
Pelvic floor disorders come in many forms. The prevalence of pelvic floor disorder increases with pregnancy and age. However, chronic constipation and cough can also make one more prone to pelvic floor disorders. Anyone with imbalance in core and hip muscles strength have increased chances of experiencing pelvic floor dysfunction.
The following are some of the pelvic floor disorders we treat at Symbiotic Wellness:
Urinary incontinence (pelvic floor muscle (PFM) weakness)
Pelvic pain, pelvic pressure, painful intercourse (PFM tightness)
Pelvic organ prolapse. (PFM weakness)
Many people suffer in silence with these conditions, but you don’t need to. It's important to talk with your primary care physician if you are suffering from these conditions, as one of the best conservative treatments for these issues is pelvic floor physical therapy (PFPT). Pelvic floor physical therapists are physical therapists with special training. They work with pelvic floor muscles and can do pelvic exams. In the state of Tennessee, physical therapists have direct access and one can reach out to a physical therapist for assessment without a referral from a physician. At Symbiotic Wellness we offer this specialized physical therapy.
