Pelvic Floor Dysfunction

Pelvic Floor

There is no need to feel embarrassed or hopeless about pain down under! Although not often spoken about pelvic pain, incontinence and bowel disorders affect women and men at all ages. The treatment offered by trained physical therapists can improve or cure these conditions. It is designed to empower you to “help yourself.”

Sexual Dysfunction

Painful intercourse is not as uncommon as you might think. Painful orgasm, painful penetration, recurring urinary tract or yeast infection symptoms, are conditions that can be treated. We have successfully helped thousands of patients get back to normal, healthy sex lives with their partners.

Constipation

Chronic constipation which includes not having daily bowel movements (or at least every other day) can result in abdominal or pelvic pain. Pelvic floor therapists have a program of massage, exercise, dietary recommendations and relaxation techniques that is highly effective in treating the symptoms of constipation.
