You don’t have to “Just live with it”

While these conditions are common, they are not normal, yet many people are told they will just have to live with these problems. People often seek help for years without success or answers. Pelvic Health Physical Therapists treat these conditions by examining the muscles of the pelvic floor as well as looking at the “bigger picture” to see what other factors may be adding to your dysfunction. Treatment focuses on training the pelvic floor muscles to relax or get stronger, working on core strength, and extensive education on many topics from anatomy to diet and exercise.
