What is Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy?

As women, we often forget the importance of connecting with our bodies and the natural world around us. Our busy lives and societal pressures can make it easy to lose touch with our intuition and the natural rhythms of our bodies. However, pelvic floor physical therapy is an excellent way to reconnect with your body and nature. In this blog post, we’ll explore what you can expect from pelvic floor physical therapy and how it can help you get in touch with your body.

Pelvic floor physical therapy is a type of therapy that focuses on the muscles, ligaments, and connective tissues in the pelvic region. These muscles and tissues play a crucial role in supporting your pelvic organs, including your bladder, uterus, and rectum. When these muscles are weak or tight, it can lead to a variety of problems, including incontinence, pelvic pain, and sexual dysfunction.

Benefits of pelvic floor physical therapy Include:

Improved bladder control: Strengthening the pelvic floor muscles can help improve bladder control and reduce the risk of urinary incontinence.

Reduced pelvic pain: Pelvic floor physical therapy can help reduce pelvic pain caused by conditions such as endometriosis, fibroids, and pelvic inflammatory disease.

Better sexual function: You can improve sexual function by increasing blood flow to the pelvic region and improving muscle tone and flexibility.

Faster recovery after childbirth: Women can recover more quickly after childbirth by strengthening the pelvic floor muscles and reducing the risk of complications such as incontinence and prolapse.

Improved quality of life: By addressing pelvic floor issues, you can improve your quality of life by reducing pain, improving bladder control, and enhancing sexual function.

What to Expect During your session:

During your first session, you can expect to undergo a thorough evaluation. This will include a review of your medical history, birth history, a physical examination, and an assessment of your pelvic floor muscles. Your physical therapist will ask you questions about your symptoms, your daily routine, and your overall health. They will then develop a personalized treatment plan for you, which may include exercises to strengthen your pelvic floor muscles, stretches to increase flexibility, and biofeedback techniques to help you better understand your body. Your physical therapist may also recommend lifestyle changes, such as improving your posture, reducing stress, and dietary modifications.

Throughout your sessions, your physical therapist will work with you to develop a better understanding of your body and how it works. This includes educating you about the role of your pelvic floor muscles in supporting your pelvic organs and how to maintain optimal pelvic health. By connecting with your body in this way, you will begin to develop a greater sense of intuition and a deeper connection with nature.

As you progress through your sessions, you may notice improvements in your symptoms and an overall sense of well-being. You may also find that you feel more connected to your body and the natural world around you. By strengthening your pelvic floor muscles and improving your pelvic health, you are taking an important step towards living a more fulfilling life.
