How Pelvic Physical Therapy Can Help You Return to What You Love

Are you avoiding social activities due to pelvic pain? Is your hip or low back pain preventing you from returning to the gym? Do you experience urinary leakage with exercise? Do you feel pressure in your stomach or have abdominal pain? Do you have a history of hernias or a diastasis recti? Do you experience bloating or constipation? Do you have pain with sex?

Pelvic physical therapy is the answer to providing the relief you need. Let us help you get back to doing the things you love.

Hip/Groin/Coccyx/Low Back Pain is very common and usually becomes chronic because it is not properly assessed. Since the pelvis is located so closely to your low back and hips, it is usually the missing link in many diagnoses. Your deep hip rotator muscles lie next to your pelvic floor, so good hip movement is important to decrease pain. Your pelvic and gluteal muscles attach to your tailbone. Restriction in theses muscles may also cause what is known as coccyx pain which often limits your tolerance to sitting.

Chronic pelvic pain typically occurs due to previous orthopedic injuries, pregnancies, surgeries, nerve entrapment, postural dysfunction, cancers, or weaknesses throughout your body. By introducing practices that allow the pelvic muscles to relax and respond with less intensity, pain eventually decreases and function is restored.

Constipation affects babies, children, adolescents, adults, and geriatrics. It occurs when you do not have a healthy daily bowel movement, which can increase weight and pressure in your stomach. It also causes low back, hip, pelvic pain, abdominal bloating, and bladder discomfort. Often past abdominal surgeries may result in bowel issues due to internal adhesions and scars. This too can lead to abdominal pain, changes in bowel movements, and bloating.

Incontinence/Prolapse can affect anyone and usually occurs due to increased abdominal pressure and weakened pelvic floor muscles. Incontinence can occur during strenuous activities such as exercising, lifting your children, running, and even coughing or sneezing. Prolapse occurs when your pelvic organs start to drop, which can cause difficulty with urinating as well as pelvic pressure with everyday activities.

Painful sex can happen at any stage of life and is easily treated with physical therapy. There are various causes for this pain and finding the cause will allow for proper treatment and an overall improvement in symptoms. Typically, this occurs with changes in our hormones due to menopause or even from gynecological cancers. For gentlemen, pain with sex may occur due to tightness in muscles within the hip, low back, abdominal or pelvic region.

Pre/Post-Partum care is crucial to have less pain during pregnancy and delivery. Proper training of the low back, hips, and pelvic floor can help prevent injury to muscles. Post delivery addresses C-section scars and abdominal weakness. In addition to our breast feeding moms, Blocked milk ducts may be incredibly uncomfortable and disrupt nourishing your child. This is yet another area physical therapy is instrumental in freeing any blockages.

Diastasis recti can occur in men and women who have weakened abdominal support, but is most common in post-partum women due to stretching of the stomach during pregnancy. When this stomach separation doesn’t heal, it can cause bulging or low back pain, making working out difficult.
