Pelvic Floor Therapy WHAT IS PELVIC FLOOR REHAB?
PELVIC FLOOR PHYSICAL THERAPISTS are doctors specially trained to rehabilitate the pelvic floor muscles and address unique pathologies and dysfunctions.
The pelvic floor muscles may become weak, tight or spastic due to disuse, surgery or trauma.
PELVIC FLOOR REHABILITATION includes treatment for both men and women with:
•Urinary or fecal incontinence
•Urgency/frequency of urination
