Pelvic Health

Ability Rehabilitation pelvic-healthOur Pelvic Physical Therapists believe every mom should regain abdominal and pelvic floor muscles that optimally support the back and neck, continence and intercourse without pain. Wanting a full recovery from pregnancy and delivery is not selfish. You deserve a body able to function effectively as you care for your family.

Your Pelvic Physical Therapist will assess your pelvic floor and abdominals to design a recovery program specifically for you. The program will start with focus on your abdominal and pelvic floor then move into a fitness program.

At Ability Rehabilitation our Pelvic Health and Rehabilitation team is made up of highly trained therapists that specialize in pelvic floor muscle dysfunction.

  • Do you have pain in your low back, pelvic region, groin hip genitalia, or rectum?
  • Are you leaking urine, experiencing urinary frequency or having difficulty controlling gas, or bowel movements?
  • Do you experience pain with intercourse?
  • Are you having trouble doing your normal activities?

If you answered YES to any or all of these questions you may have problems with your pelvic floor muscles.

What is the Pelvic Floor?

The pelvic floor is made up of muscles deep within the pelvic girdle that support the trunk. The function of the pelvic floor is to control urination and defecation, and to support the pelvic organs; it is also the major contributing factor to sexual appreciation and function.

The pelvic floor is the missing puzzle piece that is often left untreated because of its location.

It serves as an important part of the core muscles that initiate movement. It is your inner strength. Pelvic floor dysfunction may lead to many symptoms including pain and incontinence.

We work together to develop a treatment plan that is individualized to each persons needs. Our approach to patient care is to assess the patient as a whole.
