Stretching can help you alleviate muscle stiffness and pain issues, and prevent these issues from occurring again. Pelvic floor physical therapy helps stretch the ligaments from the pubic bone to the tailbone. This entire area can be prone to stiffness, soreness, lower mobility, and pain due to how often we sit every day. See how pelvic floor therapy can help enhance your mobility and body movement.
What Is Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy?
Pelvic floor physical therapy helps treat pain, weakness, stiffness, and dysfunction in the muscles located around the pelvic area. The purpose of pelvic floor physical therapy is to help improve and restore your level of mobility, function, and overall health. During this treatment, trigger points are targeted and worked on to help reduce connective tissue problems that may be causing pain or stiffness.
Importance of The Pelvic Floor
Pelvic floor muscles are important as they help control the bladder and bowel movement and functions. These muscles also help pregnant women as they are responsible for supporting the fetus and are used during the natural birthing process. Weakness in these muscles can cause constipation, pain in the lower back, genitals, and rectum.
Your First Physical Therapy Session
During your first physical therapy session, your physical therapist will assess you and design the most effective and specialized plan to help your situation. During your session, you will be required to move around and complete a series of exercises to help with the assessment process. This assessment also includes an in-depth review of your medical history and an evaluation of your symptoms.
Depending on the state of your condition, you may need up to eight sessions to begin experiencing relief and comfort. While that may seem like a lot, they can all fit into less than two weeks and help you begin your journey to a more comfortable and relaxed you.
