A special type of rehabilitation that evaluates and treats pelvic dysfunction and pain, both male and female patients receive a private, one-on-one session with a physical therapist to evaluate joint alignment, muscle flexibility/coordination/strength, posture, and other patient-specific information.
Pelvic floor muscles support internal organs, help maintain bowel and bladder continence, provide stabilization, and help maintain sexual function. These muscles may become weak, tight or uncoordinated as a result of injury, trauma, childbirth, surgery or other chronic conditions.
Pelvic floor musculoskeletal issues may lead to the following:
• Bladder dysfunction
• Pelvic organ prolapse
• Bowel disorders
• Sexual dysfunction
• Pelvic pain
• Lower back/abdominal pain and weakness
• Coccyx and tailbone pain
At Jefferson Stratford Hospital, patient-specific, evidence-based treatment plans are created by a therapist based on recommendations from each patient's doctor. Patients must first receive a physician referral to the program.
