Pelvic Floor Therapy
An education is what you will get when you step into NWO Center for Pelvic Rehabilitation and Wellness for the first time, especially if you are wondering why in the world you are being sent to a physical therapist to address your bladder concerns, bowel concerns, pelvic pain, abdominal pain or sexual dysfunction.
The pelvic floor rehabilitation physical therapists create a safe environment for their patients and are very easy to talk to about any of these personal and delicate subjects. These specialists take the time during your initial evaluation and individual follow up treatment sessions to listen to your full history, figure out what cascade of factors led you to the symptoms you have now, and will thoughtfully determine a treatment plan for your body to restore its normal function again.
Discussing the vagina, penis, bladder and bowel – because they deal with sex, pee and poop – can be taboo. The Physical Therapists and Physical Therapy Assistant want to discuss these topics with you in a very caring and professional way – and teach you through simple education about how your body and organs work, so you can move forward towards better health and wellness.
Prenatal and postpartum care are also of utmost importance in setting the stage for good pelvic floor health throughout a woman’s lifetime. Just as a hip or knee or back would need rehabilitation after a trauma or injury, the pelvic floor will need rehabilitation after childbirth to restore its normal function and help to prevent any number of pelvic floor dysfunctions later in life including bladder/bowel incontinence, prolapse and pelvic pain.
