urinary isues

Large Font: Incontinence is not a normal consequence of birth or aging.

Because many symptoms of urinary incontinence are caused by pelvic floor muscle weakness and dysfunction, a specially trained pelvic physical therapist is a provider to help you gain control over your symptoms.

Pelvic physical therapy can help with the following conditions:

  • Urinary incontinence – stress, urge, or overactive bladder
  • Urinary frequency/urgency/retention
  • Voiding difficulties
  • Pelvic organ prolapse

bowel issues

Physical therapy can be successful in identifying and treating musculoskeletal dysfunctions such as tightness or weakness in the abdomen, low back or pelvic floor musculature caused by IBS. Trigger point release in the abdomen, back, gluteals, and pelvic floor, and neuromuscular re-education of these muscle groups can be very successful in minimizing and/or eliminating symptoms.

Pelvic physical therapy can help with conditions such as:

  • Fecal or gas incontinence
  • Constipation
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
  • Hemorrhoids/Fissures
  • Pelvic Organ Prolapse
Your physical therapist will coordinate care with your colorectal surgeon, gastroenterologist, naturopathic doctor and dietician/nutritionist to address all aspects of bowel dysfunction.
