Pelvic floor dysfunction can result from impaired relaxation and coordination of pelvic floor and abdominal muscles. Pelvic floor muscles can become strained and include urinary incontinence, constipation, discomfort during sex, and pain in the lower back, pelvic region, genitals or rectum. We understand that these can be difficult subjects to talk about, and that it can be alarming to experience the symptoms and read about the conditions behind them, especially as a new parent.
Our approach to treatment
Treatment at Viverant consists of one-on-one sessions in a comfortable private treatment room with a Viverant Physical Therapist who has extensive experience and specialized training in pelvic health. You and your PT will discuss your medical history and the symptoms you’re experiencing, and they’ll conduct a comprehensive evaluation that can include assessing your posture, range of motion, pelvic alignment, flexibility, strength, pelvic stability, joint mobility, tissue restriction, and pelvic floor muscle condition.
Your personalized plan of care will focus on manual therapy, neuromuscular re-education, strength and stabilization exercises, biofeedback, relaxation training, behavior modifications, postural changes, and education — including bladder/bowel/pelvic floor-specific information.
