Pelvic floor physical therapy for incontinence in Jacksonville, NC

Four reasons you may need physical therapy for carpal tunnel syndrome in Jacksonville, NC

The pelvic floor is a group of muscles in your pelvic region that support the organs in your pelvis. It’s important that these muscles remain strong and flexible to continue supporting the organs. When the muscles become weak or stiff due to injuries, chronic conditions or a sedentary lifestyle, you may experience pain, limited range of motion, and loss of bladder or bowel control.

Pelvic floor pain creates many challenges in your daily life, so it’s important to find treatment from a professional to help your pelvic floor remain healthy. One type of professional that many people turn to for assistance with their pelvic floor are physical therapists.

What can physical therapists do to help with pelvic floor pain?

Physical therapists are licensed health care professionals who specialize in natural treatments to help with conditions like those that affect your pelvic floor. Treatments are personalized to the needs of each individual patient, but you can generally expect treatment to include: 

  • Stretches and exercises — Stretches and exercises help build up the strength and flexibility of the muscles in the pelvic floor. This can help to reduce pain and provide better structure for your internal organs.
  • Hands-on therapy — Physical therapists can use hands-on techniques like joint mobilization and soft tissue mobilization to help rehabilitate the pelvic floor. These treatment methods are often used to help reduce tension in the muscles and improve range of motion in the joints.
  • Posture guidance — Poor posture can be both a contributing factor to pelvic pain and a result of pelvic pain. Physical therapists can monitor your posture and assist you in making corrections to help reduce pelvic floor pain.
