Exercising at the gym. Playing with your kids. Strolling on the beach. These are life’s simple joys. But after a baby, when your pelvic floor muscles are too tight or too weak, they can cause incontinence or even pain, preventing you from enjoying the little things. We’re here to help you put a stop to your pelvic discomfort for good.
Many things can affect your pelvic floor, but one of the most common causes of change or discomfort is childbirth. Contact your women’s health navigator to connect with a pelvic floor expert if you’re experiencing any of these symptoms:
- Chronic or functional constipation
- Fecal incontinence
- Frequent or urgent urination
- Leaking urine when laughing or coughing
- Painful urination
- Pressure and pain in your vagina, bladder, or rectum
- Unable to fully empty bladder
- Vaginal bulging
Effective Treatment Options for Pelvic Floor Conditions
Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy
This type of physical therapy specializes in pelvic floor disorders of the bladder, vagina, rectum and pelvis. Urogynecologists often recommend that patients have pelvic floor therapy evaluations and treatment as part of non-surgical management for problems, or to assist and improve surgical outcomes. Our therapists have special pelvic floor therapy training and certifications in biofeedback and electrical stimulation.
Based on the type and severity of your condition in addition to your overall health, surgical options may be right for you if other treatments have been unsuccessful. There are several safe and effective surgical options for treating incontinence and prolapse that you and your urogynecologist can discuss based on your specific needs.
