Physical Therapy for the Pelvic Floor

Physical therapy is a branch of rehabilitative care that is focused on conservative treatment options for conditions associated with the muscles and joints. These conditions can be located in the pelvis or anywhere else in the body, and there are specially trained physical therapists who provide care specifically for this region, for all individuals regardless of gender.

What Conditions are Treated by Pelvic Health Therapists?

Conditions specific to the pelvic region may result in pelvic pain, incontinence, and sexual dysfunction including dyspareunia (pain specifically associated with intercourse).  Treatments vary depending upon an individual’s specific medical history.  Physical therapists at CHI Health work closely with physicians from a number of different specialities to provide a holistic, multi-faceted approach.  

At times, a conservative approach may not fully resolve a particular condition, and a referral to other providers is appropriate.  If surgery is part of the treatment plan, physical therapy can also serve to put you in the best condition so that you can enjoy a successful return to full normal function.

Where Can I get Pelvic Health Physical Therapy?

Pelvic health physical therapy services are offered at a number of different CHI Health locations around town.  Our dedicated pelvic health navigator can be reached by calling 402-717-PELV, and will help you find a location and physical therapist that will best meet your needs, as well as answer any questions you may have related to pelvic health physical therapy services.
