Pelvic floor rehabilitation works on the area between your belly button and hips. The muscles and nerves in this area help control the bladder and bowel, support organs, and enable enjoyable, pain-free sex.
Symptoms that suggest you may benefit from pelvic floor rehab include:
- Urine leakage or “overactive” bladder
- Pelvic pain or pain during sexual intercourse
- Difficulty making bowel movements.
Therapy may include exercises to strengthen muscles, stretching or massage for tight and painful muscles, bladder retraining to help the bladder hold larger amounts for longer periods of time.
Contrary to popular belief, pelvic floor problems are not normal after childbirth or with aging.
