Expert Care for “Down There”

Most people are familiar with Physical Therapy for low back pain, knee pain and shoulder problems. What most people don’t know is that Physical Therapists also treat a whole host of “hidden” dysfunctions — such as urinary incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, abdominal and pelvic pain, and post-natal care (to name a few). Those conditions, along with many more, are within the scope of the Pelvic Rehabilitation Specialist.

What is my pelvic floor?

The pelvic floor is the set of muscles that support bladder and bowel function, stabilize posture in functional activity, and are integral to sexual activity. These muscles are located at the bottom of the pelvis and interact directly with the hip, low back, and abdominals muscles.

This muscle group is also often overlooked. Usually, the root of a person’s low back pain may be in the pelvic floor. Our pelvic health specialists have extensive training with the Herman and Wallace Institute in treating both female and male pelvic floor dysfunction.

Our therapists work closely with a number of Obstetricians, Gynecologists, Urogynecologists, and Urologists in the Atlanta Metro area to coordinate diagnosis and treatment of a wide variety of pelvic conditions and manage post-surgical rehabilitation. However, we also see many clients who come directly to our therapists with complaints of pain and dysfunction following child-birth, injury, or surgery. After a thorough evaluation, our therapists can offer a treatment plan and referral to a physician, if needed.

What is Diastasis Recti Abdominis? (DRA)

“This is just what happens when you have kids.” Words that make every pelvic floor PT cringe. Urinary leakage, pelvic pain, and weaker abdominals are not conditions you need to suffer through after child birth. Even conditions like abdominal separation or Diastasis Recti can be treated with physical therapy.  What is Diastasis Recti Abdominis? A…
