Inspire’s Pelvic Health Program
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 Health Rehabilitation Specialist.
Pelvic Floor Dysfunction
The pelvic floor is the set of muscles that support the bladder and bowel, function in child bearing, 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 muscles of the hip, low back, and abdominals. This muscle group is often overlooked, but to treat a person holistically, they must be included. Often, the root of a person’s low back pain may actually be in the pelvic floor. Our pelvic health specialist has extensive training with the Herman and Wallace Institute in treating both female and male pelvic floor dysfunction.
