Pelvic Floor Rehabilitation
Disorders such as Pelvic Floor Dysfunction can be painful and often times, the disorder goes unidentified and untreated. Pelvic Floor Dysfunction is more common than you may think; statistics show 1 out of every 5 people suffer from some type of pelvic floor dysfunction at some time in their life. In many cases, this dysfunction can be treated without the need for surgery by an experienced Physical Therapist.
Pelvic Floor Dysfunction refers to many problems that occur when the muscles of the pelvic floor are weak, tight, or there is an impairment of the sacroiliac joint, low back, coccyx and/or hip joint.

I’m menstruating, can I still attend my appointment?
Yes, but it depends on your comfort. If you have a very heavy flow, you may use a menstrual cup and still attend. If you are uncomfortable/unable to utilize a menstrual cup, then you may want to wait until your menstrual cycle ended. If your flow is very light and you feel comfortable with the therapist completing the exam/treatment, then it is definitely no problem to attend your session. An examination cannot be complete with a tampon in place.
