Behind the movement
“I talk about the pelvic ﬂoor all the time. As one of the pioneer physical therapists specializing in pelvic floor dysfunction, I have been treating patients afflicted with these disorders for over twenty years. I have seen how the exercises and therapies I prescribe — breathing, relaxing, strengthening, stretching, toning, diet — don’t just heal the disorders but can prevent them from occurring in the ﬁrst place. At the same time, these exercises and therapies can ward off the effects of aging while enhancing patients’ lives immeasurably.”

Frequently Asked Questions

Does insurance cover pelvic floor therapy?
What does a pelvic floor physiotherapist do?
What exercises are bad for the pelvic floor?
While in rehabilitation, there are some activities that may be too much right now for the pelvic floor and can overwhelm the system. The strength, flexibility, and endurance have to be increased to be able to handle harder tasks. Anything that causes pain, bladder leaking, causes you to hold your breath and strain, or forces you to compensate or lose form, could be detrimental to your rehab progress. Pelvic floor exercises and Kegels are appropriate in only certain conditions of pure weakness and sometimes are overutilized. In most cases, these exercises can aggravate pelvic pain and pelvic floor dysfunction conditions.
