What is pelvic floor physical therapy?
The pelvic floor is described as the collection of muscles present in the pelvic area that support the organs of the pelvis. When the muscles are too tight or loose, or the muscles aren’t grouped in the correct form, this can cause problems. Pelvic floor difficulties also happen when there are damages or issues with the nerves.
Pelvic floor physical therapy is a specialized form of treatment that addresses various types of dysfunction in the pelvis. The dysfunction gets treated with exercise therapy, functional training, manual therapy, biofeedback, and core strengthening. Personalized care for your pelvic floor is possible because of the professional physical therapy team. When you need customized care to alleviate your pain or dysfunction, request an appointment at our Chicago, IL, Peoria, IL, or Bloomington, IL, office. Our GI providers at GI Alliance of Illinois will assist you in your journey to getting back to a new normal.
