Struggling with pelvic pain, urinary incontinence, or another of the following pelvic floor dysfunctions?
- Interstitial cystitis (inflamed bladder)
- Pelvic organ prolapse
- Pelvic pain
- Sexual dysfunction
- Urinary incontinence
- Vulvodynia (painful vulva)
You are not alone. More than one-third of American women have a pelvic health disorder. As frustrating as these conditions are, there is hope. Grace Cottage can help.
The pelvic floor muscles are at the base of your pelvis. They support your bladder, uterus and vagina or prostate, and rectum. When the pelvic floor muscles aren’t working correctly, you may experience pelvic pain when you go to the bathroom or during sex. Or you may have leaking urine or have to urinate too often.
Pregnancy, childbirth, aging, obesity, and other conditions can cause the pelvic floor muscles to stop supporting your organs, a condition known as pelvic organ prolapse. The organs press down, causing pain.
Pelvic Health Therapy can help to alleviate this pain. Grace Cottage’s Outpatient Rehabilitation Center now offers this specialized therapy.
Pelvic Health Therapy treats the whole person. Treatment is individualized for each patient’s needs and may include physical exams, therapeutic exercises, biofeedback, ultrasound, and conversation about the emotional stress that often accompanies this issue.
The therapy is covered by most insurance, with a medical provider’s referral. Talk to your primary care provider to determine if this therapy is right for you.
