Pelvic Rehabilitation

Rely on the knowledgeable therapists at Essentia Health for pelvic rehabilitation. We'll teach you exercises to help prevent or treat pelvic floor conditions. Ask your primary care provider or specialist about seeing a pelvic rehab therapist. 

What’s Pelvic Floor Rehabilitation?

Pelvic rehabilitation is a type of therapy. It helps you strengthen your pelvic floor—the muscles and connective tissue that support the bladder and rectum. In women, the pelvic floor also holds the uterus. In men, it holds the prostate gland. 

Do I Need Pelvic Physical Therapy?

Talk to your primary care provider or gynecologist if you experience symptoms of a pelvic floor condition, such as:

  • Pain or pressure in the abdomen, pelvis, or lower back
  • Urinary problems, including pain when urinating, incontinence, or frequent urination
  • Constipation, leaking, or other problems passing a bowel movement
  • Pain during sex

Pelvic floor problems are common after pregnancy and childbirth.

Personalized Exercise Program

Count on our therapists to evaluate your pelvic floor muscles and determine the cause of your symptoms. In a safe and private environment, you’ll learn relaxation and strengthening exercises you can do at home.

Depending on your condition, your therapist, primary care provider, or gynecologist may also recommend medications like muscle relaxers.
