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.
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.
Talk to your primary care provider or gynecologist if you experience symptoms of a pelvic floor condition, such as:
Pelvic floor problems are common after pregnancy and childbirth.
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.
You’ll need a referral from your primary care provider or a specialist for this service.
