What can I expect with pelvic floor rehabilitation?

This specific form of physical therapy works on strengthening the muscles, tendons, and ligaments of the pelvic floor. When muscles in the pelvic area become tight or weak, your daily life can be greatly affected, as this region helps in supporting the core of your body and is an integral part of everyday movement.

One of our dedicated Cranston, RI physical therapists will evaluate your medical history and provide a musculoskeletal examination to determine what specific type of treatment you’ll need. This may include proactive and/or preventative treatments. For example, pelvic floor rehabilitation can help prepare a woman for childbirth by ensuring an easier delivery and possibly preventing the need for a C-section.

Some common techniques used during pelvic floor rehabilitation include:

  • Postural exercises: These exercises are aimed at improving posture and strengthening the pelvic floor muscles that affect posture. These exercises are typically done with large therapy or medicine balls.
  • Myofascial exercises: These exercises will target the pelvic floor muscles and connecting fascia. This treatment may include light exercise, in addition to stretches and myofascial release, in order to target painful, tender points and provide relief.
  • Diaphragmatic breathing: Deep breathing exercises allow your diaphragm to expand and contract, which helps in relaxing muscles in the pelvic area. When the muscles are relaxed, they will drop and lengthen, providing pain relief and allowing for regained function.
  • Relaxation techniques: Relaxation is a large part of physical therapy. It allows your muscles to ease tension, making it easier for them to be stretched and massaged. Your physical therapist may suggest some certain techniques, such as guided imagery or biofeedback, in order to help you relax.
