Exercises and Treament for Pelvic Floor Muscles

Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy

Your pelvic floor cradles your reproductive organs as well as your urinary and lower digestive tracts. Menopause, pregnancy, and childbirth can weaken your pelvic floor and lead to issues like urinary incontinence and prolapse. Fortunately, you don’t have to learn to live with these disruptive issues. Lake OB-GYN Associates of Mid-Florida, LLC in Leesburg, and Villages, in Florida, offers pelvic floor physical therapy to help you rebuild strength in your pelvic floor and restore your quality of life.

Physical therapy is a treatment that uses exercises, stretches, and manual therapies to restore strength, flexibility, and range of motion in your muscles and connective tissues. You might associate physical therapy with recovery from injury or surgery, but it can also help repair and restore your pelvic floor.

Pelvic floor physical therapy combines exercises like Kegels, stretches and massages, mild electrical or laser stimulation, and dilators. Depending on your needs, your treatment can stretch tight muscles, strengthen weak muscles, and improve your overall health.

Your therapist also provides educational resources to teach you about your pelvic anatomy and how your muscles work and cooperate to support the organs in your pelvis.

Your doctor will recommend pelvic floor physical therapy as part of a comprehensive treatment plan for a wide range of issues, including:

  • Pelvic pain
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Fecal incontinence
  • Prolapse
  • Painful sex
  • Sexual dysfunction

You can develop pelvic floor weakness after pregnancy and childbirth, which put significant physical stress on your pelvic floor muscles. Additionally, as you approach menopause and your hormone levels change, you can develop vaginal atrophy, a condition that makes the muscles in and around your vagina weak, dry, and vulnerable to injury.

Patient Feedback

LINDSEY H.

Dr. Lee and Dr. Britt are by far best the gynecologists in Central Florida. They always make me feel welcome and it’s wonderful to see the same doctors for over 10 years. The Leesburg office is in dire need of some updating and I wished there was more hand sanitizer readily available, but that has nothing to do with the outstanding care that Dr. Lee and Dr. Britt give.

  Dr Wood is a fantastic Doctor. She is so sweet and is so caring, knowledgeable, through and takes the time to listen and discuss all my concerns and questions. I have been going to her for over a decade. She is wonderful in her profession and I am very comfortable and grateful to be in her care . She’s the best in my opinion !!!
