Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy in Oviedo, FL

Understanding the Pelvic Floor

The pelvic floor comprises a group of muscles spanning from the pubic bone to the tailbone, providing crucial support to the bladder, rectum, and uterus. Like a foundational structure, the pelvic floor ensures the stability of these organs. However, aging, increased pressure, and hormonal changes can weaken these muscles, leading to issues like incontinence, prolapse, and pain.

Identifying Weakness in the Pelvic Floor

Various factors contribute to the weakening of pelvic floor muscles over time. Hormonal fluctuations, particularly during pregnancy and menopause, can play a role. Additionally, increased pressure from weight gain, constipation, childbirth, or repetitive high-impact activities can lead to muscle weakness. When the pelvic floor is weakened, individuals may experience symptoms like urinary leakage or incontinence, which can be categorized into stress urinary incontinence and urge incontinence.

We understand that each individual’s needs and goals are unique, so we tailor our treatment strategies to address specific concerns and optimize outcomes.

With our patient-centered approach and state-of-the-art techniques, we strive to empower individuals to reclaim control over their pelvic health and enjoy a life free from the limitations of pelvic floor dysfunction.

Work Session

During the work session, a vaginal probe is inserted, and sensor electrodes are placed on the abdomen to monitor muscle activity. This setup helps identify initial concerns such as pelvic floor laxity or tension. Our providers guide clients through Kegel exercises, providing real-time feedback on the computer screen to ensure proper muscle contraction. This biofeedback mechanism allows clients to adjust their Kegel techniques and observe immediate results, enhancing engagement and effectiveness.

Electrical Stimulation

In the stimulation session, electrical stimulation is utilized to engage the pelvic floor muscles further. Similar to using a TENS unit, the vaginal probe emits different frequencies of stimulation tailored to the individual’s needs. This customizable approach enables users to adjust the duration and intensity of stimulation, facilitating muscle strengthening and alleviating symptoms like urinary leakage.
