 What does “Pelvic Health Physical Therapy” mean?

The term Pelvic Health refers to the overall function and well-being of everything in, out, around and attaching to….the Pelvis. In Physical Therapy terms it refers to the systems of the  bladder (urination),  bowel (defecation), sexual function, orthopedic musculoskeletal sports pain of the Pelvis.  “Good” or “Normal” Pelvic Health means that a person has normal function or their bowel, bladder, sexual function, sport and life without pain or restraint. I often educate people about the difference between what is COMMON vs. what is NORMAL.  Because these 2 terms are not the same when it comes to bladder, bowels and sexual function.

Physical Therapy for Pelvic Health


“There’s PT for that? I didn’t know that was even a thing!” – I hear this ALL OF THE TIME. 

It used to be thought that “the Pelvic Floor” aka “Kegels” were all that was needed to keep a pelvis healthy. But, did you know that about 50% of people perform “Kegels” wrong! Shocking right? Also, did you know that many people have been told “just do some Kegels and you’ll be fine!” But get this…. Kegels are helpful to some people but for many people – Kegels are NOT the right fix. Most times, the contributing factors to Pelvic Health are complex. This is where Physical Therapy for Pelvic Health comes in…..As a Physical Therapist that specializes in helping people with Pelvic Issues, I listen compassionately to your concerns, thoroughly review your history, evaluate your whole body, including your pelvis and everything that attaches to it. Some of the things I evaluate are strength, flexibility, muscle spasm, pressure system, posture, coordination, body awareness, sensation, dietary, sleep, eating, hydration, exercise and Daily activity biomechanics. Because the functions of this region of the body deals with going to the bathroom (urination and defecation), sexual function or pain, sitting, sports, prostate, pregnancy and postpartum – of course I will ask specific questions about this as well.  I analyze all of this info and then with your goals in mind, I put together a personalized plan made just for you. At first, it might seem strange to talk openly about activities that many people feel are “private.” But, just like if you were to see a PT for your knee – you would expect your PT to listen and ask questions about the difficulty, inability or pain you might have with walking, running, squatting or stairs. So, in considering the activities related to the pelvis…. bladder, bowel and sexual function – it only makes sense to fully understand what is going on.

As a PT who is also has my  PRPC (Pelvic Rehabilitation Practitioner Certification) – I hear and help people with these sensitive issues ALL.DAY.LONG. So, I am comfortable with listening to whatever you are comfortable sharing with me about your pelvic health.

As a reminder, Pelvic Health Physical Therapy is a safe and effective treatment option for many pelvic health conditions. It can help people improve their quality of life and regain control over their bladder, bowel, and sexual function. If you are experiencing any pelvic health issues, consider booking a free 10 minute phone or virtual discovery consultation to see it this is a good fit for you.
