Treatments and Procedures

Pelvic floor physical therapists may utilize several techniques:

  • Patient education. Information regarding pelvic floor anatomy and surrounding musculature, as well as self-care techniques and behavioral strategies to manage symptoms.
  • Pelvic floor exercises. Patients are instructed in various exercises to lengthen and strengthen not only their pelvic floor muscles, but also muscles of the low back, abdomen, and lower extremities.
  • Manual therapy. A certified physical therapist may use hands-on techniques, such as gentle massage, myofascial release, and stretching, to improve posture, muscle tension/pain, and general mobility.
  • Pelvic floor biofeedback. Biofeedback is a technique that allows the patient to “see” how his or her pelvic floor is functioning. This procedure is not painful, and can be performed either internally or externally. The results are displayed on a computer screen.
