What is the Pelvic Floor?

Your pelvic floor is a group of muscles, connective tissue, and nerves in your pelvic region. Basically, your pelvic floor acts like a sling to support the organs in your pelvis — including bladder, rectum, uterus, or prostate. Contracting and relaxing these muscles is what allows you to control urination, bowel movements, and, for women in particular, sexual intercourse.

Pelvic Conditions We Treat

Northwest Wellness Group specializes in gynecological, urological, and abdominal conditions. These are problems that include incontinence and pain of the bladder, bowel, and pelvic region. Often triggered by surgery, pregnancy, or trauma, they can involve muscle, nerve, and soft tissue dysfunction — areas well addressed with physical therapy.

All conditions are treated by an experienced Physical Therapist who specializes in pelvic health.

Pregnancy / Prenatal / Postpartum

Being pregnant and having a vaginal delivery may weaken or stretch some of the supporting structures in the pelvis. Pelvic floor disorders are more common among women who have had vaginal deliveries and the risk increases with each delivery. The delivery itself may damage nerves, leading to muscle weakness and dysfunction.

Bladder Dysfunction

Bladder dysfunction can affect the pelvic floor muscles. Lack of communication and coordination between the bladder and pelvic floor muscles can result in creating new urinary symptoms or aid in perpetuating a patient’s current bladder symptoms.

Bowel Dysfunction

Bowel movements are enabled by contracting and relaxing the pelvic floor muscles. Pelvic floor dysfunction is when you lose the ability to correctly contract (tighten) and relax the muscles in the pelvic floor to have a bowel movement.

Your pelvic floor plays a major role in sexual functioning. For instance, if you have vulvar pain or post-ejaculatory pain, you’ll understandably develop hesitation around sex. For some patients, their symptoms might even make sex all but impossible.
