Pelvic Floor Therapy
Pelvic floor therapy is a specialized form of physical therapy that addresses the pelvic region’s muscles, ligaments, and connective tissue. These muscles and tissues play a vital role in supporting the bladder, uterus, and rectum and are crucial for sexual function, pregnancy, and childbirth.
At Summit Performance Therapy, we understand the importance of maintaining a healthy pelvic floor and offer pelvic floor therapy to help address a variety of conditions, including:
- Incontinence: Pelvic floor therapy can help to strengthen and retrain the muscles and tissues of the pelvic floor, reducing the risk of incontinence.
- Prolapse: Pelvic floor therapy can help to reduce the symptoms of prolapse, which occurs when the pelvic organs fall out of their normal position.
- Pelvic pain: Pelvic floor therapy can help to reduce pain caused by conditions such as dyspareunia, vulvodynia, adn vaginismus.
In addition to pelvic floor therapy, we offer a range of other physical therapy and wellness services, including Dry Needling, Manual Therapy, Exercise Therapy, Kinotek, Normatec, and Taping.
