What does a physical therapist do to treat my pelvic pain? 


Evidence shows that pelvic floor problems can be successfully treated with a personalized program designed and managed by a trained clinician.  


Once a complete evaluation is done, a treatment plan may include:  


  • Soft and deep tissue therapy and joint mobilization and manipulation to help increase your mobility and reduce pain 

  • Stretches and strength exercises to help retrain your muscles in and around the pelvic area, and to increase blood flow and tissue function in the pelvis 

  • Education to accurately identify and use the muscles in and around your pelvis 

  • Dry needling to stimulate trigger points and knots within your muscles and reduce pain, muscle tension, and dysfunction in the muscle 

  • Balance training to improve your steadiness as you move through in your daily activities
