Think of the issue you are struggling with right now. Maybe it has to do with incontinence, so you have cut down on your water intake and your social life for fear of an accident in public, and are now dehydrated and miss your buddies. Maybe you stopped running or taking an exercise class because you’re worried about leakage, or organ prolapse, or you go to the bathroom 26 times a day and it’s affecting your ability to focus on your work. Maybe sex with your partner is no longer enjoyable because of pain or scar tissue buildup or a lack of function. Maybe you are tired of being in pain, or embarrassed about your body. These problems don’t just go away on their own. Pelvic floor physical therapy is about more than just returning your bowel, bladder or sexual function, and strengthening or lengthening pelvic muscles. It’s about giving you the tools you need to reclaim your life.
