PFD is a term used to describe pain and disruption of bladder, bowel and/or sexual function due to restrictions of muscles and nerves of the pelvis.
Over the last 10 years, physical therapists have begun to specialize in pelvic floor dysfunction which enables them to treat a wide range of conditions, related to the systems of the pelvic region. Having great success with treatments aimed at improvement of pelvic floor symptoms, Sawtooth Physical Therapy wants you to know more. PFD symptoms can be contributed to one system or a combination of the three systems that make up the pelvic floor region; urinary (leaking, urgency, hesitancy); bowel (constipation, incontinence, rectal pain) and sexual (dyspareunia and vestibular pain in women).
A wide range of manual therapies (hands on) are performed to release restrictions of pelvic floor, hip, abdominal, and low back muscles along with visceral organs. Treatments include;
Internal & External 'Manual Therapy' Techniques, hands on
Strengthening Exercise Techniques and
Bladder Retraining Schedule. A retraining schedule is used to help stop urinary frequency and other therapeutic modalities. It is also used to relieve pain and help restore pelvic stability and function. Personalized manual therapy techniques are provided in the comfort of a private treatment room. We currently treat men & women with pelvic health pain and dysfunction.
