Physical therapy with a properly trained professional is a possible treatment for a wide variety of pelvic floor conditions, and undergoing therapy may even help a patient avoid medication or surgery. Our pelvic health specialist is here to answer your questions and help you get back to normal function. Her personable and friendly demeanor will help you feel comfortable during all courses of treatment.
What to expect
Before you arrive for your first therapy appointment, you will be asked to complete a survey so your therapist can have a good gauge of your pain or discomfort and medical history. You will be taken to a private treatment room, where you will discuss your symptoms and your therapist can educate you on an expected treatment plan. During this first visit, she may perform an internal examination to evaluate pelvic floor muscle strength or trigger points. Internal exams may or may not be needed on each visit – it will depend on your diagnosis.
With certain conditions, your therapist may give you the tools you need and offer you the opportunity to follow a program at home. She may request that you come in periodically so she can check your progress. The ultimate goal is self-maintenance so you can get back to normal life as soon as possible.
Common conditions we treat in this area include:
- Coccygodynia (Coccydynia)
- Diastasis Recti
- Fecal Incontinence
- Pre & Post-Natal Conditions
- Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction

Do not live with pain or discomfort! In some cases, physical therapy can create life-changing results for a patient dealing with pelvic floor pain. Our Cary physical therapy clinic is currently offering pelvic health appointments for women and men.
