Many people suffer from pelvic floor dysfunction and related symptoms that go on for years because of misdiagnosis and inappropriate treatments leaving them feeling physically incomplete. Fortunately, more doctors are aware of pelvic floor dysfunction and are referring their patients to physical therapy sooner. There are great resources available for pelvic wellness. Many patients with pelvic floor dysfunction also benefit from psychological services and support groups because their issues are so personal. If you have chronic pain or problems with bladder, bowel or sexual function, try physical therapy. We are an integral part of your team of specialists that helps you return to complete physical health.
As part of our whole body approach to healing, Midtown Physical Therapy (MPT) offers pelvic health services to address issues that affect bladder, bowel and sexual function. The pelvis is the center of the body. Therefore, alignment or structural issues present in the pelvis affect not only the pelvic floor muscles and abdominal organs, but they can also cause symptoms that arise in the hips, back, neck and even the arms and legs. Treating the pelvis can often be like finding the missing piece in a puzzle. When your symptoms become severe or chronic and don’t respond to other treatment for common conditions MPT can help you become physically complete.
At Midtown Physical Therapy we provide a comprehensive, 90 minute orthopedic and pelvic evaluation. We customize hour long follow up sessions for your specific symptoms and personal needs.
