Pelvic 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.

Treatments include:

  • Manual Therapy (hands on techniques that include myofascial release, trigger point release, craniosacral therapy, joint mobilization, visceral manipulation)
  • Therapeutic Exercise (for flexibility and relaxing tight, painful areas while strengthening weak areas)
  • Correction of Posture/Alignment
  • Body Mechanics and Ergonomic Education
