Pelvic Floor Therapy

Pelvic Floor Therapy

At St. Luke’s, we treat patients with pelvic floor dysfunctions which are problems that consist of pain and disruption of bladder, bowel and/or sexual function due to restrictions of the muscles and nerves of the pelvis. Through pelvic floor therapy, our goal is to minimize side effects and to encourage patients to have the best quality of life possible.

Our Team

Our team of physical and occupational therapists treat patients with pelvic floor dysfunctions through education, manual therapy, biofeedback, neuromuscular stimulation as well as internal and external palpations and treatment.
