As a pelvic health physical therapist, I often see people after they've visited countless other healthcare providers who have overlooked the muscular system. As they come in, I hear them say things like:
- “I have no idea why I’m here.”
- “I’m only here because my doctor told me to.”
- “So what exactly is pelvic health PT?”
- “Are we just going to do some Kegels?”
Pelvic health isn't a new type of physical therapy, however it is finally gaining some traction in the health and wellness space. Physicians are now realizing that it’s not just for pregnant and postpartum moms. Pelvic health is for people of all genders, ages, and activity levels. Everyone has a pelvis, and therefore we all could benefit from better pelvic health. So let's discuss what pelvic health physical therapy actually is and how it can help you.
