• Benefits of Women’s Health Physical Therapy

    Hab-it, an expert panel of women’s physical therapists and personal trainers recently highlighted why it is important to choose a women’s health physical therapist:

    Women’s Health Physical Therapy for Any Treatment Option

    Did you know that no matter what treatment option you choose for your pelvic floor dysfunction, it is always recommended that you follow up that treatment with an exercise program to strengthen your pelvic floor muscles.

    If you choose surgery, it is important to strengthen your pelvic floor muscles following the procedure to support the work that was done and, hopefully, increase the length of time the sling or mesh may be effective.

    If you choose a pessary device, you want to continue to strengthen your pelvic floor muscles and monitor your posture to decrease your dependence on the device.  You may also have the goal of eliminating the need for a pessary device in the future, so a consistent pelvic floor program is highly recommended.

    Physical Therapy Paired with Regular Exercise

    If your treatment choice is to take medication to control you incontinence symptoms, again, exercise is also recommended.  Studies have shown that taking medication in conjunction with a regular pelvic floor exercise program to treat incontinence symptoms is much more effective than taking medication alone.

    Exercise is consistently recommended, no matter what treatment option you choose to control your incontinence or prolapse symptoms.   The best place to receive exercise advice for muscle groups that are no longer working as they used to, is from a Physical Therapist.  Physical Therapists are trained through post graduate work to treat muscle and joint dysfunction.  More specifically, a women’s health Physical Therapist has thoroughly studied the pelvic floor and the supporting muscles of the pelvic and abdominal basket.

    Focusing on what you want to distinguish along overall themes, likened to memorizing every detail, you are more likely to recall.

    I didn’t know that taking medication and getting physical therapy aid can help to improve women’s health when it comes to physiological problems. My back has been giving me some grief and it would be really nice to have some extra help when it comes to recovering from that. Maybe I can ask some of my neighbors about what they know and who I could go to for help.

    Thanks for pointing out that physical therapists can help with incontinence symptoms, since the issues stem from a muscle group that’s no longer working how it should. I’ve been doing a regular pelvic floor exercise program to help control my symptoms, but I hadn’t heard that combining exercise with physical therapy could be even more successful. I learned a lot about women’s health physical therapy, so thanks for sharing!

    I found it very interesting when you talked about every treatment option to be chosen for pelvic floor dysfunction will include some sort of exercise. After having my second child, I’m have a lot of pain and weakness with my pelvic muscles, so I want to see if I qualify for needing physiotherapy. Thank you for the information about needing to strengthen those muscles if you need surgery to increase the length of time the sling or mesh may be effective.
