Pelvic Floor Therapy – Sarasota Florida



Pelvic floor therapy is an important part of maintaining a healthy body. The pelvis is the foundation for the upper and lower body, and it is important to keep it strong and healthy. Pelvic floor therapy can help to strengthen the muscles and ligaments around the pelvis, and can also help to rehabilitate after an injury.



Bowel and bladder function are essential for overall health and well-being. However, many people experience problems with these functions due to pelvic floor dysfunction. Pelvic floor dysfunction can be caused by a variety of factors, including psychological factors and musculoskeletal problems. It is possible that you have never heard of therapy for pelvic floor dysfunction, but if you experience problems in either of these areas, a pelvic floor therapist may be just what you need. 



Pelvic floor dysfunction is a condition that can affect both men and women. It occurs when the muscles of the pelvic floor are weak or unable to properly support the pelvis. This can lead to problems with urination, sexual function, and bowel movements. Pelvic floor dysfunction can be caused by childbirth, surgery, aging, or other factors. Treatment may involve therapy, lifestyle changes, or medication.



As your body changes during pregnancy, it’s important to be aware of the musculoskeletal and hormonal changes that can affect pelvic floor function. During pregnancy, the weight of your growing baby puts extra pressure on your pelvic floor muscles. These muscles support your bladder and help control bowel movements. 

Pregnancy and childbirth also cause changes in the hormone levels in your body. This can lead to weakened pelvic floor muscles and decreased muscle tone.

After childbirth, it’s important to give your body time to recover. This includes giving your pelvic floor muscles time to heal and regain strength. You can do this by doing pelvic floor exercises and avoiding activities that put strain on your pelvic floor.



Prostate cancer is a type of cancer that affects the prostate, a small gland in the male reproductive system. The prostate is located just below the bladder and in front of the rectum. Prostate cancer usually occurs in men over the age of 50.

Prostate cancer can be a serious health condition, but it is often treatable. After treatment, many men experience side effects that can impact their quality of life. These side effects can include urinary incontinence, sexual dysfunction, and bowel problems.

Pelvic floor therapy can be an effective treatment for these side effects. Pelvic floor muscle exercises can help to improve urinary incontinence, bowel problems, and sexual function. 



Most people experience some type of back pain at some point in their lives. For some, the pain is merely an annoyance. But for others, the pain is chronic and debilitating. Scoliosis is a condition that can cause severe back pain and fatigue. The curved spine puts pressure on the neck and back muscles, which can lead to slouching and poor posture. Therapy can help to relieve the pain and improve posture.



Sexual dysfunction is a common problem that can affect men and women of all ages. There are many different causes of sexual dysfunction, but often it is caused by pelvic floor muscle weakness.

Pelvic floor muscles are the muscles that support the bladder, uterus, and rectum. These muscles can become weak due to pregnancy, childbirth, aging, or other factors. This can lead to urinary incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, and sexual dysfunction.

Pelvic floor therapy can be an effective treatment for pelvic floor muscle weakness. Therapists can teach you how to properly strengthen and tone your pelvic floor muscles. This can improve your urinary function and sexual health.
