What is pelvic floor rehabilitation?
The muscles in the interior and bottom of your pelvis make up your “pelvic floor”. These muscles, believe it or not, are what your body uses to maintain its core. The pelvic floor is required to support your entire back and full body functions. Despite popular belief to the contrary, a pelvic floor is a muscle group that both men and women have and require.
There are symptoms that you may need pelvic floor rehabilitation, and many of our patients travel a winding path before arriving at our pelvic floor treatment facility. It can sometimes be difficult to diagnose at first because so many symptoms and many physiological functions are linked to the pelvic floor.
