Why Choose
Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy
Current research demonstrates that conservative, physical therapy interventions result in the best possible outcomes for those suffering from pelvic floor symptoms while allowing for long term benefits to be observed more constantly than with surgical or pharmaceutical interventions. These interventions include, minimally invasive treatments involving neuromuscular retraining of the pelvic floor musculature for decreased symptoms and a gradual return to the individual's preferred level of function.
