PREGNANCY & POSTPARTUM
Most folks know that physical therapists treat muscles and soft tissue (think tennis elbow or sprained ankle).
Pelvic physical therapy is the same thing! Often, it is the musculoskeletal system surrounding the pelvis that causes pelvic pain.

THE KEGELS DILEMMA
After delivery, most women are told to “do Kegels,” which are exercises meant to strengthen a weak pelvic floor.
If strengthening is the best therapeutic option, the issue is that 51% of women do not perform a Kegel properly with verbal cueing alone, according to a recent research survey.
Sometimes, if a problem is stemming from tight pelvic floor muscles, strengthening can increase pelvic pain!
Is “doing Kegels” simple advise? Yes. Healing and helpful? Often not.
