What is Pelvic Health Physical Therapy and why is it Important?
Pelvic Health Physical Therapy is a specialized therapy that focuses on the health of the pelvic floor in relation to the rest of the body.
The pelvic floor is a group of muscles at the bottom of the pelvis. These muscles span from the tailbone/coccyx to the pubic bone or front of the pelvis and to each sit bone. You can envision it like a hammock or trampoline and its roles include continence control, organ support, and it is involved in sexual function. A Pelvic Health Physical Therapist is able to evaluate this muscle group and assess how it relates to your symptoms.
Our goal is to educate every patient we interact with to optimize their pelvic health and eliminate the "just deal with it" mindset of the past.Schedule an Appointment

What can you expect?
At Athletes Potential we provide one on one care where you can expect an in-depth evaluation of your mobility, strength, and movement patterns/strategies. The evaluation may or may not include an internal assessment to assess the tone, strength, quality of movement, and coordination of the pelvic floor muscles.
After your evaluation we will discuss a plan of care that focuses on having you return to the activities you love with confidence. This may include, education on behavioral techniques, pelvic floor muscle training, and home exercises.
Our goal is to demystify those “taboo” topics and have a space you feel comfortable discussing your questions and concerns. We are dedicated to helping you achieve your goals, whatever stage of life you are in.
Life is too short to avoid the activities you love.
