Pelvic Floor

Is Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy right for me?

At ProActive Physical Therapy, we recognize that many types of conditions can impact your ability to live an active and enjoyable life. These conditions are sometimes very common and obvious to others. However, in some cases, patients can suffer in silence from conditions that greatly limit the quality of life and impact personal relationships with others. For those patients, we offer an innovative approach, supportive environment, and compassionate understanding of the sensitive nature of the condition.

ProActive offers physical therapy services for female and male patients suffering from a wide variety of conditions, including but not limited to: incontinence, pelvic pain, postpartum weakness/laxity, pre and post surgical care, and pelvic organ prolapse. Molly Mikles, PT, DPT is a certified pelvic floor specialist who, along with her pelvic floor expertise, has a background in many common orthopedic and movement disorders that may overlap with your condition and be impacting your quality of life.

The goal of physical therapy is to normalize the pelvic floor and surrounding lumbopelvic muscle function/tone, control, and coordination. Your therapist will work specifically with you on motor control and neuromuscular awareness during functional activities, including specific exercises to ensure appropriate muscular strength and length as well as exercises for pelvic and core stability. Additionally, patient education plays a key role in modification of habits, diet, movements, and positions that contribute to the condition.
