Pelvic Floor Therapy at KMC

Restore Your Function and Reclaim Your Freedom

The ligaments and muscles that comprise our pelvic floor region work around the clock to support organs such as the bladder, colon, rectum, uterus, or prostate. These lesser-known supports perform many crucial functions vital to our well-being and quality of life. Pelvic health issues such as incontinence or pelvic organ prolapse can arise when the muscles or ligaments in this region aren't working as they should. While pelvic health issues can affect both women and men, women are disproportionately impacted, with roughly one-third of all women experiencing dysfunction at some point during their lifetime.

Symptoms of Pelvic Floor Dysfunction Include:

  • Heightened frequency or urgency with urination
  • Urinary or fecal incontinence
  • Pressure or pain in the rectal or pelvic area
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Incomplete emptying of the bladder or bowel

Understanding Compromised Pelvic Health

The cause of pelvic floor dysfunction (PFD) varies from person to person. For some individuals, PFD may result from physical trauma, while others may experience it due to weakness or rigidity in the pelvic muscles. In other cases, symptoms of dysfunction result from prolapse in one or more of the pelvic organs, known as Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP). This condition occurs when the bladder, uterus, and/or bowel descends to a lower position in the body. Symptoms of POP will intensify along with the degree and progression of prolapse.

Many who suffer from compromised pelvic health also suffer chronic low-back pain without realizing one is likely a cause or a symptom of the other. Pelvic Floor Therapists work closely with their patients to address underlying causes and associated symptoms, including those that may lack an obvious connection.

Common Causes of PFD Include:

  • Pregnancy and childbirth
  • Pelvic organ prolapse
  • Chronic cough
  • Endometriosis
  • Surgical trauma
  • Physical injury
  • Poor posture
  • Low back injury or weakness
