What is Pelvic Floor Therapy?
Pelvic floor therapy is a specialized form of physical therapy that focuses on the muscles, tissues and organs that make up the pelvic floor. The pelvic floor is a group of muscles and tissues that provide support for the bladder, uterus and rectum. When these muscles are weak or damaged, it can lead to a variety of symptoms, including:
- Pelvic pain
- Pain during sex
- Bowel and bladder issues
- Pelvic organ prolapse
It’s designed to strengthen these muscles and improve their function, which can alleviate these symptoms and improve your overall quality of life. At your initial session, our physical therapist will perform an evaluation to determine the extent of your pelvic floor dysfunction and identify any specific areas that need to be addressed. This evaluation may involve a physical examination of the pelvic region, as well as questions about your symptoms, medical history, and lifestyle.
How Does Pelvic Floor Therapy Work?
Pelvic floor therapy is tailored to each patient’s individual needs and may include a variety of techniques, including:
- Kegel exercises: These exercises involve contracting and relaxing the pelvic floor muscles, which can help improve their strength and control.
- Biofeedback: This technique involves using sensors to monitor the activity of the pelvic floor muscles and provide feedback on their function.
- Manual therapy: This may include massage, stretching or other hands-on techniques to help improve the mobility and function of the pelvic floor muscles.
- Education: We’ll work with you to develop an understanding of your pelvic floor and how to properly care for it.
Our physical therapists are trained in the latest techniques and technologies to provide effective and comfortable therapy. During your sessions, you can expect to work one-on-one with our experienced physical therapist who will guide you through each exercise and provide feedback on your progress.

“I originally came to Ginger because I wanted questions about my pelvic floor. I just have to say that I don’t look forward to my Obgyn visits and Ginger made something that could have been awkward easy! She is so incredibly down to earth and easy to talk to which is important in this area of work. When we started, she’s given me some “homework” that has helped a lot and given me good information. An added benefit has been dry needling! I have a very strenuous job and carry stress in a menagerie of places….she gave me more pain relief in one session then I’d had after two years of body work! Needless to say…..Ginger is fantastic and I’m so grateful to have found her!”
“Highly recommend Ginger!! During my last pregnancy in 2017, I had severe SI Joint, hip, and pelvic pain that at times made it almost impossible to even walk. My doctor referred me to Ginger for PT. She worked for one of the main hospitals at the time. She was amazing and helped get me to a point where I could function mostly pain free during the rest of the pregnancy and care for my other children. So when I sprained my ankle a few months ago and it wouldn’t heal and it triggered some issues in my hips again, I tracked down Ginger to help get me back on track. As amazing as she was before, the treatment has been even better now that she has her own practice. She can spend more time with me at each appointment and responds quickly if I have questions while doing PT exercises at home. I never feel rushed and she listens to my feedback and seems to ask the right questions to really get to the issues so she can come up with treatments. She uses multiple treatments, including dry needling (it really works to speed up the healing process!) to treat the pain. When I started I was in pain every day. It limited my ability to workout and was even painful to go on walks with the kids or doing anything active. Picking up and carrying my 15 month old was a challenge and it was affecting many of my daily tasks. After 5 sessions of treatment, I am 95% better and I feel more equipped to know what to do if I start to have any issues.”
