Pelvic health refers to the well-being and proper function of the pelvic region, which includes the pelvic floor muscles, pelvic organs, and surrounding structures. It's an important aspect of overall health that can have a significant impact on a person's quality of life.

What are the Pelvic Muscles?

The pelvic floor muscles are a group of muscles that form a sling-like structure at the base of the pelvis. These muscles support the pelvic organs (bladder, uterus or prostate, and rectum) and play a role in bowel, bladder, and sexual function

You need your pelvis to walk.

The pelvis forms a strong foundation for the spinal cord and legs to attach themselves to. If you injure your pelvic bone or pelvic muscles, it can significantly affect how you walk, stand & sit. ⁠ ⁠

How Can

Manual Therapy: Hands-on techniques, including internal and external assessment and treatment of pelvic floor muscles, can help release tension and improve muscle function.

Pelvic Floor Muscle Exercises: Tailored exercises can help strengthen, relax, or coordinate the pelvic floor muscles.

Biofeedback: Specialized tools provide visual or auditory feedback on pelvic muscle activity, helping individuals learn proper muscle control.

Education and Lifestyle Modification: Patients receive education on pelvic anatomy, posture, and strategies for managing symptoms.


Behavioral Strategies: Techniques for improving bowel and bladder habits, managing urgency, and reducing pain.


Relaxation Techniques: Exercises to reduce muscle tension and stress in the pelvic region.


Therapeutic Modalities: The use of modalities like electrical stimulation to aid in muscle retraining
