Pelvic Floor Rehabilitation
Pelvic floor physical therapy involves the pelvic floor muscle group, which is responsible for a variety of functions. These muscles support pelvic organs, assist in bowel and bladder control, and contribute to sexual health. A person may be referred to pelvic floor physical therapy to treat incontinence, difficulty with urination or bowel movements, constipation, chronic pelvic pain, and painful intercourse. Both men and women can benefit from pelvic floor therapy.
Pelvic Floor rehabilitation is available at Rockville General Hospital.
