WHAT IS THE PELVIC FLOOR?

The pelvic floor is a bowel shaped group of muscles that sits within your pelvis. It is involved in almost everything we do, including: bowel, bladder, sexual function, respiration, lymphatic drainage, holding up your organs, and the gait cycle (walking). There can be dysfunction in these muscles or in the tissue that surrounds and interacts with these muscles (fascia, nerves, etc). Tightness, weakness, and/or poor coordination in these muscles can lead to the symptoms listed above, and can be treated through pelvic health physical therapy.

HAVE YOU TRIED PELVIC HEALTH PHYSICAL THERAPY AND ARE WONDERING HOW WE’RE DIFFERENT?

At Catalyst, we strive to make sure your body is working as a whole. Because your pelvic floor is involved in every aspect of your life, we want to ensure we’re assessing your pelvic floor throughout your daily activities. Working directly with your pelvic floor is a great addition to any treatment session, but we also want to ensure we load the pelvic floor and retrain how it moves when you’re up and moving in your daily life. At the initial evaluation, we perform a functional assessment of how you move in all 3 different planes of motion. We may also assess your core control and how you’re squatting, jumping, and balancing. An internal assessment may be performed on the first day if there’s enough time, and only with your consent.
