What is a Pelvic Floor Physical Therapist?
Pelvic health PT’s have received advanced and specialized training in pelvic floor dysfunction and visceral manipulation and are familiar with the symptoms of endometriosis. Because of the lesions and scarring caused by endometriosis, adjacent pelvic musculature can become contracted creating an imbalance of soft tissue structures within the pelvis which may contribute to bowel and bladder issues, abdominal, hip, and back pain, and painful intercourse. A pelvic floor PT will work with you on returning your pelvic musculature to a balanced state, relieving contracted and scarred areas, and decreasing overall pain.
