Pelvic Floor Therapy

The UCA Women’s Center is proud to partner with Drayer Physical Therapy to offer Pelvic Floor Rehabilitation to those suffering from Pelvic Floor Disorders.

Pelvic floor physical therapy involves the pelvic floor muscle group, which is responsible for a variety of functions. These muscles support the pelvic organs, assist in bowel and bladder control, and contribute to sexual arousal and orgasm.  

Pelvic floor dysfunction occurs when a woman’s pelvic floor no longer functions as it should. It can cause the following symptoms:

  • Frequent urination or bladder leakage
  • Inability to finish a bowel movement or multiple bowel movements within a short timeframe
  • Constipation
  • Pain when urinating or having intercourse
  • Pain in your lower back, tailbone or pelvis
  • Fecal leakage

 If you are suffering from Pelvic Floor Dysfunction, a physical therapist will work to identify your individual pain points, including “joint dysfunction, muscle tightness, muscle weakness or imbalance or nerve involvement*,” and help customize a treatment plan for you.
