The pelvic floor is an important structure responsible for supporting the organs in the pelvis. When the pelvic floor weakens, women may experience many problems, including incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse. The experienced practitioners at OB/GYN Specialists of South Miami offer pelvic floor therapy services to help women improve the strength and integrity of their pelvis. To make an appointment for pelvic floor therapy in Miami, contact OB/GYN Specialists of South Miami today.
The pelvic floor is a complex structure composed of muscles, connective tissues, and nerves in your pelvis. The purpose of this structure is to support your uterus, bladder, rectum, and vagina, as well as to help these organs function properly.
Pelvic floor dysfunction occurs when the pelvic floor stops working like it should. Without treatment, pelvic floor dysfunction may get worse over time.
In many cases, pelvic floor dysfunction is the result of several different issues. Some of the most common factors that contribute to pelvic floor dysfunction include:
If your pelvic floor isn’t working properly, you may notice that you leak urine occasionally. In some cases, you may lose control of urine flow entirely. Pelvic floor dysfunction can also cause muscle spasms in your pelvic, constipation, a feeling of pressure in the pelvis, or a bulge in your vagina.
The purpose of pelvic floor rehabilitation is to strengthen the muscles in your pelvic floor so they can function properly. With stronger muscles, you’ll find that many of the symptoms of pelvic floor dysfunction disappear. Pelvic floor rehabilitation may include exercises performed in the clinic, as well as exercises at home.
Pelvic floor rehabilitation is less invasive than many of the other treatments available for this condition. It’s safe and unlikely to cause any negative effects.
If your pelvic floor dysfunction is severe, or if you have damage in the pelvic floor, more intensive treatments may be necessary. For example, some women with pelvic floor dysfunction may need electrical stimulations or medical devices to hold certain organs in place. In some cases, surgery may be necessary.
If you have pelvic floor dysfunction, the doctors at OB/GYN Specialists of South Miami help you understand all of the treatment options available to you. With their help, you’ll be able to determine whether you need pelvic floor therapy or a more intensive treatment.
