Pelvic Floor Rehab Q&A

What is pelvic floor rehab?

Pelvic floor rehab, or pelvic floor rehabilitation, is a form of therapy available at High Quality Home Therapy. Your pelvic floor consists of nerves, muscles, bones, ligaments, and tendons located at the base of the pelvis. 

Your pelvic floor supports pelvic organs responsible for multiple body functions — such as respiration, spinal stability, urinary continence, intra-abdominal pressure balance, and optimal sexual functioning.

Weak, spastic, tight, or uncoordinated pelvic floor muscles may contribute to health issues. Pelvic floor problems are common in adults and even in children, which is why pelvic floor rehab is such an effective treatment. See the High Quality Home Therapy team at the first sign of a problem.
