What is Pelvic Health Rehabilitation?
Pelvic health rehab is a non-surgical approach to rehabilitation of dysfunctions in the pelvis that contribute to bowel, bladder, sexual health, and pain complaints. Approaches to these types of conditions include behavioral exercise, eductions, and functional re-training.
Most Common Risk Factors
- Having a baby, particularly if the baby is delivered vaginally.
- Having an injury, which may occur during hysterectomy (removal of the uterus) or another surgical procedure.
- Frequently doing things that increase pressure in the abdomen, such as straining during bowel movements or lifting heavy objects.
- Pelvic surgery or radiation treatments also can cause these disorders.
