About physical therapy for pelvic pain and incontinence, as well as for women during and after pregnancy.

Pelvic Health PT is a specialized orthopedic approach to treating women and men who suffer from conditions that stem from dysfunctional pelvic floor musculature.  Pelvic floor dysfunction can arise from pregnancy, injury, infection, childbirth, surgeries, constipation, medication, or neuromuscular diseases.  This dysfunction can then lead to a variety of issues like urinary or fecal incontinence, urgency, pelvic pain, bowel disorders, or sexual dysfunction.  At Langford, our pelvic PT’s will give you an hour of 1 on 1 care, that will focus on your specific issues and help solve them with knowledge, compassion, and care.

What to expect during treatment here at Langford:

Upon your initial evaluation, your history or referral will lead the clinician to appropriate examination.  This will include a comprehensive musculoskeletal examination that will focus on all components that may be contributing to your issue.  All pelvic floor therapists have their own private room for treatment purposes.  If you need to have a pelvic examination, it is only done with your consent; and usually internal treatment will not be given on the initial examination.   Come dressed in comfortable clothing that lets you move easily, and know that you can ask your physical therapist anything about your symptoms, treatment, or options at any time!
