Physical therapists help patients eliminate symptoms of pain and discomfort as a part of Pelvic Floor Dysfunction Treatment a program designed specifically for those experiencing symptoms like pelvic pain, pain with intercourse, perineal pain, tailbone and groin pain, urinary or fecal incontinence and constipation.

Hip abductor muscles are important muscles that not only contribute to our ability to stand, walk and rotate our leg with ease, but also ensure that the pelvis is stable and functioning properly.
Clamshells help to stabilize the pelvis by strengthening the surrounding musculature. Strong hips are important when it comes to the function of your pelvic floor and the prevention of pelvic pain and incontinence.
This move engages the abdominal muscles to promote pelvic stability.
