Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy for Women & Pregnancy in Boise

In Boise, Ascend Physical Therapy leads the way in addressing pelvic floor health for women, especially during and after pregnancy, and through every stage of their life. Understanding the role of pelvic health in overall well-being, our clinic provides specialized care that not only addresses common pelvic floor pain but also empowers women to manage their health proactively.

How Does the Pelvic Floor Affect Women's Physical Health?

The pelvic floor is a group of muscles that support the pelvic organs and assist in the functionality of the urinary and reproductive systems. Issues like pelvic floor dysfunction, incontinence, and pelvic pain can significantly affect a woman's quality of life. Effective management of these conditions through physical therapy can lead to improved bodily functions, reduced pain, and enhanced sexual health.

What Pelvic Floor Changes Can Occur During Pregnancy?

Pregnancy dramatically alters the pelvic region. The weight and position of the growing baby can strain the pelvic floor muscles, leading to conditions such as diastasis recti abdominis, pregnancy-related low back and hip pain, pelvic organ prolapse, and sacroiliac joint pain. Moreover, hormonal changes can lead to muscle relaxation, which may increase the risk of pelvic floor disorders.

How Can Physical Therapy Improve Postpartum Recovery?

Postpartum recovery is a critical time for new mothers. Physical therapy of the pelvic floor addresses post-surgical issues from cesarean sections or episiotomies, and non-surgical issues like muscle tension and spasms. Ascend Physical Therapy offers peripartum and postpartum rehabilitation programs designed to strengthen the pelvic floor, alleviate pain, and correct posture, facilitating a smoother and faster recovery.

Expectant mothers in Boise can benefit greatly from engaging in proactive pelvic health practices. Regular pelvic floor exercises, supervised by a physical therapist, can help manage symptoms and prepare the body for childbirth. It's also important to address any pelvic pain or instability early on in the pregnancy with professional guidance to prevent long-term issues.

Additionally, understanding and managing conditions such as constipation and overactive bladder during pregnancy through dietary changes and physical therapy can contribute to overall pelvic health and comfort for the rest of your life.
