You're wondering whether you need pelvic floor physical therapy, you are NOT alone.

1-in-4 women has pelvic floor dysfunction, and the prevalence increases with age—but it's not just older women who struggle.

Here's the truth:

 

Men and women of ALL ages experience the telltale signs and symptoms of pelvic floor dysfunction, including:

  • Urinary frequency (you go a lot)

  • Painful urination (when you go, it hurts)

  • Incomplete emptying (when you go, it doesn't feel like you empty your bladder all the way, or your stream starts and stops)

  • Stress incontinence (you go accidentally when you cough, sneeze, run, jump, pick up your kid, lift a barbell, or do some other physical movement) 

  • Constipation (you can't go—and even when you can, it often feels difficult or uncomfortable)

  • A feeling of heaviness or bulging in your rectum or genitals

  • Unexplained pain in the back, pelvis, genitals, bladder, or rectum

  • Problems with intimacy and pain during sex in women
