Pelvic Floor Rehabilitation

At York Hospital, our pelvic health physical therapists are specifically trained to evaluate and treat different types of pelvic floor concerns. We work with all ages and genders with the focus of serving individual patients and helping achieve your best quality of life.

A coordinated care effort

Your comfort is important to us and we will work with you to determine an effective plan of care and treatment plan depending on your goals. We work closely with primary care and specialists in OBGYN, urogynecology, urology, gastroenterology, oncology, and pain specialists to coordinate your care.

We treat a variety of symptoms that can sometimes stem from pregnancy and childbirth, abdominal or pelvic surgeries, as well as other chronic disorders and other age- or trauma-related conditions.

Specific concerns that we treat are:

  • Bladder concerns, including leakage, urgency/frequency/overactive bladder, difficulty emptying, or pain with urination
  • Bowel concerns, including chronic constipation, difficulty passing bowel or incomplete emptying, bowel urgency, fecal leakage of solid stool, gas or mucus, pain with bowel movements.
  • Pelvic pain or discomfort, including the tailbone, lower abdomen, lower back, groin, buttock or hip; pain in the genital region.
  • Pelvic organ prolapse or the feeling of pressure or heaviness in the pelvic region.
  • Sexual concerns, including pain with sexual activity, painful speculum exams or inability to tolerate tampon insertion; erectile dysfunction.
  • Pelvic cancer rehabilitation, including restoring function and managing pain and scar tissue discomfort after surgery and/or pelvic radiation for cervical, uterine or colorectal cancer.
  • Pregnancy and postpartum pelvic floor therapy, including treatment of pelvic girdle pain, diastasis recti abdominis (separation of abdominal muscles), Cesarean scar weakness and/or pain, perineal healing postpartum and urinary and bowel leakage.
  • Pre- and postoperative care for pelvic surgery, such as hysterectomy, pelvic reconstruction, bladder sling, sacrocolpopexy and other procedures.
