Types of Treatment
Pelvic Floor Physical Therapists specialize in pelvic dysfunction, treating both men and women.
Many people suffer with pelvic floor dysfunction, which may be caused from muscles that are too tight or too relaxed. The pelvic floor muscles attach to the front, back and female pelvic floor getty image ides of the pelvic bone and sacrum. They are like a sling that supports the bladder, uterus, prostate and rectum. They also wrap around your urethra, rectum, and vagina (in women).
These muscles must be able to contract to maintain continence and relax to allow for urination, bowel movements, and in women, sexual intercourse. When these muscles are too tight or too relaxed you may have the following symptoms:
- Urinary frequency, urgency, hesitancy, stopping and starting of the urine stream, painful urination, or incomplete emptying
- Constipation, straining, pain with bowel movements
- Unexplained pain in your low back, pelvic region, hips, genital area, or rectum
- Pain during or after intercourse, orgasm, or sexual stimulation
- Pelvic floor muscle spasms

Here’s what some of our patients had to say
When I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease, I knew very little about it. I had read about and seen people who could not control the shaking in their hands and or legs. I did not expect the loss of my speaking skills. The loss has negatively affected my life more than any other condition I…
My assessment, treatment and customer service experience has been stellar! How observant, thorough and professional Aneesh, DPT was with me… wow. Tara, the PTA did a good job also and the atmosphere was so comfortable. At first I didn’t think I would like being in a large room exercising with others watching. It didn’t take…
Thank you again for your support and professional assistance. Beyond improvement in my voice quality, I also have a much-improved view of myself and my ability to communicate which may actually be worth more than the vocal adjustments.
“To Jennifer Gelb, My breathing’s good, I talk out loud, Of this, you can be proud. For you’re the one who got ‘er done, And made it so much fun. Jennifer, thanks for your encouragement, patience, and great smile!”
Without the help of each of my physical therapists I would not have achieved the goals I wanted to reach. Each one had a different method or tidbit of information that contributed to the success of my physical therapy.
Thank you for your patience, encouragement, dedication, and kindness shown to me during my rehab. Three months ago I came into Lake Centre for Rehab in a wheelchair unable to walk and today I walked in! My husband and I are forever grateful!
I have met many athletic trainers and physical therapist professionals in my 40 year athletic career however I have never met anyone with such a knowledgeable experience level, compassion, and interest to help others as Brett.
I was a patient at Lake Centre for Rehab prior to my left total knee replacement and following the surgery as well. The care and therapy that I was given at Highland Lakes was outstanding!
When I began, I had all the typical Parkinson’s symptoms. My voice was weak, I walked with a shuffle, I sat hunched over, and had trouble getting out of a chair. After four times a week and four weeks of hard work, those symptoms have been left in the dust.
After just 4 visits…I feel like a brand new person. Before, I could barely walk for 15 minutes without my back screaming in pain. Now I’m zooming through therapy and going on walks at home.
