Five Misconceptions about Pelvic Therapy Treatment
Don’t let common misconceptions about pelvic floor dysfunction stop you from receiving treatment! Common misconceptions include:
Women are the only people who need pelvic therapy.
Some women do take part in pelvic therapy, however this condition is not gender-related. Both men and women (young and old) use this therapy to treat their issues.
Pelvic floor therapy only helps incontinence issues.
While pelvic therapy is a great resource to help reverse incontinence issues, it also treats urgency and pelvic pain. It can also be used to re-educate the pelvic floor muscles to restore and maintain health.
Kegel exercises will fix my problem.
Kegel exercises may help your issue; however, this may not be enough to ensure a complete fix. During your weekly sessions, your USGA healthcare professional will discuss your therapy plan and progress, and hopefully help you find success in this area.
Surgery will fix my pelvic floor dysfunction so I don’t need therapy.
Surgery is a great tool to fix this dysfunction. In order to achieve optimal results, we suggest performing pelvic therapy before and after surgery.
My eating and exercising habits aren’t related to my pelvic pain.
Unfortunately, this isn’t true. If you have unhealthy eating or exercising habits, it could actually be intensifying your symptoms. This is why it’s crucial for you to meet with one of our professionals to determine what is contributing to your pelvic floor dysfunction.
