How can pelvic floor PT help with managing symptoms of bowel incontinence?
Pelvic floor therapy aims to address the weaknesses within the pelvic floor, core and hip muscles. The goal of pelvic floor therapy is to resolve symptoms through teaching you how to manage bowel urgency and manage intra-abdominal pressure increases during activities.
Pelvic floor therapists provide hand-on manual treatments, individualized exercises and discuss lifestyle modifications in order to reduce bowel leakage and allow you to improve your activity level, with little to no symptoms.
