How can pelvic floor PT help with managing symptoms of constipation?
Pelvic floor physical therapists will assess any other contributing factors to your constipation including pelvic floor muscle tension, hydration status, bowel habits, toileting mechanics, and lifestyle factors that may be playing a role in your symptoms.
Pelvic floor therapists provide hand-on manual treatments, individualized exercises and discuss lifestyle modifications in order to reduce pelvic floor muscle tension and pain to alleviate constipation. The key to managing constipation is to discover the root cause of it.
