How can pelvic floor PT help with managing symptoms of lower back pain?
Because of the close proximity of the pelvic floor and core to the lower back, pelvic floor physical therapists are the best physical therapists to treat back pain! Pelvic PTs can assess whether the pelvic floor is pulling on the lower back and creating pain. They can also assess whether there is deep core and pelvic floor weakness that is creating overuse of your lower back muscles.
Pelvic floor physical therapists can perform hands-on manual treatments, instruct on individualized exercises and teach lifestyle modifications aimed at addressing the root cause of your low back pain.
"It felt so good to have a doctor actually care about the total outcome and really establishing the root cause rather than jumping to resolution of an individual symptom. I didn't realize I was in so much daily pain until it was resolved."
