Pelvic Floor Dysfunction

Pelvic floor rehabilitation is a term that describes an approach to improving the strength and function of the muscles that support your bladder, urethra and other organs within the pelvis.

Apex Physical Therapy has pelvic floor experts at our Cheney and North Spokane locations specializing in private one-on-one Pelvic Floor Rehabilitation.

What is Pelvic Floor Dysfunction?

Pelvic Floor Dysfunction (PFD) is classified as a problem with the group of muscles called the levator ani which is a broad, thin muscle situated on either side of the pelvis. These muscles stretch from the pubic bone to the tail bone creating the “floor” of the pelvis. Having pelvic floor issues is a very common ailment that affects many men and women. Many times, individuals and referring physicians fail to recognize PFD or seek treatment for these conditions.
