The Pelvic Floor Rehabilitation Clinic at OrthoVirginia provides treatment and education for patients who are dealing with pelvic issues such as:
- Chronic pain in the pelvis, abdomen, genitalia, buttocks, or lower back
- SI joint pain (causes lower back or leg pain)
- Coccydynia (pain in the tailbone, or coccyx)
- Painful urination
- Chronic constipation
- Testicular pain
- Urinary or bowel incontinence
- Painful intercourse
- Postpartum pelvic pain/weakness
- Post-prostatectomy dysfunction
- Interstitial cystitis (painful bladder syndrome)
- Pudendal neuralgia (pain in the rectum and genital areas, made worse when sitting)
Pain and weakness in the muscles, joints, and bones in and around your pelvis can be bothersome and sometimes severe.
Symptoms of pelvic floor dysfunction include urinary and bowel incontinence, urgent or painful urination, discomfort during intercourse, and more. Pelvic problems may be related to age, childbirth, surgery, or trauma. Many times, the pain or pressure is the result of excessive weakness or abnormal tightness in the muscles that support the lower pelvis. Pain can also be the result of a dysfunction in the lower back or pelvis, including the tailbone (coccyx), hip bone, or the sacroillac (SI) joints.
Let OrthoVirginia relieve your pelvic pain and weakness. At OrthoVirginia, we offer comprehensive treatment for a range of conditions in the pelvic floor, abdomen, and associated pelvic organs. Our centrally located Pelvic Floor Rehabilitation clinic at Bon Secours St. Francis Medical Center offers patients dealing with pelvic pain a private, comfortable setting for outpatient therapy services. We offer treatment for both men and women.
