Pelvic Floor Dysfunction - Breakaway Physical Therapy can help

When it comes to living with Pelvic Floor Dysfunction, everybody we see wants to know:

"Why is This Happening to me?"

or

“Why Am I Still Suffering with Incontinence, Prolapse or Pelvic Pain After Dealing With It For 6 Months OR much longer?

Most people hope that when they have urinary incontinence, bowel incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse (the bladder, uterus or rectum is falling out) or pelvic pain, it will simply go away on its own.

That one morning they will wake up and “magically” it will disappear ... But then 6 months later you begin to realize that you are still living every day with leakage, your pelvic organs bulging or pelvic pain that is often even worse than it was when it began.

Does that sound Like You?

Does it seem like no one is really listening to you and dismisses you? Everyone tells you that “it’s just a fact of life as you get older”. Did you go to the Doctors’ about your pelvic pain, and the Doctor tells you to rest and “try these painkillers” and “see how it goes”? We hear these reports every day at our Physical Therapy office.

Then, often 6 weeks later, they end up going back to the Doctor again because it hasn’t gotten any better. Worse, they’re often given yet another prescription of even stronger pills and advised “to just relax” so that things will get better.

We also see quite often in our office that patients go into to see the Doctor for their leakage or feelings of falling out in the pelvic floor to just be told to do kegels without any guidance and offered varying surgeries without trying anything else first.

Has that Ever happened to you?

Have you been told different things, by different people about what the problem is or how to solve it? Maybe you think you have a problem in your abdomen- but it’s actually your pelvic floor where the problem is originating? It’s a very confusing part of the body to work out where the problem is coming from because there are so many muscles that all work so closely together. Getting information from many different sources often leads people to procrastinate and put off deciding what to do to help fix their Pelvic Floor Dysfunction.

What’s WORSE, many people just end just accepting it as ‘part of life’ - as if it’s normal, as if it “has” to be that way. In fact, this is probably the same thing that some of your friends and family told you…“it’s just what happens as we age”. Pelvic Floor Dysfunction may be COMMON, but it is NOT normal!

Is This How You Feel?

If you’re currently living with Pelvic Floor Dysfunction, here’s 7 more reasons why it could be lasting longer than it should:

  • frown-o
    1. You thought it would go away on its own - but it didn’t
  • frown-o
    2. You went to the Doctor who told you to relax and take medications- but the pills did nothing to help, and as soon as they wore off, the pelvic floor problems returned again
  • frown-o
    3. A family member, or friend, told you that everybody gets Pelvic Floor Dysfunction as they get older, so you just accepted it
  • frown-o
    4. You sought help from other Healthcare Professionals or a Physical Therapist in the past, but nothing they said or did seemed to help
  • frown-o
    5. You started modifying workouts or following some online programs, but nothing has changed your leakage with exercise
  • frown-o
    6. You tried different positions with intercourse, trying relaxing and more lubrication…but it still very painful to be intimate
  • frown-o
    7. You have been doing a million kegels a day and these is still no change in your incontinence or prolapse

What can I do to get rid Of Pelvic Floor Dysfunction ?...

Well, here's 4 things you can do:

  • meh-o
    1. First off and the most important, you need to make a decision about getting help. I can’t even count the number of people that have told me how long they procrastinated about seeking help, thinking that their leakage or pelvic pain will ‘just go away with time’, only to still be suffering 6 months down the line, still dealing with it, and nothing’s changed…Or it gets worse.
  • meh-o
    2. Next, do the RIGHT exercises - one of the best things to help you ease your Pelvic Floor Dysfunction is to do the correct series of progressed exercises - the right exercises given to you by a Pelvic Floor Physical Therapist will allow you reduce your pelvic pain to make intimacy more enjoyable, stop your leakage, and reduce that pressure or “falling out” feeling in your pelvis - and make sure that you get to the root of what’s causing the problem, so it won’t come back anytime soon.
  • meh-o
    3. Drink more and more waterwe should be drinking half our body weight in ounces each day, which is a lot of water! Water is essential for the bladder to function properly so that urine is not irritating to the system (like when it’s concentrated), it’s important for emptying the bowels to prevent hard, dry stool, aids digestion, prevents dehydration and optimizes cellular function.
  • meh-o
    4. Get real, “hands-on” Physical TherapyPelvic Floor Physical Therapy is proven to help people with urinary and bowel incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse and pelvic pain. In fact, at Breakaway Physical Therapy it’s one of the most common injuries we see.

Late 20's from Crofton, MD

Every single day I was waking up with the pain. I figured the more I moved the better but the second I sat down, it was terrible and I didn't want to get on the floor and play with my daughter. It was affecting my life to a point where I couldn't stop thinking about the pain.

As a mom you can't say, oh, I'm in pain. You can't take a day off. Coming to Breakaway made a huge difference in my life. The pain is still there, but it's not as sharp as it used to be before. It's much better now. There's still a long way to go but I definitely see results

Physical therapy has made a huge difference in a positive way. I'm now able to be intimate with my husband. I am regaining bowel control. The best thing about coming for physical therapy at breakaway is just the people here, they're so accommodating, so friendly and wonderful.
