New York City’s Pelvic Floor Dysfunction Specialists
Pelvic floor dysfunction occurs when you’re unable to control the lower muscles in your pelvis, which impacts your ability to have a normal bowel movement. This dysfunction can also affect other organs in your pelvic region, including the prostate (for men) and the bladder and uterus (for women). The most common cause of this dysfunction is trauma to the pelvis or childbirth. At Pivotal Physical Therapy, we can help your body heal and properly function in a way that relieves your pelvic muscle tension. We have over 30 years of experience, and our licensed clinicians and doctors will ensure your treatment meets your specific needs. Contact us today to learn more.

Our Specialized Treatments
With today’s modern medicine and understanding of pelvic floor dysfunction, this disease is extremely treatable. The most common method of treatment is using biofeedback, during which our skilled therapist will use specialized sensors to read how your pelvic muscles react and work. As you expand and relax these muscles, you’ll be given specific feedback on how to change and improve your muscle coordination. This technique has proven to be over 75% effective with patients and is completely noninvasive.
Medications and relaxation techniques may also be prescribed to help your body retune and function normally. We take pride in our ability to ensure our patients’ comfort and our success in dealing with pelvic disorders, and we’ll strive to exceed your expectations. When you need solutions to your pelvic pain problems, there’s no better choice than Pivotal Physical Therapy.
