Triggered Physical Therapy designs an individualized treatment plan that provides you with long-lasting pain relief based on the cause of your pain and its severity.
There are several pelvic pain treatment options available at Triggered Physical Therapy.
Pelvic physical therapy is an effective, holistic treatment option for persistent pelvic pain. Triggered Physical Therapy uses pelvic physical therapy techniques to help restore the flexibility and strength in your pelvic floor muscles.
Pelvic physical therapy also targets the joints in your pelvic floor region to relieve inflammation and pain due to arthritis and age-related degeneration. If you have difficulty tolerating menstrual cramps and pain, monthly physical therapy sessions can provide relief.
Your physical therapist will show you how to identify and use the muscles in your pelvic floor and abdomen during exercises. They can also help you stretch and retrain these muscles so they continue working normally.
In cases of chronic or severe pelvic pain, your physical therapist can manually manipulate your pelvic floor muscles internally or externally. This may help to relieve your discomfort and pain.
Another innovative option for relieving persistent pelvic pain is SoLá pelvic therapy. This noninvasive treatment uses activating light energy to stimulate your body’s natural healing process at a cellular level.
