Uterine Fibroids Q & A

What are uterine fibroids?

Uterine fibroids are noncancerous growths in your uterus that typically develop during your childbearing years. 

There’s no clear understanding of what causes uterine fibroids. You might be at increased risk for these growths if you have a hormone imbalance, genetic issues, or a family history of fibroids.

Fibroids don’t increase your risk for cancer, but they can grow large enough to cause symptoms that disrupt your life.

What are the symptoms of uterine fibroids?

Uterine fibroids range from very small to large masses that cause an enlargement in your uterus. You might also experience disruptive symptoms like:

  • Pelvic pain
  • Lower back pain
  • Frequent urination
  • Heavy menstrual bleeding
  • Spotting or bleeding between periods

To help address painful uterine fibroids, Triggered Physical Therapy customizes a treatment plan to meet your needs. They recommend seeking an evaluation if your uterine fibroid symptoms interfere with your quality of life or your sexual health.

How does physical therapy treat uterine fibroids?

Physical therapy is an effective treatment option for pain related to uterine fibroids. The team at Triggered Physical Therapy focuses on exercises that relieve pain and keep your pelvic floor muscles strong.

You can also benefit from physical therapy exercises to help your body heal if you need surgery to remove large or painful fibroids. The team teaches you techniques to boost blood circulation to your pelvic floor so your uterus can heal faster and more efficiently.

Other available treatment options for uterine fibroid pain include:

Manual muscle manipulation

In some cases, the physical therapy team manually manipulates your pelvic floor muscles. Stretching these muscles helps them relax to help prevent additional pain.

SoLá pelvic therapy

SoLá pelvic therapy is another treatment option for pelvic pain relating to uterine fibroids. Triggered Physical Therapy uses a SoLá therapy wand to deliver activating light energy into the muscles in your pelvic region.

This light energy stimulates your body at a cellular level, triggering its natural healing response to repair damaged tissue in your uterus and relieve persistent pelvic pain.
