If you are a woman suffering from occasional or chronic pelvic pain, physical therapy can help. Pelvic pain can occur for a vast number of reasons, and a certain pelvic therapy known as “pelvic floor rehabilitation” can help reduce or eliminate the pain and symptoms you are experiencing. Typical patients who would be strong candidates for our pelvic floor rehabilitation treatments include: • Postpartum women. • Postmenopausal women. • Women with pelvic organ prolapse. • Women dealing with urinary or fecal incontinence. • Women dealing with pain during intercourse. If your pain is limiting you from living your daily life, contact FyzicalTherapy & Balance Centers today toscheduleanappointmentwithoneofourqualifiedphysical therapists! Why am I experiencing pelvic pain? The pelvic area is a complex and important part of the body that serves several functions, especially for women. Pelvic pain can occur at different points during your menstrual cycle, during pregnancy, after giving birth, after surgery, or as a result of an underlying condition, such as endometriosis. Some pelvic conditions may also result in painful intercourse or infertility issues, which can be addressed and possibly fixed through pelvic floor rehabilitation. Some of the most common pelvic conditions that our physical therapists treat include: •Postpartumpelvicpain. Aftergivingbirth, it iscommon fornewmothers toexperience strained muscles and/or connective tissue damage in their pelvic floor. Pelvic floor rehabilitation helps in reducing pain, in addition to strengthening any damaged muscles or tissues. FIND RELIEF FOR YOUR PELVIC PAIN TODAYWITH THE HELP OF PHYSICAL THERAPY

• Pain following abdominal surgery. If you are recovering from a recent surgical procedure,pelvicfloor rehabilitationcanhelp inbreakingupscar tissue, improving strength, and regaining range of motion in your abdomen/pelvic region. • Endometriosis. Endometriosis can affect the bones, muscles, ligaments, and nerves in the pelvic region. Pelvic floor rehabilitation can help reduce the pain and bloating that you may be experiencing with endometriosis, in addition to strengthening the pelvic floor muscles. • Urinary frequency or leakage. A physical therapist can help determine the root of your problem with urinary incontinence, rather than simply treating the symptoms. Pelvic floor rehabilitation will focus on strengthening the muscles under your bladder in order to treat and eliminate incontinence issues. • Constipation. Pelvic floor rehabilitation can loosen and relax the muscles in your pelvic and anal areas, which can help relieve and eliminate constipation. While these are just a few of the most common conditions of pelvic dysfunction that can be treated with physical therapy, there are a number of additional pelvic conditions that PT treatments can relieve. For example, painful intercourse and infertilityproblemsmayalsobe improvedwithpelvic therapy.Some lesscommon conditions that can be treated also include pelvic organ prolapse, dyspareunia, and diastasis recti.

WHAT CAN I EXPECTWITH PELVIC FLOOR REHABILITATION?

This specific form of physical therapy works on strengthening the muscles, tendons, and ligaments of the pelvic floor. When muscles in the pelvic area become tight or weak, your daily life can be greatly affected, as this region helps in supporting the core of your body and is an integral part of everyday movement. One of our dedicated physical therapists will evaluate your medical history and provide a musculoskeletal examination to determine what specific type of treatment you’ll need. This may include proactive and/or preventative treatments. For example, pelvic floor rehabilitation can help prepare a woman for childbirth by ensuring an easier delivery and possibly preventing the need for a C-section. Some common techniques used during pelvic floor rehabilitation include: • Postural exercises. These exercises are aimed at improving posture and strengthening thepelvicfloormuscles thataffectposture.Theseexercises are typically done with large therapy or medicine balls. • Myofascial exercises. These exercises will target the pelvic floor muscles and connecting fascia. This treatment may include light exercise, in addition to stretches and massage, in order to target painful trigger points and provide relief. • Diaphragmatic breathing. Deep breathing exercises allow your diaphragm to expand and contract, which helps in relaxing muscles in the pelvic area. When the muscles are relaxed, they will drop and lengthen, providing pain relief and allowing for regained function. • Relaxation techniques. Relaxation is a large part of physical therapy. It allows your muscles to ease tension, making it easier for them to be

stretched and massaged. Your physical therapist may suggest some certain techniques, such as guided imagery or biofeedback, in order to help you relax. If you are suffering from pelvic pain, don’t wait any longer to contact Fyzical Therapy & Balance Centers. We’ll help correct your pelvic floor problems so you can get back to living your life comfortably!

SIMPLE GRILLED SALMON & VEGETABLES

INGREDIENTS • 1 medium zucchini, halved lengthwise • 2 red, orange and/or yellow bell peppers, trimmed, halved and seeded • 1 medium red onion, cut into 1-inch wedges

• 1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil • ½ tsp salt, divided • ½ tsp ground pepper • 1¼ pounds salmon fillet, cut into 4 portions

• ¼ cup thinly sliced fresh basil • 1 lemon, cut into 4 wedges

DIRECTIONS Preheat grill to medium-high. Brush zucchini, peppers and onion with oil and sprinkle with ¼ teaspoon salt. Sprinkle salmon with pepper and the remaining ¼ teaspoon salt. Place the vegetables and the salmon pieces, skin-side down, on the grill. Cook the vegetables, turning once or twice, until just tender and grill marks appear, 4 to 6 minutes per side. Cook the salmon, without turning, until it flakes when tested with a fork, 8 to 10 minutes. When cool enough to handle, roughly chop the vegetables and toss together in a large bowl. Remove the skin from the salmon fillets (if desired) and serve alongside the vegetables. Garnish each serving with 1 tablespoon basil and serve with a lemon wedge.
