Incontinence and genital pain

Perineal and pelvic rehabilitation is a field of physiotherapy that yields excellent results in the treatment of health problems related to male and female genital functions.

The pelvic floor muscles play a major role in urinary and fecal continence, body stabilization, and sexual functions. Like with other body muscles, pain can result when these muscles weaken, become tense, or suffer from impaired coordination.

Therefore, the goal of perineal rehabilitation is to stabilize urinary system functioning, increase pelvic floor strength, and reduce chronic pain.

Here are some examples of conditions that can be evaluated and treated by physiotherapy professional:

  • Bladder problems (urinary incontinence, unusually frequent urination, difficulties urinating, etc.)
  • Problems related to the rectum and anus (constipation, involuntary leakage of gas or stool, anal pain, etc.)
  • Problems with the vulva and vagina (pain during intercourse; pain in the vulva, clitoris, and vestibule; prolapse; etc.)
