Maintaining pelvic health is important for both men and women. The pelvic region is home to many vital organs, including the bladder, reproductive organs, and rectum. This makes it essential for proper urination, bowel movements, and sexual function. Unfortunately, pelvic health can often be neglected. This can lead to several problems, including incontinence, sexual dysfunction, and prolapse. At H2 Health, our physical therapists define and teach the most holistic ways to enhance pelvic health.
Pelvic Conditions Treated
Our pelvis contains many organs. At times, these organs function improperly and can cause serious problems. Fortunately, many of the pelvis-related problems can be managed effectively at H2 Health. Here are some of the pelvis-related pathologies.
Urinary incontinence refers to the leaking of urine without the intention of voiding. It occurs due many reasons, but the most common one is stress incontinence. Stress incontinence occurs when the pelvic muscles (external urethral sphincter, etc.) aren’t strong enough to hold the urine in the bladder. Women can often suffer from incontinence as their pelvic muscles are relatively weaker and they are involved in normal childbirth. The normal birthing process frequently tears the pelvic muscles that function as the bladder valves, causing incontinence.
Urinary incontinence also affects males, especially the elderly. Other causes of urinary incontinence include spinal cord injuries and brain injuries. H2 Health clinicians are trained in helping people treat all types of urinary incontinence. So, let us help you enjoy life through physical therapy!
Premature ejaculation is defined as ejaculation occurring too quickly or sooner than what their partner would like. Unfortunately, almost one in three men say that they have experienced premature ejaculation at some point in their sexual life. Premature ejaculation is treatable without medications. Our professional team will evaluate your cause and teach you various exercises and stretches to gain control of your pelvic muscles. Having a good and extended time with your partner won’t be a problem anymore!
Just like ejaculation, pelvic muscles have a role in maintaining an erection. If your muscles are too weak, you won’t be able to store blood in your penis for very long. Let us help you train your pelvic muscles in the right way to get a normal and healthy erection.
Similar to urinary incontinence, fecal incontinence occurs due to trauma to the external anal sphincter. As it is a voluntary muscle, fecal incontinence can be controlled using various physical therapy exercises. H2 Health physical therapists will develop a tailored plan for treating your fecal incontinence.
