Pelvic floor physical therapy (PFPT) aims at lengthening, strengthening and realigning muscle and tissue in the pelvic region. PFPT can be used to address conditions that occur when the muscles of the pelvic floor are weak, tight, or there is an impairment of the sacroiliac joint, lower back, coccyx and/or hip joint. The tissues surrounding the pelvic organs may more or less sensitive and/or be irritated resulting in pelvic pain. While PFPT is most commonly considered to address issues of urinary and bowel problems, it can also be used effectively for a number of sexual dysfunctions including vaginismus, vulvodynia and vestibulodynia.
