Physical Therapy in Bensalem

If you’re dealing with pelvic pain or dysfunction, you don’t have to suffer silently or try to “grin and bear it”. At the BeWhole Pelvic Physical Therapy clinic in Bensalem, our skilled pelvic health physical therapists can help you reclaim comfort, mobility, and quality of life.

A Proven, Non-Invasive Approach to Pelvic Health

Pelvic floor physical therapy is a safe, personalized form of rehab that addresses dysfunction and pain in the pelvic floor muscles and connective tissues. Through precise manual therapy techniques and customized exercise programs, we identify and treat the underlying causes of:

  • Pelvic pain
  • Incontinence
  • Issues with sexual, bowel, or bladder function
  • Painful intercourse (dyspareunia)
  • Painful urination (dysuria)
  • Constipation or straining
  • Pelvic organ prolapse
  • And more

Rather than masking symptoms with medication, our holistic pelvic floor physical therapy solutions aim to restore strength, mobility, nerve function, and proper muscle coordination in the pelvic region.

Pelvic floor physical therapy is suitable for both women and men experiencing pelvic dysfunction. Our services can benefit:

The Benefits of Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy in Bensalem

Through manual therapy techniques and customized exercises, pelvic floor physical therapy provides multifaceted benefits including:

1. Targeted Pain Relief
Pelvic pain frequently stems from dysfunctional nerves/muscles in the pelvic floor region. By identifying and releasing trigger points in tight musculature and connective tissues, we can significantly reduce discomfort. You’ll regain comfort during activities that previously caused pain.

2. Improved Range of Motion
Restricted mobility in pelvic muscles/tissues puts strain on the bladder, reproductive organs, and more – causing pain and dysfunction. Our manual therapy techniques improve flexibility and mobility by gently releasing shortened, irritated tissues.

3. Increased Sexual Function
Through pelvic floor relaxation/coordination techniques, we can minimize pain and enhance comfort during intercourse. Improved nerve functioning and blood flow also supports sexual response and satisfaction for both partners.

4. Reduced Risk of Chronic Pelvic Pain
When acute pain signals remain active over time, nerves can become overly sensitized – resulting in hard-to-treat chronic pelvic pain. By identifying and quieting these irritated nerve pathways early, pelvic floor physical therapist can prevent lasting, severe discomfort.

5. Restored Bowel and Bladder Function
Dysfunctional pelvic floor muscles contribute to urine leakage, constipation, and other bowel/bladder problems. Our rehab regimens strengthen weak areas, relax overactive tissues, and restore coordination – improving continence and healthy elimination patterns.

BeWhole Pelvic therapy was my first experience learning about the pelvis and its function and how as we get older it needs exercise!! Kavitha’s knowledge and experience were so helpful in this season of my life. Her gentle approach is comforting and not overwhelming. She gives practical instruction and insight of which I am so grateful! If you need help in this area I highly recommend her!!

I was skeptical when I first sought treatment by Dr. Kavitha because I was not familiar with pelvic floor issues. She was recommended by another doctor after I experienced lower back pain that was not traceable to structural issues with my back. After 10 sessions of therapy, my symptoms have gone away and I feel much better and have increased flexibility. I highly recommend Dr. Kavitha.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy Hurt?

Some discomfort may occur when releasing especially tight muscles and connective tissues. But patients typically describe pelvic floor physical therapy as far more comfortable than living with constant pelvic pain and dysfunction. Your comfort guides our work – we only apply as much pressure as tolerable to elicit productive change without causing harm. Ongoing feedback ensures your treatment plan remains helpful rather than painful.

What Happens During a Typical Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy Session?

Sessions involve both external and internal soft tissue manipulation. Externally, your therapist palpates muscles and connective tissues to detect areas of tightness contributing to dysfunction. Internally, we gently release spasmed muscles, restricted fascia, and trigger points by applying targeted pressure with gloved fingers. These techniques calm irritated nerves, improve mobility, and relieve myofascial tension. We also guide you through relaxation practices and therapeutic exercises to coordinate muscle contraction/relaxation. Most initial evals last 60 minutes; follow-ups are 30 minutes.

What If I Feel Too Much Pain During a Session?

Open communication ensures your comfort remains the priority. We expect some mild, temporary discomfort when addressing dysfunctional areas. But please speak up if anything we attempt causes pain exceeding your threshold. Either the technique or location can be adjusted to minimize discomfort while still targeting the root causes of dysfunction. We only proceed as deeply as tolerable to create gradual, lasting change without harm.
