Get Pelvic Floor Symptom Relief Naturally
Are you suffering from pain, discomfort, or inconvenience when it comes to your pelvic floor region? You are not alone. We treat both women and men and help you get your life back to normal so you can stop worrying about the troublesome symptoms of pelvic floor weakness. At Pin Point Physical Therapy in Charlotte, NC, we use a variety of strategies that physical therapy provides to help tighten and strengthen the pelvic floor muscle. Physical therapy aims to improve the strength and effectiveness of the pelvic floor muscles and decrease the signs of pain, weakness, and discomfort.
Who Needs Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy?
Women and men with muscle weakness of the pelvic floor can perform exercises to strengthen the muscles and improve the control of the bowels and bladder. Additionally, your doctor might recommend physical therapy following an examination if they find that a neuromuscular issue causes your pelvic floor problems. There are numerous causes, from birthing to illness, age, surgery, or a physical accident. Issues may also stem from other genitourinary problems, like urinary or fecal incontinence and constipation.
Do Men Have Pelvic Floor Muscles?
Men also have pelvic floor muscles and can benefit from physical therapy targeting this area, just like women. If you have any of the troubling symptoms listed above, or other related symptoms, reach out to Pin Point PT today.
Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy can help with these symptoms:
- Frequent bladder and stool movements
- Incontinence in the urinary tract
- Painful urination
- Pain in the genital region
- Painful sex
When Should You Try Pelvic Floor Therapy?
Pelvic floor therapy targets your pelvic floor muscles, ligaments, and connective tissues. It supports the pelvic organs, aids in sexual arousal, orgasms, and assists in controlling the bladder and bowels. You will be able to maintain pelvic stability better. You should find a return to normal pelvic organ functioning, including sexual activity and voiding functions, breathing, and posture.
What to Expect From Pelvic Floor Treatment
A comprehensive examination focuses on the hips, spinal lumbar, gait, and posture. The test usually involves the assessment of both internal and external muscles. Patients may need to stand, walk, and sit down for the therapist to find the posture or joint problems that affect the pelvic and hip muscles.
The assessment aids in determining whether the patient requires this type of therapy. It also helps in establishing an appropriate treatment plan. Your recommended therapy reflects the symptoms you encounter. For instance, you might need relaxation or stretching exercises for your muscles to relieve specific symptoms. However, in certain circumstances, working out to build muscles is suggested.
For example, a final treatment plan might include the following:

My PCP referred me to traditional physical therapy for a very painful, shoulder with quite limited mobility. After some 7-8 weeks my mobility returned but the pain remained and my PT suggested dry needling. I had never heard of it but was having so much pain, I researched it and decided to give it a try. In walks Ginger Morrisey. Not only is she knowledgeable and professional, she really listens. This is a rarity and one I much appreciated. My situation was not a quick fix. It had gone on for awhile before I sought help. But with each session came more and more relief. My goals were her goals. There was no question about my treatment that was out of bounds. It felt as though we were working together as a team in addressing my particular issues. Ginger is attentive to your level of comfort during the procedure. She is constantly evaluating and reevaluating your issues. I found her responsive to my communications both during and after hours. I, of course, tried to remain respectful of her time, but she was available to my communications. I spent over 30 years in the healthcare field and Ginger is one of those rare instances when a skilled, medical caregiver is matched by a compassionate therapist with an awesome bedside manner. And, by the way, the dry needling treatment DOES produce positive results...especially in Ginger’s hands! Thank you so much!
I felt 100% better after my first visit with Ginger. Pain that I had been “pushing through” was completely gone after 3 visits and I’m back to walking and moving in comfort. I really appreciate Ginger’s common sense approach to treatment and home exercises. Now I can’t wait to use my YMCA membership!
