Endometriosis Treatment

Pelvic floor therapy is an essential part of managing endometriosis symptoms. Here at Garner Pelvic Health, we treat endometriosis with our pelvic floor therapy services.

What is Endometriosis

Endometriosis is a condition where tissue similar to the lining of the uterus grows outside the uterus, causing pain and other symptoms. Pelvic floor therapy focuses on addressing musculoskeletal issues surrounding the pelvis and improving the function of the pelvic floor muscles.

Here’s how it can help manage endometriosis:

Pelvic Floor Muscle Dysfunction

Endometriosis pain can lead to muscle tension and dysfunction in the pelvic floor. Pelvic physical therapists can assess and treat these muscle imbalances, helping to reduce pain and improve pelvic function.

Pain Management 

Pelvic physical therapy includes techniques to manage and reduce pelvic pain. This may involve manual therapies, stretches, and exercises aimed at relieving discomfort associated with endometriosis.

Improved Pelvic Function

Endometriosis can affect pelvic mobility and function. Physical therapists work on improving pelvic joint mobility and stability, which can contribute to better overall pelvic health.

Education and Self-Care 

Physical therapists experienced in pelvic floor therapy can educate individuals with endometriosis about their condition and provide strategies for self-care. This may include advice on posture, movement patterns, and exercises to alleviate symptoms.

Biofeedback

Some pelvic health physical therapists use biofeedback techniques to help individuals become more aware of and control their pelvic floor muscles. This can be beneficial in managing pain and improving muscle function.

Tailored Exercise Programs

Our physical therapists create individualized exercise programs to address specific needs and concerns related to endometriosis. These exercises may focus on strengthening, stretching, and improving pelvic health.

We Use The Functional, Integrative, and Lifestyle Medicine Approach

Our therapists seek to find and treat the root cause of dysfunction and pain. We assess all contributing factors, including gut health and the microbiome, hormone management, and inflammation. Once the root cause is identified, we use our backgrounds in Integrative and Lifestyle Medicine, as well as pelvic physical therapy, manual therapy, dry needling, and rehab ultrasound imaging to help you effectively manage endo. 

It’s important to note that pelvic physical therapy is just one aspect of a comprehensive approach to managing endometriosis. It works in conjunction with medical treatments, chiefly endometriosis excision, as the gold standard for removing endo and other interventions prescribed by healthcare professionals.
