What is urogynecological physical therapy?

Urogynecological physical therapy is a specialty of physical therapy that focuses on evaluation, prevention, and treatment of various dysfunctions that can occur at the abdominopelvic level in both men and women.

How can pelvic floor therapy help you?

The function of the pelvic floor is to support the organs housed in the pelvic area, including the reproductive, urinary, and digestive organs. A dysfunction of the pelvic floor can lead to problems with these organs that are treatable with this type of physical therapy. The most common pelvic floor dysfunctions are described here:

  • Urinary incontinence, stress or urgency, post-voiding drip, feeling of incomplete emptying, etc.
  • Anorectal dysfunctions such as fecal incontinence, gas and constipation.
  • During pregnancy: pain relief and prescription of preparatory exercises for childbirth.
  • After childbirth: postpartum exercises for recovery of the abdominal muscles and pelvic floor, as well as the treatment of diastasis of the rectum, treatment of perineal or cesarean section scars.
  • Prolapsed pelvic organs: cystocele (prolapsed bladder), urethrocele (prolapsed urethra), hysterocele (prolapsed or herniated uterus), enterocele (small bowel prolapse) and rectocele (posterior vaginal prolapse).
  • Sexual dysfunctions: pain and other issues relating to sexual function.
  • Chronic pelvic pain.
  • Postoperative treatment for pelvic surgery (hysterectomy, prostatectomy, etc.) as well as oncological processes related to the pelvis.

How we treat abdominopelvic dysfunctions

On your first visit, one of our physiotherapists specialized in pelvic floor rehabilitation will evaluate your condition, taking your medical history and examining your posture and an external and internal examination of all the structures related to the pelvic floor.

A totally personalized therapy plan will be designed according to your diagnosis, adapted to your needs and aimed at improving your quality of life. The type of treatment recommended may include several of the following:

  • Manual therapy of the pelvic floor and its adjacent structures.
  • Reprogramming and activation of the abdominal muscles and lower back muscles so that they correctly manage the pressures in the abdomino-lumbo-pelvic cavity.
  • Therapeutic exercises for the abomino-perineal region, such as abdominal hypopressive gymnastics (AHG), the Guillarme method (ABDO-Mg®) or therapeutic pilates
  • Proprioception exercises with a eutony trunk
  • Kegel exercises
  • Intracavitary electrostimulation
  • Biofeedback.
  • Behavioral guidelines and modification of habits to improve functions such as urination or defecation.
