How can you know if you are receiving the best physical therapy for your pelvic floor dysfunction?
Here are a few clues that may help:
- Not every patient will benefit from pelvic floor muscle strengthening exercises (“kegels”). In fact, for some conditions, symptoms may worsen if kegels are performed. If pelvic floor exercises are being recommended, ask why. Exercise prescription always should be based upon patient history, current symptoms, and a thorough examination to determine appropriateness of the exercise.
