Physical Therapy

What Is Physical Therapy?

Physical therapy in the form of Kegel and other lower body exercises is an effective way of treating pelvic floor prolapse. When this condition occurs, it can cause a considerable amount of pain and discomfort. Therefore preventative guidance from a medical professional can go a long way in addressing prolapse ahead of time. At Helio Health & Wellness, we have the expertise necessary to treat pelvic prolapse from a natural, therapeutic approach.


What Does Physical Therapy Involve?

A common cause of pelvic prolapse is weak muscles due to weight gain, certain cancers, and pregnancy. When occurences like these compromise our pelvic floor muscles, they can no longer sustain the pressure put on our abdomens. As a result, you may experience the descending or “dropping” of the internal organs. Physical therapy to address this problem primarily involves kegel, squat, bridge, and similar exercises. By performing these exercises consistently, you can consequently prevent pelvic prolapse from occurring.
