About This Service
Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy services are offered through Women’s Health, a clinical partnership between Ascension Seton and UT Health Austin.
Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy services are available to evaluate and treat symptoms of pelvic floor dysfunction for patients (13 years and older). Symptoms of pelvic floor dysfunction include urinary or fecal incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, sexual dysfunction, postpartum recovery, vulvodynia, interstitial cystitis, and pelvic pain. We work with you to determine the cause of your symptoms and develop a treatment approach that will help you reach your unique goals.
The Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy care team is comprised of nationally recognized pelvic floor physical therapists. We use the latest technology to deliver specialized procedures and offer personalized treatment options with a focus on increasing your overall quality of life.
We also offer the full scope of Women’s Health services throughout Austin and the surrounding areas. Please visit here to learn more about our services and clinic locations.
Your pelvic floor is composed of a group of muscles in the pelvis that play a critical role in controlling your bladder and acting as supportive muscles that connect to your lower back and abdominal muscles. Weakened or uncoordinated pelvic floor muscles fail to provide enough support for the bladder and can cause pelvic organ prolapse (bulging of the vagina), urinary incontinence (issues with bladder control), and fecal incontinence (issues with bowel control).
Patients are cared for by a dedicated multidisciplinary care team, meaning you will benefit from the expertise of multiple specialists across a variety of disciplines. Our board-certified pelvic floor physical therapists have extensive experience treating pelvic floor disorders and work alongside a team of women’s health experts, including obstetrician-gynecologists, nurses, advanced practice providers, dietitians, social workers, and more, providing unparalleled care for patients every step of the way.
We also collaborate with our colleagues at The University of Texas at Austin and the Dell Medical School to utilize the latest research, diagnostic, and treatment techniques, allowing us to provide you with comprehensive, coordinated care designed to strengthen and improve coordination in muscles in your pelvic floor.
