So often in our health care practice we are asked about the benefits our treatment strategies: “Prove to me this works” or “How do I know this helps when I can’t see the problem”?. “How come I never heard of this kind of treatment before?” It is often not until the patient successfully completes care with us that they realize the full benefits of what they have learned through the course of treatment. Education, empowerment, exercise, pain management strategies and behavioral modification all play a role in successful treatment outcomes for pelvic floor muscle dysfunction.
Once in a while news-worthy journalists are able to capture the essence of our treatment approach and how we manage to make each patient treatment session successful. Prevention magazine has hit the nail on the head so to speak this month with an article entitled “The Pain Down There” (April issue). This article is able to accomplish educating the public with a wealth of information in a short span of space. It covers the pain, the muscle dysfunction, the embarrassment and the lack of functional control so many people (women and men) feel when these ‘hidden’ muscles don’t cooperate with our biological needs. This article describes what we do at Phoenix Physical Therapy.
