If you are dealing with incontinence or other issues related to the pelvic floor, a good physical therapist can be a vital part of your recovery. Learning to find and isolate your pelvic floor is challenging, and working with a physical therapist trained in pelvic floor health can help to ensure that the time and effort you spend on pelvic floor exercise actually leads to results. If you’re doing Kegels wrong, you are wasting your time. Work with a trained physical therapist to make sure your time and effort are worth your while!
