Short answer: NO!
"Do your kegels" is a phrase many of us have heard, especially if we've had children or are aging. A kegel is the voluntary contraction of the muscles of the pelvic floor. These muscles control the bladder and the bowels as well as aid in sexual function. They are an important part of the core system to help us manage pressure appropriately.
But kegels aren't everything! If you come to pelvic floor physical therapy with any symptoms or issues with your bladder, bowels, or sexual function, your root cause likely comes from several places. And the pelvic floor is just one of those places!
At Flourish, you receive a comprehensive review of your medical and current history. Then you participate in a head-to-toe physical examination to determine all of the big things and little things that are contributing to your problems and complaints. At the end of your session, we review our findings with you and make recommendations for your personalized treatment plan. Everything we do at Flourish keeps your goals at the forefront!
If you are interested in more information or want to learn how Flourish might benefit you, schedule a free 30-minute consultation with us!
P.S. If kegels truly worked, I would need another job! :)
