The treatment of pelvic floor issues is a specialized field of physical therapy requiring highly advanced training and extended time for one-on-one attention
What makes us different?
Allied PT Pelvic Floor Specialists have specialized training and provide more extended time, one-on-one sessions as out-of-network insurance or self-pay providers. We provide three levels of treatment service, according to your individual needs. Our highest-level service includes personal, between-appointments access to your therapist.
What is Pelvic Floor?
The Pelvic Floor refers to the intricate muscles surrounding the pelvis. These muscles can suffer many of the same problems that other muscles of the body can suffer like being tight, weak, and being in spasm. Just like other muscles of the body, the muscles of the pelvic floor can be treated with physical therapy as well.
There is NO need to suffer!
We get it. Difficulty with incontinence, bowel and other pelvic disorders can be difficult to discuss. But there is really no need to suffer – because we know we can help. Please email me confidentially with your most difficult or urgent questions and I will respond personally to hopefully alleviate your fears and encourage you to take the first step in getting back to what you love!

“After my surgery Dr Langford (Urologist) felt I would benefit from pelvic floor PT. I live in Ft Myers, but her recommendation was Elizabeth Padron at the Cape Coral office. Needless to say the trip was worth it! I cannot say enough about Elizabeth. She listened closely and resolved many issues.”
