This unique type of physical therapy can aid both men and women in problems such as fecal and  urinary incontinence, constipation, pelvic pain, complications with pregnancy, and many others.

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.”
