Pelvic Physical Therapy


Pelvic Floor PT in Cary, NC is a specialty area of physical therapy that focuses on the pelvic floor.  The pelvic floor is composed of a group of muscles that support your abdominal contents and make up the base of your core. At times referred to as a “bowl” of muscles or a hammock supporting all the abdominal contents.  Sometimes these muscles become weak, and sometimes they carry too much tension. Anyone with pelvic pain, weakness (that may present as incontinence or pelvic pressure), or tension (pain with sex, urinary frequency, vaginismus, and even constipation) could benefit from a Pelvic Floor PT evaluation. 


Pelvic Floor Physical therapy focuses on the muscles of the pelvic floor and achieving optimal function within these muscles to eliminate symptoms.

I had an amazing experience with Alexis at Empower Pelvic Floor! She was incredibly knowledgeable and explained things in an easy to understand way. She gave me things I could do on my own between visits to improve my pelvic floor health, and made a traditionally uncomfortable subject to talk about, comfortable to talk about! She is full of personality and makes the visit engaging. Also she works with my wife and does a phenomenal job. I highly recommend Alexis at Empower Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy for all of your pelvic floor needs! Brandon Woolley
