pelvic floor Rehabilitation

Pelvic rehabilitation is a specialized field of physical therapy that focuses on issues surrounding the bladder, bowels, prostate, pregnancy, and pelvic pain. The bladder and bowels are controlled by different structures in the pelvis, including muscles. Other structures in the pelvis, such as the bones and ligaments can create pain in the pelvis, groin, or back as well. Specific examples you might seek pelvic floor physical therapy for include:

  • Leaking of urine
  • Leaking of stool
  • Constipation
  • Postpartum education to protect your healing body
  • Postpartum complications
  • Pain during pregnancy
  • Difficulty initiating urine flow
  • Tailbone pain
  • Numbness, tingling, or pain in the groin or genitals
  • Pain during pelvic exams or sexual intercourse
  • Bloating and abdominal pain
  • Post-surgery (prostate, bladder, abdominal, etc…)

Physical therapy will help to identify specific causes for your concerns and develop an individualized program to address these concerns.

TMJ Treatment

Your temporomandibular joint is a hinge that connects your jaw to the temporal bones of your skull, which are in front of each ear. It lets you move your jaw up and down and side to side, so you can talk, chew, and yawn. Problems with your jaw and the muscles in your face that control it are known as temporomandibular disorders (TMD). But you may hear it wrongly called TMJ, after the joint.

"I highly recommend Teri Carr, PT. She is an extraordinary physical therapist and care giver. Her years of experience and constant continued learning make her an absolute expert. She is such a caring person and very effective. She works with her patients to find a plan that will work for them. She focuses on pelvic floor issues – including nerves in the pelvis. She is the only expert listed for the state of Maine for pudendal neuralgia. I am so lucky to have her as my therapist.

The staff here is also excellent. Everyone is upbeat and helpful, from the owner (Doug) to the support staff (Katie). I’ll never go anywhere else for physical therapy! "

The Pelvic Floor therapy for my abdominal pain has increased my quality of life twofold and when I had back issues last year Teri helped me with pre and post surgery pain and recovery. The atmosphere there is a place of healing and the people are all very friendly and I consider them as friends. I would recommend them to everyone and come to think of it I have. "
