pelvic floor Rehabilitation

Pelvic rehabilitation is a specialized field of physical therapy focusing 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, like 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 urine
  • Leaking 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 genital area
  • Pain during pelvic exams or sexual intercourse
  • Bloating and abdominal pain
  • Post-surgery (prostate, bladder, abdominal, etc.)

Physical therapy helps 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 caregiver. Her years of experience and constant continued learning make her an absolute expert. She is such an effective, caring person. She works with 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'm 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! "

"Teri Carr and the crew at Pouzol's Physical Therapy have been extremely helpful with dealing with my health issues. The Pelvic Floor therapy for my abdominal pain has increased my quality of life twofold. 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. The people are all friendly, and I consider them friends. I would recommend them to everyone, and come to think of it, I have. "
