A physical therapist is highly skilled in evaluating and treating various musculoskeletal and neurological conditions affecting the body. This profession focuses on assessing any underlying factors, such as strength, neuromuscular control, balance, coordination, skeletal alignment, and endurance, which may be contributing to impaired functional mobility, activity, participation, and quality of life.

Of course, most people only seek physical therapy when they’re suffering from a common injury or condition, such as whiplash, tendinitis, lower back pain, or ligament sprains. Perhaps lesser known is that chronic pelvic pain and dysfunction, especially issues with incontinence, can respond positively to physical therapy intervention.

Treating Bowel Incontinence

Visceral manipulation (hands on therapy for your organs), specialized core exercise training and exercises to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles, known as pelvic floor rehabilitation, can help people who are living in Fort MyersCape Coral physical therapy or Estero, FL with bowel incontinence.

Mild to moderate cases of common types of incontinence can be greatly improved or even cured by manual, behavioral or exercise therapy. We can also teach you habits and techniques to control your incontinence. Even periodic incontinence is not something you have to live with – we can help!

What Should I do if I'm Experiencing Bowel Incontinence?

Approximately 13 million Americans are incontinent. Oftentimes, the cause of incontinence is aging. The body’s muscles just don’t work as well as they used to. However, it is possible for anyone to experience incontinence for various reasons.

Fortunately, physical therapy treatment can improve specific organ and pelvic-floor muscle function. Incontinence is a common condition that may be caused by an underlying condition, but the most common reason it goes untreated is due to embarrassment.

For prevention of bowel incontinence, one of the most important things you can do is attend your yearly physicals and seek help. Attending yearly physicals or reaching out to a pelvic health physical therapist and being honest with your doctor/therapist, no matter how embarrassed you may feel, is the best way to treat or avoid this condition worsening. With a mobile physical therapist, you can work together to create a treatment plan that will correct this condition right in the comfort of your home. Many Fort Myers, Cape Coral & Estero, FL physical therapists will perform pelvic floor therapy to treat bowel incontinence and the results are resoundingly successful with most patients.

The Pelvic Floor Conditions We Treat

Groin Pain

Pain During Intercourse


Pain with Defecating

Did you know that your pelvic floor muscles can clench up? There are many reasons why this happens (such as injury, operations, lifting heavy objects, stress, scar tissue, a sedentary lifestyle, etc) but thankfully, a Fort Myers, Cape Coral & Estero, FL physical therapist can help determine exactly what is causing your pain and how you can prevent it in the future.

There are several different types of prostatectomies, and you may be experiencing a complication from yours if you’ve had one. Many men deal with urinary incontinence after a prostatectomy.

This condition results in inflammation and swelling, and occurs in the prostate gland. Prostatitis can be caused by a bacterial infection that can be cured through antibiotics. If you are diagnosed with chronic prostatitis, however, this is a long-term problem that will require more help than medication can offer.

Your pudendal nerve travels through your pelvic floor muscles. If those muscles are too tight, this nerve can become irritated. If this nerve is compressed for too long, you may begin experiencing painful symptoms.
