About the Pelvic Floor


The pelvic floor is made up of the muscles within the pelvis that support your core. They control the flow of urine and bowel movements, and they are important for intimacy as well. Because they support the core muscles that serve as the starting point for all movement, pelvic floor rehabilitation can help relieve pain, restore function and enable physical improvements.

Better Outcomes for Patients


Our team of physicians and physical therapists have specialized training in pelvic floor muscle disorders. Shirley Ryan AbilityLab’s pelvic health program is unique for key reasons, including:

  • It is led by a physiatrist who is not only a physician specialist in physical medicine and rehabilitation (PM&R), but specifically rehabilitation of pelvic floor dysfunction.
  • We treat everyone — men, women, transgender, gender-neutral or nonbinary individuals. We are the only rehabilitation research hospital that does.
  • Our services are fully integrated to reflect the whole patient’s health. Patients with pelvic health concerns also have access to our multidisciplinary chronic pain program services.
  • Our team specializes in treating pelvic health concerns in patients with neurological impairment or dysfunction throughout our levels of care.
