Pelvic Health

Pelvic Health is an all-encompassing term regarding conditions or disorders of the pelvic floor. The pelvic floor is the layer of musculature at the base of the pelvis which helps maintain urinary/fecal continence and assists in sexual function.

Both men and women have a pelvic floor that needs to be able to contract and relax throughout the day in order to maintain continence and perform normal toileting tasks. If the pelvic floor is too tight or too loose then there can be issues with maintaining continence, increased pain, or different structures ending up in places where they normally would not be.

The purpose of pelvic floor physical therapy is to improve the control of our pelvic floor muscles while also incorporating the rest of the body to promote healthy behaviors and movements.

“I had prostate surgery in February 2021, severe leakage followed. I got a prescription for PT. I chose Mallers & Swoverland because Nathan (Wrzesinski) was recommended to me as a specialist for this condition. Nate was knowledgeable and compassionate to work with. We worked together until the end of 2021. Success was 90%. I will continue to do the at home exercises hoping to achieve the last 10%. I would recommend Mallers and Swoverland and Nate to my friends”Previous Pelvic Health Patient

“In 2021 I was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer and it was recommended that I begin a regimen of physical therapy. My family had a previous working relationship with Mallers and Swoverland and contacted their office to discuss the Physical Therapy program for Prostate Cancer. From the first call with Nathan Wrzesinki and throughout the entire program, I felt cared for, connected, and impressed with the professionalism offered by Nathan.

The Surgery was a success and all of the exercises which Nathan instructed me in have been used and have been successful in my recovery. I highly recommend Nathan to partner with you as you walk through this journey of prostate cancer and the exercises for pre and post surgery”A Pelvic Health Patient
