Pelvic Health

You may need Pelvic Floor Therapy
and don’t know it.

Are you experiencing incontinence or leaking? Painful urination? Painful intercourse? Lower back and hip pain?
Do you have difficulty transitioning from lying down to sitting up? Are you pregnant or have just given birth?

You may be experiencing a weakening or excessive tightness of your pelvic floor. Elizabeth Rogers Pilates & Physical Therapy, PLLC offers a Pelvic Health Program to help you rehabilitate your pelvic floor.


How do I know that I have pelvic floor dysfunction?
Many people suffer from pelvic dysfunction and are not aware of it. Symptoms include:

  • Urinary urgency
  • Urinary incontinence or leaking
  • Fecal incontinence or leaking
  • Constipation
  • Difficulty transitioning from lying down to sitting up
  • Feeling of fullness in your pelvic area
  • Feeling of weakness or tightness in your lower back, hips, groin, sides of the legs
  • Painful intercourse
  • C-section scarring

What can cause pelvic dysfunction?
The pelvic floor is a group of muscles that holds the pelvic organs (the vagina, bladder, rectum or uterus, in a woman). When these muscles become weak or too tight, they can cause low back, hip or pelvic pain and/or incontinence. Pregnancy, childbirth, c-section, poor posture, advanced age, high impact sports (running), cancer treatments, pelvic or urogenital surgery are all risk factors for pelvic dysfunction.


What can be done?
We take a non-surgical approach for strengthening and releasing the pelvic floor and restoring proper movement with manual therapy, modalities, patient education and therapeutic exercises.


What can I expect?
First we will perform an examination and test specific muscles to assess strength deficits, coordination concerns, tight muscles, tender points and myofascial restrictions. We will develop a treatment plan for you that includes independent, take-home exercises that will empower you to prevent further impairments down the road.

Covid-19 Notice

04/06/2021 Covid-19 Notice:

For the past year we have safely operated under our Covid-19 Exposure Control, Mitigation and Recovery Plan. This has allowed us to continue caring for our community and helping our clients return to the activities they love! Our entire team of PTs has been fully vaccinated since mid February. We are available for both in-clinic and virtual physical therapy visits and Pilates sessions. This allows us to comply with government guidance, while also meeting our obligation as essential infrastructure workers. For in-clinic treatment/Pilates sessions, all clients are screened prior to entering the clinic. The PT will wear a mask and the client needs to wear a mask of their own. Social distancing is observed throughout the clinic and rigorous cleaning guidelines are followed. At times during your PT treatment, it may not be possible for your PT to observe social distancing, such as during certain manual therapy techniques. The need for in-clinic treatment vs. virtual or telehealth treatment will be a joint determination between you and your PT. You may review our Covid-19 Exposure Control, Mitigation and Recovery Plan for the details of how we provide safe, in-person care.

If you are traveling via plane and you are not yet fully vaccinated, we ask that you inform your PT so that we may switch your visits to telehealth for 10 days after your return. (Fully vaccinated is defined as 2 weeks past your final vaccination dose.) Thank you for understanding that this policy is in place to allow us to meet our responsibility to all clients, which is to do no harm.

We remain passionate about helping you improve and maintain the function of your movement system so that you can do the activities you love. We invite you to follow/Like our Facebook page, where there is a year's worth of recorded Pilates mat classes that you may access. 

Please contact me directly with any questions or concerns. I am available via clinic phone (206-535-7356) and email ( We will update you here and our Facebook page as things change.

Thank you for your support of this small, locally-owned physical therapy private practice!
