Pelvic Floor Therapy
Our most recent expansion includes women's health focused on pelvic pain, pelvic organ prolapse, stress urge and urinary incontinence. Allyson Vogt, PT, is partnering with local urologists and gynecologists to offer services for your needs. Following your initial evaluation, a specialized noninvasive treatment plan will be put together to address the symptoms you are experiencing.

Pelvic floor rehab treats symptoms caused by and related to:
- Abdominal or pelvic surgery
- Chronic coughing
- Other neurological disorders
- Lower back pain
- Sacroiliac joint pain
- Muscle imbalance/weakness
- Pelvic injuries (i.e. from a car accident)
- Hereditary factors
About Pelvic Floor Dysfunction
Bladder incontinence and pelvic pain are common problems many women suffer from but may be embarrassed to share with their medical provider or are unaware of treatment options that can fix the issues. Although these symptoms are common, they are not normal and can be treated conservatively with pelvic floor physical therapy. Your pelvic floor muscles—located at the base of your pelvis—as well as your diaphragm, abdominal and hip muscles can be assessed for specific problems which can be addressed with a noninvasive, customized treatment plan at Jackson Purchase Physical Therapy.
Whether you are pregnant, post-partum or post-menopausal, you may benefit from this treatment. Allyson Vogt can answer any questions you might have and may be able to assist you with exercise, diet and lifestyle changes to solve small or large bladder leakage or pelvic pain concerns.
Symptoms of pelvic floor dysfunction can include:
- Frequently needing to use the bathroom
- Constipation, or a straining pain during your bowel movements
- Straining or pushing really hard to pass a bowel movement
- Leaking stool or urine (incontinence)
- Painful urination
- Feeling pain in your lower back with no other cause
- Feeling ongoing pain in your pelvic region, genitals or rectum — with or without a bowel movement
Our pelvic floor therapy requires a referral from a provider. For more information or to schedule an appointment with Allyson Vogt, call Jackson Purchase Physical Therapy at 270.251.4121.
