Pelvic Health Physical Therapy

My name is Megan Pratt and I am so excited to be starting as a pelvic health physical therapist at Synergy Physical Therapy!

Pelvic physical therapy is a foreign concept to most people, but it is a
robustly growing specialty within the medical community. I work with both men and women who experience any sort of musculoskeletal dysfunction within the pelvic or abdominal region; this includes but is not limited to

  • urinary problems like incontinence or over active bladder
  • bowel problems like chronic constipation or fecal incontinence
  • any sort of pelvic pain
  • dyspareunia or pain related to pre/postpartum women

These are just a few examples. I am so excited to start offering this service to patients down in Utah Valley, as it is my main passion and primary focus as a physical therapist! If you have been experiencing any of these issues or know someone that has, please send them my way at Synergy!

A pelvic health physical therapist sees patients with a range of orthopedic, urinary, bowel, and reproductive impairments/symptoms. This is not an all-inclusive list and many patients will have overlapping symptoms.

  • Pregnancy and Postpartum: low back pain, SI joint dysfunction, pubic symphysis
  • Dysfunction, sciatica, diastasis rectus abdominis, generalized core weakness/instability
  • Urinary Dysfunction: Incontinence (urinary leakage), over active bladder/incomplete emptying
  • Bowel Dysfunction: chronic constipation, fecal incontinence, rectal prolapse, painful defecation
  • Pelvic Pain: dyspareunia (painful intercourse), vaginismus, vulvodynia, coccydynia,
  • Levator ani syndrome, interstitial cystitis (painful bladder syndrome), endometriosis
  • Pre and Post Surgical Conditions: hysterectomy, cesarean section, episiotomy, sling
  • Procedure, prolapse repair, radiation (current and post oncology)
