Women’s Pelvic Floor Dysfunction Therapy offered at Garnsey Outpatient Rehabilitation Center at Geneva General Hospital
Garnsey Outpatient Rehabilitation Center at Geneva General Hospital is now offering Pelvic Floor Dysfunction Therapy.

Liz Crocitto, DPT, received her doctor of physical therapy degree from Rutgers University in New Jersey and is specialty trained in pelvic health and dysfunction. Her training allows her to provide physical therapy for patients who have symptoms of urinary incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, and diastasis rectus abdominis.

The muscles that sit in the bottom of a person’s pelvis are called pelvic floor muscles. These muscles help support internal organs. Pelvic floor muscles are small, but they impact posture, breathing, urination, and many other functions. Pelvic floor muscles get weak like any other muscle.

“Many women live with the symptoms of pelvic floor dysfunction when there is a treatment. Symptoms such as urinary incontinence can impact individuals function, limit their activities and decrease their social interactions. Just like any muscle in the body, we can strengthen the pelvic floor muscles and improve symptoms. We are committed to our community and delivering these specialty services to improve our patients' quality of life” states Maureen Loyal, Director of Rehabilitation Services.

The following are common but treatable conditions that may be due to weak pelvic floor muscles:

• Urinary incontinence: can be caused by childbirth or surgery. There are two types:
 Urge incontinence: leakage that happens when you are trying to race to the bathroom and cannot make it.
 Stress incontinence: leakage that occurs when coughing, sneezing, laughing and jumping.
• Pelvic Organ Prolapse: can be due to childbirth, surgery and chronic constipation.
 Symptoms of Pelvic Organ Prolapse include painful to sit, bleeding, low back pain, urinary hesitancy and incomplete emptying of urine.
• Postpartum Back Pain and Diastasis Rectus Abdominis: can be deficits in strength and altered posture from pregnancy and delivery
 Symptoms include pain when lifting and bending.
