Stop UTIs from Impeding PT Progress
Dear Stephanie and Liz,
I have PFD and am currently in physical therapy. Unfortunately I’m also a person who is prone to getting one or two UTIs a year. It’s frustrating because every time I think I have this PFD licked, a UTI comes along causes my muscles to spasm and tighten and ruins my progress. My question is: Can the pelvic floor be rehabbed enough to at some point withstand the destructive power of a UTI?
Dear UTI Prone,
The short answer to your question is yes, the pelvic floor can be rehabilitated to a point where events like a UTI will not exacerbate the pain cycle. However, your question brings up an important point about what you can do to ensure that a UTI does not wreak havoc on your already impaired pelvic floor.
