Rectocele is when the wall between the rectum and vagina weakens causing the vaginal wall to bulge. The primary cause of a rectocele is weakness of the pelvic floor. This can create poor bowel expulsion or discomfort in the pelvis. A physical therapist will assess the pelvic floor muscle strength and assist in retraining the muscles to help support the rectum. We will work with you on body mechanics and posture to relieve stress on your pelvis and ensure proper alignment.
Whether you want to avoid surgery or improve the outcome following surgery, we can help. To ensure your comfort and privacy, all Pelvic Floor treatments are held in our Private Treatment Rooms.
