My 6 year old son worked with Marvin for 6 months for myofunctional therapy. We saw immediate and then long term improvement in my son's issues. Marvin was patient, kind and efffctively worked with at times a very boisterous 6 year old. He provided me as a parent with knowledge and resources needed to help my son and he listened patiently to all questions and concerns we had...

I highly recommend Bella Physical Therapy. At the age of 24 I unfortunately had to have a bilateral total joint replacement of my TMJ due to my Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis.

Marvin is an incredible physical therapist and has even taken the time to explain to me...

Are you in need of Pelvic Floor physical therapy in Bergen County, NJ? Bella Physical Therapy has been helping patients with Pelvic Floor Dysfunction for many years. We provide one-on-one at least one-hour sessions for each and every patient throughout the entire course of your pelvic floor physical therapy.
What is the Pelvic Floor?
The Pelvic Floor is a term used to describe the muscles, ligaments, and connective tissues that provide support for the internal organs, including the bowel, bladder and rectum. The Pelvic Floor is situated like a sling from the pubic bone in the front of the body to the coccyx (or tailbone) in the back of the body. This hammock-like structure helps to keep organs from falling out and helps to maintain continence - both fecal and urinary. The pelvic floor also helps achieve core stability and enhances sexual function.
Pelvic Floor Dysfunction is considered any pain or disruption of the function of the bladder, bowel and/or sexual function due to restrictions of the muscles, nerves, or connective tissues in the pelvis.
Orthopedic injuries can contribute to dysfunction of the pelvic floor. The spine, hips, and pelvis are all integral parts of core stability, and an Orthopedic injury to any part of the body (especially to the hips, spine, or pelvis) may cause the Pelvic Floor to overwork to compensate. This may lead to pelvic floor dysfunction.
In addition, since the brain controls nerve input to the muscles of the pelvic floor, any medical condition that impacts the health of nerves can also impact the Pelvic Floor Muscles. Diseases that impact nerves and could result in Pelvic Floor Muscle Dysfunction include: Diabetes, Parkinson’s Disease, Stroke, Back Injuries, Spinal Stenosis and Back Trauma.
