The Endometriosis Foundation of Houston (EFHou) has partnered with Empower Yourself PT to provide pelvic floor physical therapy services to Houston area residents, who are 18 years old and older, no matter where they are with their endometriosis journey. This includes up to ten sessions of pelvic floor therapy. Payments will be made directly to the provider on behalf of the patient.
Endometriosis is a systemic disease impacting the whole body. The body reflexively reacts to pain by tensing muscles at or near the pain. Over time, this results in distress and dysfunction, locking muscles in a shortened, tight, and painful state. This, itself, becomes a pain generator layered on top of endometriosis pain.
Pelvic floor physical therapists can use techniques to ease muscle tension, retrain and correctly strengthen muscles, mobilize organs and scar tissue, release restrictions, improve alignment, and enhance blood flow. They can help retrain bladder, bowel, and sexual function. Over time, the changes brought about by PT can also help quiet an irritated central nervous system.
Here's where you can make a difference. We need help spreading awareness for our campaign and inviting your peers to help raise funds to support our efforts this year. We need to raise $2,000 on Giving Tuesday to reach our goal of providing at least one scholarship to a fellow Houstonian. We know that with your help, we can do it.
