Women’s health is a specialty in healthcare that includes treatments specific to the female body. Although women’s health can be treated in all fields, it is not commonly known that physical therapy can be an integral part of a woman’s health care team. Our goal is to provide the highest quality of therapy in order to respond to women’s needs throughout their life cycle.
Physical therapists with experience in Women’s Health provide the latest evidence-based physical therapy services to everyone from young athletes and childbearing women to peri-menopausal mothers. The goal is to use minimally invasive techniques and exercises to improve quality of life for women through a range of improvements from increased continence to decreased pain. Our ultimate goal is to give you control over your body, reduce the use of medications and prevent the possible need for surgery.
Our Women’s Health Centers of Excellence focus specifically on disorders in the female body system to include disorders such as urinary incontinence, pelvic pain, and postpartum pain. A specially trained Women’s Health Physical Therapist is the ideal provider to help you gain control over your symptoms because many symptoms of urinary incontinence are caused by pelvic floor muscle weakness and dysfunction, both easily treatable with physical therapy.
Physical therapists are additionally trained to evaluate and treat joint dysfunction, muscle tightness, weakness or imbalance in muscle groups, and nerve entrapment- all potential signs of pelvic pain. Physical therapists trained specifically in the area of pelvic health can identify the possible generators of pelvic pain and develop a treatment plan specific to the patient.
