From the first menstrual cycle to childbirth, midlife transitions and beyond, women are faced with evolving health-care needs.
Through our Women’s Health Rehabilitation services, we address these changes in ways that enhance your physical well-being.
Our physical therapy services can help women of all ages manage or resolve health challenges associated with:
• Pelvic pain
• Urinary incontinence
• Painful intercourse
• Prenatal and postnatal pain
Pelvic Floor Disorders
Pelvic floor disorders include problems that occur when pelvic muscles are too weak, too tight, or when there is an impairment in the lower back or hips. Sometimes these weaknesses are associated with landmark events in a woman’s life, such as childbirth, menopause or surgery. They can result in pelvic pain, urinary incontinence or painful intercourse. Physical therapy incorporates exercises and biofeedback to retrain and strengthen the muscles and your awareness.

Prenatal and Postnatal Pain
Physical therapy can help women who suffer from pregnancy induced conditions such as neck, back or pelvic pain, incontinence and abdominal weakness. Physical therapy provides education on proper body mechanics and therapeutic exercises to reduce pain and minimize discomforts during and after pregnancy. Manual techniques such as soft tissue massage, joint mobilization and stretching are also utilized to help resolve pain.
