Pelvic Health

  • Pelvic Pain - Various women experience pain in the lower abdominal or pelvic regions during the course of their lives for many reasons. Physical therapy can be helpful with problems stemming from the muscles, nerves and supporting structures.
  • Urinary Incontinence - Urinary incontinence is not considered a normal consequence of aging and it is not something a person must accept. Physical therapy programs including exercises for strengthening the pelvic floor muscles and education regarding bladder retraining can be used alone or in conjunction with medications and surgery to treat incontinence. Biofeedback and electric stimulation may also be used to help retrain the pelvic floor muscles.
  • Osteoporosis - A physical therapist can design an exercise program with an emphasis on weight-bearing, resistive exercises and correct posture/body mechanics. This will improve muscle strength, bone density and help patients perform daily activities safely.
  • Pre/Post Pregnancy Management - Many physical changes occur during and after pregnancy that put a woman at greater risk for injury during exercise and daily activities which can lead to back and pelvic pain. A physical therapist specializing in managing these factors can be very helpful in demonstrating body mechanics and exercises to prevent and/or manage pain.
