Pelvic Health Physical Therapy
Pelvic floor has a layer of muscles that support our organs such as the bladder, uterus and bowel. Through child birth or simply part of aging, the supported tissue can weaken and can cause several conditions such as organ prolapse, urinary or fecal incontinence. These muscles can also become tense and painful resulting in pelvic pain, sexual pain, constipation and discomfort sitting.
Our team of pelvic floor therapy specialists will work with you to provide the proper treatment. Through evaluation and tailored exercise, our patients will get an all integrated therapy to bring back their quality of life.
Prenatal and Postpartum Physical Therapy
Pregnancy and delivery are challenging feats that women experience, in fact, 40% of women complain of aches and pains during pregnancy.
After delivery, women often experience post-pregnancy belly, back pain, painful and tight scars, weakness/pain in the pelvic floor. Left unattended, these may lead to problems with organ prolapse, urinary or fecal leakage or sexual pain; if not soon after delivery, then several months later.
We provide individualized prenatal and postpartum physical therapy for women during and after pregnancy to help manage pain, regain muscle tone, and minimize pelvic floor issues.
