Women's Health Physical Therapy

What is Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy?

Diagnostic Ultrasound Rehabilitation

Pelvic floor training improves the efficiency of muscle contractions. This tool can be especially helpful for training the pelvic floor and/or deep core muscles as it provides direct feedback if you’re turning the muscles “on” or “off” appropriately.

Manual Therapy

Orthopedic injuries come during and after you have a baby. These can include hip pain, SI Joint Pain, Back Pain, Sciatica, and Abdominal Pain.  Our hands-on treatments can help relieve your pain and help you return to active lifestyle with your family!

Pelvic Floor Therapy

The pelvic floor conversation starts in pregnancy or postpartum, when we use those muscles heavily, because we experience discomfort and dysfunction. Pelvic floor therapy can help with most of the common conditions listed below, including incontinence, back pain, pain during intercourse, and more.

 

Pregnancy

Pregnancy can cause many changes in a woman’s body. These musculoskeletal changes can be uncomfortable and painful.

During pregnancy, you may experience hip pain, low back pain, instability of the sacroiliac joints and your pelvis, sciatica, rib pain, vulvar varicosities, postural changes, round ligament pain, pelvic floor dysfunction, coccyx pain, and pubic symphysis pain. Physical therapy can reduce your pain, prevent symptoms from becoming chronic, and keep you at your physical best during this wonderful time.

Many mothers-to-be want to exercise or continue to exercise during this period. As a mother of 2 and avid exerciser herself, Danielle knows first-hand what exercises are safe to do and what exercises are not safe to do.

Postpartum

In the postpartum months, your body again experiences changes.

Physical therapy after a normal or challenging delivery or pregnancy can prevent incontinence, prolapse, and/or sexual dysfunction.

Your baby is growing and stretching the pelvic floor muscles during pregnancy, and the pelvic floor has a possibility of tearing with delivery. 

These muscles should be treated like other muscle groups when injured. 

Let us help you get your body back to normal with our manual therapy, exercise prescription, advice and recommendations so you can continue to live an active lifestyle.
