Pelvic Health Physical Therapy for Women

Women of all ages experience changes in their pelvic floor muscle function that can directly impact both the strength of the core and overall pelvic health (bladder, vaginal and bowel systems). The pelvic floor muscles are a direct component of the bodies core strength. When the pelvic muscles are weakened women may experience low back pain, abdominal pain, pelvic pain, and weakness with movement. We provide targeted physical therapy to increase the strength of your core and pelvic girdle, which will ultimately help you get back to moving comfortably.

The most common pelvic health concern women have is bladder leakage. All women can develop bladder control problems, even professional athletes. By improving the strength and control of the pelvic floor muscles and the inner core we can eliminate leakage and get you back to moving with confidence.

Discomfort with sexual intimacy is another common concern and can be a difficult topic for many people to talk about. Finding the right provider and a positive support system is one of the most important steps in the healing process. We help women overcome sexual discomfort by providing expert care designed to address your specific concerns. Commonly, women have tightness in the pelvic muscles, as well as other physical changes leading to discomfort with intimacy, that can likely be treated with manual therapy and exercise. Working together we will improve your pelvic health and return you to comfortable sexual function.
