Rehabilitation Services/Women's Focused Physical Therapy
Our therapists focus on treating conditions that primarily tend to affect women, using wide-ranging clinical experience and extensive manual skills.
Musculoskeletal disorders, pelvic and low back pain, incontinence, post-mastectomy, osteoporosis, pre- and postpartum pelvic disorders, and pregnancy-related issues including back, neck, hip and pubic bone pain, sciatica, leg cramps and foot pain are just a few of the issues that can affect a woman's life.
Issues covered include:
- Incontinence, a loss of bladder control or bowel movements directly related to muscle control and strength of the pelvic floor which may occur with pregnancy or postpartum
- Pelvic pain, which may be caused by pelvic floor weakness and related hip dysfunctions and are easily treated by physical therapy
- Osteoporosis, by offering strength and flexibility instruction with a goal of improved posture, spinal stability, and increased bone density through exercise
- Postpartum care, which includes relief of repetitive stress injuries, rib pain, rectus diastasis (separation of stomach muscles), carpal tunnel syndromes, shoulder impediment, and pain caused by breastfeeding postures
- Pregnancy issues, including back, neck, hip and pubic bone pain, as well as sciatica, rectus diastasis (separation of stomach muscles), leg cramps, foot pain, and tingling in the arms and legs, with our physical therapists assessing and treating much of the pain and discomfort associated with pregnancy
Physical therapy can benefit patients with functional limitations caused by pregnancy, childbirth or menopause by reducing pain and improving function through evaluation, hands-on treatment, exercise and patient education.
