Most people confuse women’s health with just pelvic floor dysfunction, but there are many other reasons women seek help from physical therapist. Other reasons include: incontinence, pelvic pain, lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, breast cancer, lymphedema, osteoporosis, fibromyalgia and other diagnoses that are more prominent in women than men. Treating women for women’s health issues is really just about treating women throughout their span.
Our team understands women’s health needs are different than men’s Health needs, such as women have different cardiac symptoms like jaw and neck pain. Whereas men will complain of chest pain, shortness of breath and upper body pain.
The pelvic floor is a large part of women’s health and our clinic has over 24 years of pelvic floor experience. Pelvic floor conditions include post-surgical complications, post C-section, episiotomy and hysterectomy.
Our clinic is an evident based practice using research to provide successful treatment to meet our patient’s goals. There’s adequate research out there supporting pelvic floor dysfunction and physical therapy intervention.
