Women's Health

Women's health encompasses more than just treating urinary incontinence and pelvic pain.  Pelvic disorders can lead to musculoskeletal issues, problems with sexual health, and digestive disorders.  Pregnancy, childbirth, chronic constipation, surgery, trauma, and aging can lead to pelvic dysfunction.  Fortunately, physical therapy can help.

 

At Restorative Physical Therapy, we combine Integrative Manual Therapy with specific, personalized exercises and other physical therapy modalities to strengthen, relieve pain, and restore function.  We specialize in the following women's health conditions:

 

  • Pelvic Pain and Dysfunction:  We focus on decreasing pain/increasing function by implementing Integrative Manual Therapy along with targeted exercises to re-train the pelvic floor muscles and postural correction/education.

  • Lymphedema:  We implement manual techniques for lymphatic drainage, scar massage, and specialized exercises for home management.

  • Osteoporosis:  We aim to educate on decreasing the risk of falls along with how to properly move, lift, and carry out daily tasks.  We implement exercises to promote bone density.

  • Prenatal and Postnatal Care:  We use Integrative Manual Therapy to alleviate and prevent back pain and pregnancy-safe exercises to strengthen the core/pelvic floor.

  • Urinary Incontinence:  Manual techniques are used to re-train the bladder.  We educate on strengthening the pelvic floor as well as lifestyle changes to alleviate symptoms.
