Pelvic Floor Therapy

Relief for bladder leaks, painful sex and other pelvic floor symptoms

Age, childbirth, injuries and other issues can take their toll on a woman’s body. Problems with your pelvic floor are often due to issues with weakened muscles. Our physical therapists are specially trained to use both internal evaluation and biofeedback to assess the integrity of the pelvic floor muscles and determine the best treatment for you.

Woman’s Therapy offers treatment for a variety of female conditions:

  • Endometriosis
  • Urinary Incontinence
  • Osteoporosis
  • Pelvic Floor Pain/Dysfunction
  • Levator Ani Syndrome: Muscle spasms in the pelvic floor muscles
  • Vulvodynia: Pain in the vulva or the perineum
  • Dyspareunia/Vaginismus: Painful intercourse
  • Prenatal/Postpartum Pain
  • Bladder leaks when you cough, laugh or sneeze
  • Pelvic pain during sex, urination or bowel movements
  • Severe cramps in the pelvic area
  • Uncontrollable urge to use the bathroom

Pelvic therapy for women can begin in the teens and continue through pregnancy and menopause.

There’s no need to feel embarrassed about discussing pelvic issues with your doctor. Some of the most common problems that many women face:

  • One in four U.S. women suffer from bladder leaks
  • 15 percent of U.S. women have chronic pelvic pain
  • Over half of women 50 and older experience pelvic organ prolapse, which involves one or more of the pelvic organs dropping from their normal position
