Women's Health

The female body is extraordinary. During the span of a woman’s life, many changes will occur to our body to accommodate ever changing needs and situations. These changes can be wonderful, but many can also be challenging.   A woman can meet these changes with the knowledge to prevent and/or treat these changes. Often, the knowledge needed to accomplish this may not be readily available for a woman to achieve this goal. Our goal is to give you this knowledge and provide support and treatment to empower you to live life to the fullest. It’s important for women to take advantage of the extraordinarily successful and proven physical therapy options that are available to them. With the expertise of a trained physical therapist, a woman can expect a restorative or preventative healing program specifically designed for her body and her life, that is non-invasive, non-surgical, non-pharmaceutical—physical therapy, a whole body approach to wellness.

What can I expect in PT?

Initially you will discuss your symptoms, past medical history, and your goals with your therapist.  According to your information and medical history, a musculoskeletal examination will be performed to evaluate your condition or any spine or extremity dysfunctions.  If applicable, a pelvic floor exam may be necessary to further evaluate and identify a plan for your issues. Upon your consent, an examination can be performed to evaluate your pelvic floor.  This examination is to determine the high or low muscle tone, connective tissue restrictions, symmetry or asymmetry of the pelvic floor, issues with hypersensitivity,  and the musculoskeletal integrity of the pelvic floor.  All of the information gained from your initial appointment and your goals will be used to map a plan of care to resolve your issues or preventative plan of care.  We welcome questions and strive to provide a professional and safe environment where you can take the next step to attain your goals.
