Pelvic Health

Specializing in women's urinary incontinence and pelvic pain

 

It’s Time to Talk About Your Pelvic Health

Are you peeing when you laugh or cough? Do you feel like your bowel movements are not complete? Is sex painful? We know it can be uncomfortable to discuss symptoms of pelvic health dysfunction, but the truth is that these are common issues that many women experience and can be helped through targeted physical therapy. Some risk factors which contribute to a weakened pelvic floor are advanced age, history of abdominal/pelvic surgery, excess body weight, or history of trauma to the area, such as childbirth or heavy lifting. Our specialized pelvic health providers can treat your
symptoms and get you back to living a better, more confident life.
