Orthopedic injuries in women are often more complex due to past history of childbirth, pregnancy, surgeries and various issues that arrive over a woman's lifespan. When treated in the context of the original dysfunction, the result is very successful.
Pelvic floor therapy can be daunting and often misunderstood. With a little information about what it actually entails and how it will be so helpful to you as an individual, I believe you will welcome this process.
Evaluation and treatment incorporates an assessment of pelvic floor musculature, bladder and bowel habits and well as associated orthopedic conditions . Education regarding normal bladder and bowel function can greatly enhance patient understanding of the contributing factors. Certain traumas, surgery,
hormonal changes, pregnancy and childbirth are common events which
instigate a pelvic floor dysfunction. Symptoms such as abdominal/pelvic
pain, nerve injury, urinary/fecal incontinence can result due to a
muscular weakness or muscle inhibition that originates in the pelvic floor.
Please do not hesitate to reach out with
any questions prior to making an appointment. Many patients prefer to
have a conversation prior to treatment.
We also offer yoga, pilates, and core strength classes specific to our patient population groups. These classes allow women to progress their rehabilitation within a supportive environment while exploring various modes of exercise to incorporate the techniques into a lifelong practice.
Please contact us with any questions. We look forward to hearing from you.
