Women's Health Program
Our Women's Health Program provides treatment options for a variety of diagnoses, including:
Chronic Pelvic Pain: Our physical therapists have received advanced training in pelvic anatomy and function, and have an understanding of the conditions that can lead to pelvic pain. Extensive knowledge of the pelvis and pelvic floor muscles, combined with a physical therapist's evaluative skills, allows our therapists to play a valuable role in the treatment of chronic pelvic pain.
Incontinence: Incontinence is a common problem that affects up to half of all women and about 20 percent of all men. Our highly skilled therapists utilize a variety of treatment options, including pelvic floor musculature strengthening, behavioral training, and biofeedback. Treatment typically consists of 6 treatment visits.
Fibromyalgia: Fibromyalgia is treated through a special, individualized program designed to assist the patient in regaining control over their lives. The Fibromyalgia Program stresses education and combines body mechanics, postural education, gentle stretching, aerobic exercise, and strengthening. Pacing, ergonomics, sleep hygiene, and mind-body techniques are also included in our program as a way of controlling symptoms.
Lymphedema: Our program can significantly improve lymphedema symptoms with Complete Decongestive Therapy. Decongestive Therapy combines manual lymph drainage, compression bandaging, skin care, exercise, education, preventative precautions, self management methods, and custom fitted support garments. Treatments are designed to reduce swollen limbs and improve quality of life. For more information on our Lymphedema program, please view our brochure.
Osteoporosis: Our program includes thorough evaluation, exercises designed to reverse poor postural patterns, instruction on activities of daily living, body mechanics and positioning, and modalities to treat symptoms of this debilitating disease.
Pregnancy Related Disorders: Sacroiliac Dysfunction, incontinence, low back pain, and Carpal Tunnel Syndrome are treated in physical and occupational therapy.
