Some of the physical changes that women experience result in pain, stress and even embarrassment.

Who Will Benefit From Our Services
We provide services for women experiencing a decline in physical or sexual function due to pelvic floor weakness and/or pain. We can help with conditions including:
Muscular or joint impairments (such as pain, weakness or numbness) related to pregnancy or childbirth
Pelvic floor muscle tension or pain
Post-surgical abdominal or pelvic pain
Sciatica (numbness/pain down the leg)
Numbness of the arms or hands
Weakness of the abdominal muscles
Incontinence of the bowel or bladder (mild to severe leakage that occurs when you cough, sneeze or exercise)
If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, talk to your doctor, who can prescribe physical therapy for you at our Women’s Center. After you are referred for therapy, we will conduct diagnostic tests through biofeedback to assess strength, posture, and integrity of the pelvic floor and abdominal muscles. Based on your evaluation, we will develop a personalized program for you with appropriate goals and a projected time frame for successfully achieving them.
