Over 13 million adults in America are effected by incontinence: 57% of women between the ages of 35 and 74 and 11-34% of men. However, only 1 in 12 people will share this issue with their primary care provider. It's a problem and it's not talked about. However, evaluation by a physical therapist can help. Our treatments include exercise, behavior change, soft-tissue mobilization and manual therapy, education and bladder retraining.
This is an issue for up to 25% of the women in this country and can include pain with intercourse, interstitial cystitis, irritable bowel syndrome, vulvodynia, and vestibulitis, pain in the testicles or penis and pain in the lower back. This is a complex condition that is approached with care and understanding. By working with you and your health care team we can have a great effect on the above painful conditions by retraining the pelvic floor muscles and the processing of pain.
Pregnancy and Post-partum
During this exciting time of life it is hard to take a moment for yourself and it is even harder to find answers to some of the most basic questions. What can I lift? Can I exercise and what should I do? Should I be feeling this way right now? How can I best prepare myself for labor and delivery? What more do I need to know about recovering from C-section? Pregnancy and post-partum care with a physical therapist trained in pelvic health can help answer all your questions as well as treat the everyday aches and pains."
