Our Services

Pre-Natal and Post –Partum Care

Our Physical Therapists are specially trained to treat patients who are planning to become pregnant, are currently pregnant, or are in the post partum time frame.  Pregnancy and the associated hormonal changes cause significant stress to the entire body, particularly the spine, pelvis, and pelvic floor.  Our therapists will educate you on proper movement patterns, positioning, exercises, and stretches to make your pre-natal and post-partum body as strong, flexible, and pain free as possible.

 

Here is a list of some, but not all, pregnancy related conditions we often treat:

Pelvic Floor Rehabilitation

The “pelvic floor” consists of a large group of muscles at the base of the pelvis that serve to maintain normal bowel, bladder, and sexual function, as well as providing support to the body’s core. Pelvic floor dysfunction can occur in men and women of all ages and cause symptoms such as pelvic pain, problems with bowel and bladder function, sexual dysfunction, and referred pain to the lower back, abdomen, and hips.  These symptoms may occur for a variety of reasons, including trauma to the pelvic floor (child birth, abuse, an accident, radiation/cancer treatments), muscle weakness, muscle spasm, chronic constipation, and other causes.

Our goal is to evaluate and treat your pelvic floor dysfunction in a respectful, private, and safe environment.  The Physical Therapists will evaluate the pelvic floor musculature as well as the lower back, pelvis, and hip region to best determine the source of dysfunction.  The exam may include an internal pelvic floor muscle evaluation, but only if it is comfortable for you.

If you have questions or concerns regarding this examination, please call the clinic and ask to speak to one of our Physical Therapists.
