The women’s health and pelvic floor therapy program at Frazier Rehab Institute was developed to offer services for women living with urinary incontinence, urinary urgency, pelvic pain, dysfunctional voiding/defecation and pregnancy related pain.
A study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association shows that pelvic floor disorders, such as urinary incontinence affect up to one-quarter of American women. Urinary incontinence, or involuntary loss of bladder control, isn’t something that just happens to older patients. In fact, the condition affects men and women alike, young and old. More than 25 million Americans have urinary incontinence, and the experience can leave them feeling ashamed, socially isolated, and depressed. Recent research has demonstrated the effectiveness of physical therapy in treating the symptoms of urinary incontinence. Pelvic floor muscle training, in conjunction with bladder retraining, has been shown to reduce or resolve symptoms of urinary incontinence in women.
Our specially trained physical therapist is skilled in evaluating and providing patient centered treatment in women’s health issues through different stages of life. We provide treatments that address muscle weakness and imbalance, spinal and pelvic joint dysfunction and provide guidance related to modifications of activities of daily living.
