About Womens Health

Pelvic Health encompasses both Men and Women who suffer from some type of pelvic floor dysfunction which is common during each individuals’ lifetime. There are many different types of pelvic floor dysfunction, including urinary incontinence, which is involuntary loss of urine. Millions of Americans suffer from urinary incontinence (UI), which can be diagnosed as stress UI, urge UI or mixed UI.
Women, men and children can all be affected by pelvic floor dysfunction.
Other Pelvic dysfunctions include weakness in PFM, atrophied PFM, tight PFM, impaired coordination, and non-relaxing or non-contracting PFM. Pelvic floor can be impacted by the sacroiliac joint (SI), low back, coccyx, and the hip.
Dysfunctions such as low back pain with pregnancy, urinary or fecal leakage, pain with intercourse and lower abdominal pain, can all be treated. Experts are needed during and after pregnancy and in caring for all of your musculoskeletal needs to reduce the risk of prolonged pain/dysfunction after pregnancy and increase core strength. Physical Therapy can reduce the risk of continued low back pain postpartum and decreased diastasis recti with proper alignment and strengthening to return to daily activities safely.
