Women’s Health Services
In addition to pelvic floor therapies, Flex offers professional evaluation and treatment for some of the special conditions affecting women. Our therapists have advanced training in the treatment of incontinence, pelvic pain, and musculoskeletal problems occurring during pregnancy and post partum.
Pregnancy and post partum related pain
Flex can help expectant and new mothers with the pain they experience before and after childbirth. Back pain and other musculoskeletal complaints can often be improved through the use of soft tissue and joint mobilizations, posture education and proper exercise. Pubic bone and tailbone pain (coccydynia) are two of the frequent conditions we treat during the childbearing year.
Low bone mass affects an estimated 44 million Americans – 80% of them are women. Regular weight-bearing and strengthening exercise can help to prevent and slow the progression of this disease. Our therapists can assist by evaluating and correcting posture and instructing in proper exercise.
Please see PELVIC FLOOR PHYSICAL THERAPY FOR MEN AND WOMEN for information on incontinence, bowel conditions, pelvic pain and coccydynia.
