Women’s Health Physical Therapy FAQ

+ Why you should see a women’s health specialist?

A women’s health physical therapist has additional education and training to evaluate and treat musculoskeletal conditions specific to women. Additionally, some women’s health therapists are able to perform a pelvic exam to assess the muscles of the pelvic floor which can be very beneficial in understanding your condition and creating a plan of care specific to you! While an internal exam may be part of your treatment, it does not necessarily need to be depending on your needs. Make sure you talk this through with your therapist.

Women from all walks of life can experience pelvic floor dysfunction. You don’t need to have given birth to have pelvic floor dysfunction!

Not all women benefit from doing Kegels and in some cases, it can actually make symptoms worse.

Pelvic floor dysfunction and the conditions associated with it are common, but they are not NORMAL and they may even get progressively worse! While these conditions are not life-threatening, they can be distracting and interfere with your everyday life and limit your ability to be active and participate in social activities. By addressing the symptoms and the cause, we can restore function to your pelvic floor and ultimately free you from the symptoms that keep you from living the life you want.
