Pelvic Health Director

Pelvic Health Program

This program provides physical therapy to those who experience pelvic floor dysfunctions or conditions. 

Our certified pelvic health therapists focus on a “Whole Person” approach, utilizing principles of physical therapy to provide a structured, effective and safe reconditioning to pelvic floor muscles. 

The ultimate goal is to improve strength and function of the pelvic floor muscles to alleviate pain, weakness, or dysfunction. This aspect of pelvic health therapy can be translated across many conditions, improve quality of life and return individuals to their normal daily activities.

During the course of their treatment our therapists will also help patients to increase their confidence in performing daily functional activities without fear of incontinence and debilitating pelvic pain symptoms.
