May is Women’s Health Month, a time to focus on the unique health needs of women and raise awareness about the importance of prioritizing women’s health. Women’s health concerns, particularly those related to pelvic health, can often go unaddressed, leading to discomfort, pain, and even long-term complications. At Bodyworks Physical Therapy, we offer specialized services to provide women with the care and support they need to improve their pelvic health and overall well-being.
Our expert therapists are trained to assist women with a range of conditions that affect their pelvic health, including:
Also known as bladder leakage. This is a common problem for women after childbirth or even as we age but can affect anyone. Physical therapy will help you to strengthen the muscles that help you control your bladder.
Many women struggle with pain associated with their cycles (dysmenorrhea), endometriosis, or bladder pain. Physical therapy can work to manage tension and weakness in various areas of the pelvis to ease symptoms.
Dyspareunia (Painful Intercourse)
Learning relaxation techniques and breathing patterns to ease pelvic pain and tension can aid in releasing the pelvic floor for intercourse or the use of sanitary products.
Bladder retraining and urge suppression techniques can help with urgency leaks as well as reduce frequent trips to the restroom.
Pregnancy & Post-Partum Pain
Gentle and safe treatment of mothers to minimize pregnancy-related pain and aid in recovery post-partum to get back to your usual routine and the stressors of caring for an infant.
