Women’s Health Physical Therapy

Therapeutic Services for Women

At Independence Health System, we understand the unique health challenges women face. Our dedicated team provides specialized women's health physical therapy services, combining a range of therapies to address specific women's health issues. We are here to support your journey toward optimal health.

Effective & Compassionate Care

The goal of our women’s health physical therapy program is to restore normal function, relieve pain, boost confidence, and get you back doing the activities you enjoy. Specific services we offer include the following and more:

  • Pregnancy-Related Conditions: We recognize the significant ways in which pregnancy and childbirth impact a woman's body. Our expert physical therapists offer personalized programs designed to alleviate discomfort and promote recovery during pregnancy and after giving birth.
  • Pelvic Organ Prolapse and Pelvic Pain: This is a condition where one or more of the pelvic organs drop from their normal position, often causing discomfort or pain. Women's health physical therapy can provide relief by strengthening the pelvic floor muscles, teaching proper body mechanics, and providing manual therapy techniques to alleviate pain.
  • Postpartum Pelvic Floor Dysfunction: This is a common issue after childbirth where the pelvic floor muscles become weakened or damaged, resulting in problems like incontinence or pain during sexual intercourse. A physical therapist can help by guiding patients through targeted exercises to restore strength and function to the pelvic floor.
  • Urinary and Fecal Incontinence: These are conditions characterized by the inability to control bowel movements or urination. Women's health physical therapy can aid in managing these conditions by teaching pelvic floor exercises to improve muscle control. Physical therapists can also offer bladder training techniques and lifestyle modifications to reduce symptoms.
