Why See A Physical Therapist?


For Genital Pain
  • Vaginal, rectal, perineal and genital pain can occur with sexual intercourse, urination, or even sitting; and may involve the lower abdomen, vaginal area, or be associated with low back pain. Includes vaginismus, vulvar pain syndromes, and dyspareunia.
  • Treatment goals: to get rid of pain with activity including pain during sexual intercourse.
During & After Pregnancy
  • Women may suffer from joint or muscle pain, sciatica or back pain, swelling in the feet and hands, or carpel tunnel syndrome.
  • Treatment goals: to avoid loss of strength and circulation, alleviate pain, create pelvic and trunk stability that is lost during and after pregnancy in order to be pain-free, learn safe body mechanics to protect your back during sleep and with breast feeding, and learn unique exercises to assist with an easier labor and delivery. Bed Rest: special arrangements can be made for home visits.
For Osteoporosis & Prevention
  • Treatment goals: to learn customized weight bearing exercises designed to lower the risk of breaking bones and designed to meet your lifestyle. 

After Abdominal Surgery

  • Includes hysterectomy, hernia repair, cesarean section, removal of ovarian cysts, and cosmetic surgery.
  • Treatment goals: to improve posture associated with weak muscles, improve quality of movement with walking and reaching for objects overhead, and alleviate pain associated with scar tissue.
For Urinary Incontinence
  • Can occur with sneezing, coughing, during pregnancy, or following childbirth. Stretching or trauma to the pelvic floor muscles may cause weakness which can cause uncontrolled urine or fecal loss.
  • Treatment goals: to decrease urinary frequency or urgency, increase muscle control in the pelvic floor and abdominal muscles to alleviate urinary leakage.
For Orthopedic Conditions
  • A strain, sprain or pain can occur in any muscle or joint in your body whether or not you’ve had surgery.
  • Treatment goals: to relieve pain and increase function with everyday activities.

Your symptoms will be evaluated and treated using some of the following tools and techniques: 

  • Soft Tissue Massage to alleviate pain in tight muscles.
  • Biofeedback/sEMG to train weak or uncoordinated muscles to function normal.
  • Therapeutic Exercise to stretch or strengthen muscles and relieve pain.
  • Electrical Stimulation to alleviate pain and relax muscles.
  • Joint Mobilization to increase movement and decrease pain.

  • Visceral Manipulation for increased motility and mobility of organs, and decreased dysfunction.
  • Infrared Light for increased oxygenation and tissue healing and decreased pain.
