Many women experience pelvic pain as well as urinary and/or bowel incontinence because they suffer from pelvic floor dysfunction. This dysfunction is the result of childbirth, pregnancy, chronic coughing, surgery, trauma, chronic constipation as well as aging. At Oklahoma Physical Therapy our women’s health physical therapist can help!
A women’s health physical therapists understand how hormones impact a condition, injury or dysfunction as well as the recovery. They also understand that each woman is very different and their concerns can include anything from young athletes to postmenopausal women.
For example, a younger athletic female will require a much different treatment than a pregnant woman or a woman who has delivered a baby.
Younger athletic females tend to experience knee, foot or back pain which limits their performance. Did you know that foot and knee pain can be caused by back pain? Our trained women’s health therapist has the knowledge and competency to look for these types of problems and address them which allows you to recover quickly.
Pregnant women and those who have experienced child birth have more than likely experienced back and pelvic pain as pregnancy and delivery place a great deal of strain on a woman’s body. Challenging and difficult deliveries can result in pelvic pain, incontinence or even pelvic organ prolapse. A skilled physical therapist can:
- reduce pregnancy-related pelvic and back pain
- improve stability of pelvis
- eliminate pain and incontinence
- prevent the need for medication or surgery
Our women’s health physical therapist also treats the following:
- Bowel Incontinence
- Breast Cancer
- Pelvic Pain
- Urinary Incontinence
