Pelvic Therapy For Women

Specialized Physical Therapy for Women - Better Care for Better Quality of Life

Millions of women suffer from pelvic floor dysfunction which can lead to urinary and/or bowel incontinence and pelvic pain. Pregnancy, childbirth, chronic constipation, chronic coughing, surgery, trauma and aging can cause pelvic floor muscle tension, incoordination and weakness. Pelvic floor therapy may help! Pelvic floor PT treatment can often address the cause of issues and improve your quality of life.

Jodi's goal is to provide you with expert care in a comfortable atmosphere. She will provide you with plenty of patient information, so you're at ease right from the start.

Your pelvic floor is the “hammock” of muscles that supports the organs in your pelvis. Your pelvic floor does a lot of the heavy lifting in your body. It supports your core and keeps everything in place in your body. When this foundation of muscles gets too tight, too weak, or damaged, you can develop a pelvic floor disorder.

Symptoms of pelvic floor disorders are common and treatable. Almost 25% of women in the U.S. are affected by one or more pelvic floor disorders.*

What is pelvic floor therapy

Pelvic floor therapy is physical therapy that targets muscles in the pelvic floor to help treat pain, weakness, and tightness and the symptoms that go along with them. By working with a pelvic floor therapist, you can retrain your muscles and gain back control of your body and your life.

Jodi provides a wide range of treatment options including soft tissue mobilization, bowel and bladder retraining, internal and external biofeedback, joint mobilization, myofascial release, core integration strategies, and therapeutic exercises for strength, flexibility, and relaxation.
