Physical Therapist Services for Women's Health
Women’s health physical therapists have specialized education and expertise in the evaluation and treatment of both acute and chronic conditions that specifically affect women.
Physical therapists help you stay moving and design treatment plans for each woman’s needs, challenges, and goals. Regular physical activity can reduce the risks of pregnancy complications and ease discomfort like back pain.
There are some conditions that women may be hesitant to discuss with their health care providers. The good news is that conditions, such as incontinence, pelvic pain, lymphedema, and others, as well as physical problems that occur during pregnancy and following birth, can all be treated by a physical therapist. Physical therapy offers solutions that do not involve surgery or long-term use of prescribed medicines.
Physical therapists are movement experts who improve quality of life through hands-on care, patient education, and prescribed movement. You can contact a physical therapist directly for an evaluation. To find a physical therapist in your area, visit Find a PT.
