How Can Physical Therapy Help?

Many Women's Health problems improve significantly with treatment by a Licensed Physical Therapist who has specialized training in the treatment of the conditions listed above.

Often, these conditions are influenced by existing problems in the muscles, joints, or nerves (musculoskeletal system) of the low back, abdomen, or pelvis. Physical Therapists are experts in the evaluation and treatment of musculoskeletal problems and therefore, play an important role in comprehensive medical management of these problems. Successful Physical Therapy treatment may reduce or eliminate the need for medication or more invasive medical treatment.
