Gynecology & Incontinence
For Women in Mid- and Later-Life
The one constant in a woman’s life is change. From the beginning of puberty through menopause, women experience many physical, biochemical and emotional changes. Some of these changes require medical intervention. Some can result in pain, stress, even embarrassment, particularly those related to Gynecology & Incontinence issues. We offer innovative treatment options to help you deal with the changes that occur later in life, to help you feel like yourself again.
Effective Treatments for Incontinence
Pelvic floor disorders affect millions of women, and many of those women suffer needlessly, not realizing the help that’s available. We’ve developed a unique program that specializes in the evaluation and treatment of this common physical concern. Through education, physical therapy and other treatments, we can help you deal with a variety of problems, including:
Muscular or joint impairments (such as pain, weakness or numbness) related to pregnancy, childbirth, childcare activities or menopause
Incontinence of the bowel or bladder (mild to severe leakage that occurs when you cough, sneeze or exercise)
Abdominal or pelvic pain following surgery
Lack of sexual appreciation related to pain or weakness
If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, talk to your doctor, who can prescribe physical therapy for you at our Women’s Center. After you are referred for therapy, we will conduct diagnostic testing through biofeedback to assess strength, posture, and integrity of the pelvic floor and abdominal muscles. Based on your evaluation, we will develop a personalized program for you, with appropriate goals and a projected time frame for successfully achieving them.
