Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy

Pelvic Floor physical therapy is a specialized form of treatment aimed to address dysfunctions of the pelvic floor. The pelvic floor is a group of muscles that run from the pubic bone to the tailbone, which help to support the internal organs and assist in sexual, bladder, and bowel functions. Reasons for treatment include urinary incontinence, painful bladder syndrome, painful sex, postpartum care, diastisis recti, pelvic organ prolapse, coccyx/tailbone pain, vaginal or anal pain, pelvic floor muscle spasms, low back pain, or hip/groin pain.

We Value Your Comfort

At Specialized Physical Therapy, our main concern is your comfort and confidence in the work we do. Evaluation and treatment will take place in the private treatment room, as women’s health and pelvic floor therapy include both internal and external procedures. Our physical therapist will take every measure to ensure your comfort during all aspects of the treatment session. Please feel free to call and ask to speak with the therapist with any questions prior to attending your first session.

What We Treat

Many Pelvic Floor symptoms overlap with other orthopedic issues and in order for a comprehensive and effective treatment, it's imperative to get to the root of the problem. With experience as an orthopedic physical therapist for over 6 years, Diana is confident she can provide the care it takes to solve the complexities of some of these issues.
