Everyday women suffer from pelvic floor dysfunction leading to pelvic, groin, or low back pain as well as urinary or bowel incontinence. Anything from pregnancy, childbirth, chronic constipation, chronic coughing, surgery, trauma, and aging can cause pelvic floor weakness, muscular guarding/spasms, and discoordination.
At Core Fitness and Physical Therapy, we understand the intimacy of Women’s Health issues. Our specialty-trained physical therapists are devoted to treating a variety of pelvic floor and musculoskeletal conditions by providing one-on-one care, with customized treatment programs, in a serene and welcoming environment. Our physical therapists offer Women’s Health services and expert therapy for pelvic health. Treatment can often address the cause of issues and improve your overall quality of life. Our goal is to provide you extensive pelvic floor education in a comfortable and warm environment while creating a program that is unique to your needs. We are devoted to providing you with the best care possible and collaborating with you on meeting your needs.
The floor of the pelvis is made up of layers of muscle and other tissues. These layers stretch like a hammock from the tailbone at the back, to the pubic bone in front. A woman’s pelvic floor muscles support her bladder, womb (uterus), and bowel (colon).
Wear comfortable, loose fitting clothing. We are a “shoe free” studio, and socks are recommended. Depending on your treatment plan, we may have you change into a gown.
