Conditions We Treat
Pregnancy-Related Pelvic Girdle Pain
Sixty to 70 percent of women experience pelvic girdle pain during their pregnancy. The pelvic girdle is defined as the posterior pelvis (low back) and the pubic symphysis (joint in the front of the pelvis). Learn more.
Women at an increased risk for developing pelvic pain include: women who have fallen on their back or buttock, an episode of pack pain during pregnancy, episiotomy, tearing and/or forceps delivery and the habitual holding of pelvic floor muscles. Learn more.
Incontinence and Prolapse
Prolapse is the descent of an organ (such as bladder, rectum, uterus) into the vaginal canal. There are three types of incontinence, including: Stress urinary incontinence, urge urinary incontinence and fecal incontinence. Through pelvic physical therapy, we help you gain control of these issues so you can lead a normal life. Learn more.
