Women's Health Q & A

What is women’s health?

Women’s health is rehabilitation tailored to people with female reproductive organs. Specifically, it combines healthy lifestyle changes, pelvic floor exercises, and other treatments to strengthen your core muscles and relieve uncomfortable symptoms.

Who can benefit from women’s health?

Make a women’s health appointment at Prosynergy PT if you experience any of the following symptoms:

  • Urinary incontinence
  • Painful urination
  • Pelvic pain
  • Pain during sex
  • Pain in the pelvic region or rectum
  • Muscle spasms in the pelvis
  • Constipation

You should also make an appointment if you regularly suffer from lower back pain.

What services does women’s health provide?

Prosynergy PT offers several women’s health services, including:

Prenatal rehabilitation

Prenatal rehab helps you prepare for giving birth. Your provider at Prosynergy PT can recommend activities that help you build strength, reduce pain, and improve your mobility.

Postpartum rehabilitation

Having a baby takes a toll on your body. Postpartum rehab uses strengthening exercises and other therapeutic treatments to help your body heal. By enrolling in rehab, you can reduce the risk of pelvic floor dysfunction, urinary incontinence, and pain during intercourse.

Treatment of urinary incontinence

About 50% of adult women experience some kind of urinary incontinence. Women’s health can teach you to strengthen your pelvic floor using at-home exercises like Kegels. Your provider can also recommend lifestyle changes that prevent unwanted leaks, like bladder training and dietary changes.

Treatment of sexual dysfunction

Physical therapy can even address pain during sex or difficulty having orgasms. Minimally invasive treatments like biofeedback can strengthen your pelvic floor and encourage natural lubrication.

Treatment of constipation

If you strain when having bowel movements, you’re also more likely to experience hemorrhoids and anal fissures. Therapeutic techniques, like sacroiliac joint realignment and muscle training, can help you stay regular, preventing these and other problems.

What kind of women’s rehabilitation might benefit me?

The kind of women’s rehab that will most benefit you depends on several things, among them your age, current health, and symptoms. After reviewing your medical records and a physical exam, your provider at Prosynergy PT can develop a custom treatment plan that aligns with your needs.
