What is Women's Health?

Women's Health is a specialized area of Physical Therapy that addresses dysfunctions unique to women. The primary areas currently addressed include the treatment of Urinary Incontinence and Breast Rehabilitation. Urinary Incontinence refers to the leakage of urine at inappropriate times.

Physical Therapy Can:

  • Give you control over your life and bladder

  • Same money and embarrassment by allowing less use of pads and undergarments.

  • Reduce the use of medication for incontinence

  • Possibly prevent the need for surgery

Breast Rehabilitation

Breast rehabilitation is treatment aimed at post-operative recovery of function and scar tissue remodeling for the purpose of minimizing adhesions, improving shoulder and neck function, limiting secondary biomechanical dysfunction in the shoulder and neck, and improving prosthesis fit/comfort in the case of mastectomy.
