Specialized help for women's health concerns
Women have unique health problems that can be greatly helped and often eliminated by physical therapy. These include low-back pain, urinary incontinence, pelvic floor dysfunction, pelvic pain, menstrual cramping (dysmenorrhea), fibromyalgia, osteoporosis and prenatal and postpartum issues.
Help for "leaky bladder" issues
For example, the inability to predict or stop urine flow (from drops to ounces) is a common disorder experienced by more than 17 million females of all ages. Urinary incontinence is the involuntary loss of bladder control. There are many causes of urinary incontinence (pregnancy, surgery, overweight, etc.).
A variety of diseases, diabetes among them, can also contribute to compromised bladder control. Often difficult to manage, it can lead to embarrassment, frustration, isolation, and depression. But you don’t have to live with it. Urinary incontinence is not a hopeless condition. Urinary incontinence is not a disease or a “normal part of the aging process.” It is a symptom of an underlying condition or problem, which could be solved with the help of a skilled physical therapist and an effective treatment program at Neil King Physical Therapy.
We also provide a self-help program of specialized therapeutic exercises that are proven effective for helping you regain optimal bladder control.
Help for low-back pain during pregnancy
Pregnant women often suffer with lower back problems and pain. This is usually caused by the extra weight and stress on the muscles of the abdomen. Physical therapy can help strengthen these muscles and those that support the low back. After delivery, there may be musculoskeletal problems and sacroliliac problems caused by the tightening of pelvic muscles post-partum.
Pelvic floor weakness and dysfunction is another common problem experienced by women. At Neil King Physical Therapy, we address and correct these problems with specialized core strengthening exercises, including Kegel exercises to strengthen the pelvic floor.
