Introduction to Women's Health and Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy

Women’s Health and Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy (WH PT and PFPT) is a specialization within the field of physical therapy that addresses the physical and functional impairments related to pelvic floor conditions (such as incontinence, prolapse, and pelvic pain), pregnancy, and postpartum. Although many of these conditions are common in women throughout all life-stages, but they are not normal. There are simple, conservative treatment options available that can significantly improve your quality of life and prevent the progression of your symptoms over time.

You should be evaluated by a pelvic floor specialist if you have any of the following symptoms: strong urge to urinate, increased frequency of urination, leakage or urine or stool, difficulty evacuating your bladder or bowel, falling-out sensation or bulge in the vaginal area, pelvic pain, pain with sex, weakness/instability throughout midsection and/or pelvis, or a bulging belly/separation of the abdominal muscles.

Please feel free to contact Britt Colston, our Director of Women's Health, with your questions or to schedule a free 20 minute consultation. Email Britt at britt@bbnphysicaltherapy.com or call 859-654-0119 to schedule by phone.
