Rehabilitation Services Designed for Women

Urinary Incontinence

Urinary incontinence is defined as the loss of bladder control. The primary cause is weakness in the pelvic floor that occurs after pregnancy, and during and following menopause, secondary to decreased estrogen levels. Other factors that may contribute to urinary incontinence are:

  • Smoking
  • Certain medications
  • Too little fluid intake
  • Prolonged immobility
  • High-impact physical activity

Exercises, lifestyle changes, relaxation techniques and education on bladder irritants help in the treatment of these patients.

Pelvic Pain

Many women will experience pelvic pain at some time in their lives. Pelvic pain syndromes normally occur from pelvic trauma such as childbirth, surgeries, infections or injuries. Muscle and joint dysfunctions in surrounding areas can also contribute to pain and weakness in the pelvic floor. Our therapists can assess muscle weakness, pelvic asymmetries and provide individualized treatments for patients.

Therapists utilize:

  • Computerized biofeedback
  • Manual therapy
  • Relaxation techniques
  • Lifestyle modification
  • Therapeutic exercise

These strategies offer symptom improvement and restoration of function.


Pregnant women undergo significant postural stresses secondary to hormonal changes. These stresses can lead to musculoskeletal problems and pelvic malalignments.

Our therapists can identify areas of increased laxity, weakness and pain and develop individualized treatment programs utilizing exercise, manual therapy and soft tissue massage to help reduce pain.


Our therapists work with new moms to address abdominal and core muscle strength, correct pelvic asymmetries, and reduce c-section incision pain. Our goal is to return these patients to full strength and function. Ergonomics with baby and infant carriers are also addressed.

Osteoporosis is a disease characterized by low bone mass and an increased risk for fracture. Postmenopausal women are at the highest risk for osteoporosis, but it can strike at any age. It’s often called the “silent disease” because often the first symptom is a fracture. Exercise can help osteoporosis by:

  • Increasing bone mass
  • Improving posture
  • Improving balance
  • Reducing fall risk

Our therapists are skilled in developing exercise programs for patients with osteoporosis.
