Healthy Focus Physical Therapy opened in 2004 with the purpose of providing physical therapy care to women struggling with symptoms unique to them. On the journey to providing better care for women our physical therapists have developed skills to treat problems of the pelvic floor muscles, pelvic pain, bladder and bowel control problems, painful intercourse, and breast cancer recovery.
After surgery or injury we can help you return to health by finding the cause of your symptoms. Examination of bone alignment, muscle strength, tone, and nerve tissue is a process of observing the whole body. We use an integrated, hands-on approach to treatment directed at the tissues causing pain. Exercise, functional retraining, and manual therapy are combined to get you back to daily activity or performance without pain.
Symptoms that are caused by conditions specific to women – such as pregnancy, caesarean section, hysterectomy, breast cancer, or hormone changes – are categorized as women’s health problems. Dysfunctional pelvic floor muscles cause symptoms in both men and women. Because of child birth, women tend to have more pelvic floor symptoms. Physical therapy offers skills and training to help you manage or resolve these symptoms.
Try Physical Therapy First
Physical therapy is a conservative approach – before medications or surgery – to managing muscle and joint conditions, including nerve pain, and pelvic health conditions in both men and women. Physical therapy can prevent the need for addictive narcotics and works to resolve chronic pain conditions. Research strongly supports the benefits of exercise and physical therapy intervention for conditions involving the musculoskeletal and nervous systems.
