Women’s Health Services
Provided at our Eagle River Clinic
As a new patient or while you wait for your child’s therapy, a physical therapist can discuss your post-delivery concerns in our dedicated, Women’s Health examining room.
Your therapist will examine your lower back, hip, and pelvis since these are common areas of referred pain from the pelvic floor. The physical therapist will provide you with home exercises and additional advice on how to address the above concerns. Your therapist’s goal is to help you get back to feeling healthy and normal again.
Women’s pelvic health physical therapy addresses issues related to prolapse, constipation, pelvic pain with exercise, intercourse, accidental leaking with exercise or leaking with daily living tasks.
94% of women have some degree of prolapse.
The lifetime risk of undergoing surgery for prolapse or urinary incontinence is approximately 11.1% by age 80.
The loss of pelvic floor muscle support is only one of the many risk factors for developing prolapse.
