Pelvic Pain Program

Purpose

The Women's Health/Pelvic Pain Program is individually designed to meet the unique needs of each patient. Pelvic pain can affect men or women and can have varying causes. This pain can have negative influences on a person's daily life. Physical Therapy can assess and address the musculoskeletal dysfunction that can cause pelvic pain. The goal of this program is to educate and train patients to manage and, in some cases, eliminate their pelvic pain or other musculoskeletal dysfunction as it relates to their diagnosis.

Service Overview

Beginning with an evaluation, licensed therapists with specialized training formulate a treatment program based on each individual's situation. Treatment may include patient education, manual therapy, therapeutic exercise, biofeedback training and/or electrical stimulation therapy.
