Women’s health physical therapists evaluate and treat conditions that specifically affect women. They design treatment plans for each woman’s needs, challenges, and goals.
There are some conditions that women may be hesitant to discuss with their health care providers. The good news is that incontinence, pelvic pain, lymphedema, and many others are treatable. Physical therapy offers solutions that do not involve surgery or long-term use of prescribed medicines.
Physical therapists work with women of all ages and abilities to help you stay moving. Regular physical activity can benefit your physical, mental, and social health. It also can help prevent or improve many chronic conditions, such as heart disease, diabetes, obesity, depression, and some cancers.
