What is Women's Health Rehab
A specially trained Women’s Health Physical Therapist is the ideal provider to help you gain control over your female related symptoms. We specialize in pre/postpartum rehabilitation, which includes anything from back pain due to nursing all the way to urinary incontinence. Many symptoms of pelvic dysfunction are caused by either pelvic floor muscle weakness or tightness, both easily treatable with the latest evidence-based physical therapy services for everyone from childbearing women to peri-menopausal females. The goal is to use techniques and exercises to improve quality of life for women by decreasing pain and increasing function.

Our biofeedback units measures the muscles response to electrical activity by the nerve’s stimulation of the muscle. This test is used to help detect neuromuscular abnormalities during contraction and inhibition of the muscle. Electromyography (EMG) is a method of assessing and treating pelvic muscle dysfunction. Pelvic muscle rehabilitation may assist muscles that have increased tension even when the patient or clinician cannot detect it.
At Therazona we understand the importance of patient education and how it can better enhance each patient's rehabilitation potential. Our physical therapist spend one on one time to educate and deliver patient specific details on their pathology, treatment, and plan of care.
We use a variety of hand on techniques such as soft tissue release, joint mobilizations, manual stretching, dry needling, cupping, and tapping. These modalities and techniques are used to reduce pain levels and increase soft tissue extensibility in order to progress towards prior level of function.
Muscle Re-education programs are designed to both increase the strength of the joint and increase the individual's awareness of proper balance and technique. The programs accomplish this goal by using a number of different exercises to train both the body of the individual as well as their conscious mind.
