National Women’s Health Month: Managing Your Health with Physical Therapy

Women’s health issues like back pain, pelvic health and urinary incontinence are not the easiest topics to discuss. But they are incredibly important to address, and what better time to do so than in May, which is National Women’s Health Month?

“It’s time for issues like urinary incontinence and other women’s health concerns to be treated just as common place as a fever or other aches and pains,” said Jenifer Johnson, PT, DPT, at Innovate Physical Therapy. “Ask your doctor about physical therapy. They are typically on board with anything that may help you improve your quality of life.”

The therapists at Innovate Physical Therapy help empower women to manage their health with specialized services designed to improve the health concerns that women are likely to encounter. Therapy services include pelvic floor evaluation, manual therapy, biofeedback and electric stimulation, general education and pelvic floor strengthening exercises.

 “We focus on many things from more general orthopedic lower back pain and wellness to more specific conditions including osteoporosis, pelvic organ prolapse and urinary incontinence,” said Johnson.

Physical therapy is a great option, as research has shown that pelvic floor muscle rehab can produce a 73 percent cure rate and 97 percent improvement rate for women with stress urinary incontinence.

Innovate physical therapists also can treat Sacroiliac joint (SIJ) dysfunction, cystocele and rectocele. In order to provide private and comfortable spaces, Innovate Physical Therapy offers individual therapy rooms.
