Women's Health

We go behind just examining the pelvis and isolated pelvic floor training. We use a comprehensive approach to therapy, examining you from head to toe. We are concerned with finding the WHY rather than chasing symptoms.

 

What to Expect from the First Visit: 

  • Medical History Review
  • Review of goals and activities you'd like to get back to 
  • Movement Screening Assessment of the back and hips 
  • External & Internal Examination of Pelvic Floor musculature 
  • Exercise & Stretching instructions as needed Proper Activation of Core System to safely return to exercise Treatment & Care of Plan

 

ATHLETIC INCONTINENCE

 

Turns out, 50% of female athletes experience incontinence during their lifetime. And it is not always associated with postpartum. The cause is not as simple as pelvic floor weakness--the muscles could be weak, overburdened or both. Thats where Run Raleigh comes in. A pelvic trained physical therapist will give you the tools and education to do the activities you love--leak free!

Pelvic Floor physical therapy will address dysfunctional movement patterns, pain and any feeling during Postpartum. Feel confident and comfortable as you transition into Motherhood!
