Women’s Health and Physical Therapy

Women's Health and Physical TherapyPelvic pain is becoming more and more discussed among women as well as urinary and/or bowel incontinence. All of these symptoms are a result of pelvic floor dysfunction which is caused by pregnancy, childbirth, surgery, chronic coughing, chronic constipation, trauma as well as aging. At Fusion Physical Therapy our women’s health physical therapist, Jackie Saravane can help!

A women’s health physical therapist can help you alleviate pelvic floor pain as they understand the impact of hormones and how they impact a condition, injury or dysfunction as well as the recovery process. They also realize that each woman is very different and they come with many different concerns that range in ages from young athletes to postmenopausal women. For example, a younger active athletic female requires a very different treatment than a pregnant woman or a woman who has already delivered a baby.

Many young athletic females experience foot, knee and back pain which tends to limit their ability to perform at a high level. I bet you weren’t aware that foot and knee pain can be caused by back pain. This type of problem is identified by our trained women’s health therapist as she has the knowledge and competency to identify these problems and address them which in turn allows you the ability to recover quickly.

Pregnant women and those who have experienced child birth most likely have experienced pelvic pain along with back pain as pregnancy and childbirth place a significant amount of strain on a woman’s body, especially the pelvic floor. Challenging and difficult deliveries can result in pelvic pain, incontinence or even pelvic organ prolapse. Our skilled women’s physical therapist can help by:

  • reducing pelvic and back pain that was caused during pregnancy
  • improving the stability of the pelvis
  • eliminating incontinence and pain
  • preventing the need for surgery or even medication

Jackie Saravane also treats the following symptoms:
