Women’s Health: Physical Therapy Benefits
The female body is very different from that of a male body in terms of development however women have very different conditions that affect them daily throughout all phases of life. These conditions are mostly hormonal and most women experience these conditions during the childbearing phase due to the increased body activity. The condition might occur until a woman reaches menopause or beyond. Many of these conditions are the result of a weak pelvic floor muscle. At Fusion Physical Therapy, we have an experienced women’s health physical therapist that can help you when these common women’s health issues arise.
