Women’s Health

Women’s Health Physical Therapy includes evaluation and treatment for pelvic pain, urinary incontinence, and scar tissue adhesions related to breast augmentation and reconstructive surgery following mastectomy.  Pelvic pain and incontinence commonly occur after pregnancy and childbirth, however may occur in other instances as well.  Common precipitating factors can include sacroiliac dysfunction, hip or labral dysfunction, coccyx pain due to fall, recurrent urinary tract infections/yeast infections, and/or trauma to the pelvic region.  Physical therapy treatment will begin with a one-on-one evaluation in a private treatment room to allow open dialogue about the patient’s symptoms and medical history.  Depending on the patient’s specific presentation, evaluation and treatment may include internal pelvic muscle palpation and treatment with consent from the patient.  Physical therapy treatment sessions will be designed to improve functional mobility and strength as needed on a case by case basis based on an individual’s specific impairments and goals.  Benefits of physical therapy include improvement in range of motion and strength, identification of behavioral patterns that contribute to pelvic pain and/or incontinence, and reduction in pain levels, improvement in continence and toileting habits to promote improvement in quality of life for the individual.

 

Physical therapy treatment is typically covered by health insurance, however it is best to confirm that your specific plan is accepted by Rehab United.  In the event that your insurance in not contracted with Rehab United, we do offer cash-pay services.  A prescription is not required for physical therapy, however your insurance company may require one for payment for services rendered.  For patient’s with pelvic pain, it is strongly recommended to see your OB-GYN to rule out underlying medical conditions contributing to your pain, such as an infection.  To schedule your initial evaluation, please contact the front office at either the Kearny Mesa or the Carmel Valley location and specify that you are interested in scheduling a Women’s Health Physical Therapy Evaluation.
