Women’s health physical therapy overview for patients in South Portland, ME

From pregnancy to menopause, women have a number of unique health needs that require specialized care. For example, women who are pregnant commonly deal with lower back pain, pelvic pain and swelling in the feet, among other issues. In many cases, working with a physical therapist can be extremely helpful to women who are managing any of a range of health issues. 

At our clinic in South Portland, Maine the Back in Motion team provides patients with women’s health physical therapy that is specifically designed to reduce pain and improve function. By learning more about some of the core techniques, you can make an informed decision about your care. 

How do physical therapists treat women’s health issues?

Women’s health physical therapy is a specialized part of the field that requires specialized training in techniques including: 

  • Pre- and postnatal therapeutic exercise programs
  • Pelvic floor rehabilitation 
  • Posture and stability training
  • Education on osteoporosis and other concerns more likely to affect women

Communication and comfort are two of the cornerstones of women’s health physical therapy, and it’s important to find a therapist you can develop a rapport with and who understands your unique needs. Developing an effective treatment plan can sometimes take some trial and error, so it’s important to continually work with your therapist to tell him or her what is or isn’t working. Everyone is different, and what works for one person may not work for everyone.
