Witte Physical Therapy Areas of Concentration – Pelvic Health
July 18, 2023
As a small community physical therapy company, we try to be as many things to as many people as we can. We try to serve our community both inside our clinic and outside.
Outside of our clinic we work to support many different groups and organizations to ensure they have the resources they need to continue to thrive in and serve their communities. We provide community service and work to be an advocate for our communities by being involved with different groups and boards.
Inside of our clinics we have worked to assemble a staff that puts patients first. They work to build an individualized plan for each patient so that not all patients who have had a total knee replacement get the same plan. We have also worked to get our staff extra training and experience in many different aspects of physical therapy. We have an orthopedic certified specialist on board. We have a therapist who has taken a special interest and more advanced training in vestibular and balance therapies. We have a therapist who has seen and worked with a variety of women’s health issues. And finally, we have a therapist who has an extensive background in pediatric therapy. These are just a few of the areas that we have tried to work with as many patients as possible for our therapists. Today, let’s focus on those patients who could benefit from pelvic health therapy.
Most of the time when we think of pelvic health we think of woman’s health and pelvic pain. This pain can be from childbirth, aging issues, or other causes. However, men can have pelvic issues leading to pain or incontinence. Physical therapy aims to help correct and treat these issues for all types of patients.
A physical therapy evaluation will be performed by our pelvic health physical therapist to determine the cause of your issues and to develop a plan of care based on those findings. Treatment could consist of a variety of techniques aimed at improving flexibility, strength of intrinsic and extrinsic musculature, and core stability to name a few. Your treatment plan will be specific to you and developed based on your symptoms and goals. Most of the time these treatments are performed in a private room to give you the privacy you need to be comfortable with what we are working on.
If you are having any pelvic issues give us a call and set up a time to talk to a therapist to develop a plan that will work best for you!
