PT for (Pre)Menopause Changes
Women go through several hormonal changes during normal phases of life that predispose us to bowel and bladder problems or pelvic pain during normal activities we enjoy. Symptoms of urinary urge or incontinence, constipation or fecal staining, pain during sex, low libido, abdominal or pelvic pain may result in depression, embarrassment, dependence on medications, or withdrawal from living a full active life. All of these are treatable conditions, but most women, and many of their doctors, don't realize there are physical therapists with highly specialized training in this area of practice available to help you get your life back.
