The pelvic floor is the anchor for which your body finds stability and strength to perform daily functions. A disruption in this vital system can lead to musculoskeletal, psychosocial, emotional, and physical impairments that can be debilitating, embarrassing, and can decrease your quality of life.

Women’s health physical therapy offers one-on-one care and treatment with a highly trained pelvic floor physical therapist, Amy Moses, DPT, OMT. Beginning with a thorough evaluation, a treatment plan will be established to efficiently and holistically help return you to a balanced, healthy, pain free lifestyle.

Treatment can include relaxation techniques, manual techniques, biofeedback training, personal exercise training, a bladder retraining program, or home exercises. Sessions are usually 45-60 minutes long in a private treatment room that offers privacy and comfort.
