Four benefits of visiting a specialist in physical therapy for women

From childbirth to menopause, women as a patient group have many unique needs. While you may think of these needs as being primarily served by specialists such as obstetricians and gynecologists, physical therapy can also play a critical role in women’s care. For example, many health concerns that women deal with, such as pelvic pain, can be related to physical issues such as weak pelvic floor muscles. 

The goal of physical therapy for women is to identify the physical causes of these health concerns and develop a treatment plan to address them. If you’re wondering what specific benefits you can enjoy from visiting a specialist in women’s physical therapy, take a few moments to read the following informative guide. We’re always here to help, so if you have any questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to reach out. 

Why see a specialist in physical therapy for women?

Here are the primary benefits patients can expect from physical therapy for women: 

  1. Personalized care — Women seeing a physical therapist may have questions about specific women’s health issues that only an expert can answer. A women’s physical therapy specialist will have the experience, background and training required to answer your questions and develop individualized treatment. 
  2. A stronger body — One of the primary goals of women’s physical therapy is to strengthen and stabilize the pelvic floor. Many women’s health problems are rooted in weakness and instability here, and a therapist can help you learn exercises that are specially designed to strengthen them. 
  3. Increased mobility — In addition to strengthening the pelvic floor, a women’s physical therapy specialist can also help you increase range of motion throughout the pelvic region. 
  4. Education — As an expert in the structure and functioning of your body, a therapist can help you learn more about your particular health needs and the lifestyle adjustments that promote your long-term health and wellness. 

To get the most out of these benefits, it’s important to find a therapist whom you can work with closely and who takes a compassionate and caring approach to treatment.
