Women’s and Men’s Health


Women’s Health

Often women suffer in silence with disorders or dysfunctions that can be treated. 1 in 3 women deal with leakage during sneezing, laughing, coughing or exercising! Dysfunctions such as low back pain with pregnancy, urinary or fecal leakage, pain with intercourse and lower abdominal pain, can all be treated by a Physical Therapist. A Women’s Health Certified Physical Therapist is someone who specializes in the treatment of women’s medical conditions, such as the above issues.

We are the experts in caring for you during and after pregnancy and in caring for all of your musculoskeletal needs. Our Director of Rehabilitation has been specializing in the area of women’s health since 1999 and keeps our staff educated to stay at the forefront of all pelvic health Physical Therapy treatments!

Men’s Health

There are specific issues that arise for men that can be addressed with physical therapy. While back pain, athletic injuries and other orthopedic injuries are well known to be commonly treated by physical therapy, most men do not realize physical therapy can also help with male-only pelvic dysfunctions. Some of these common dysfunctions can be treated at Smart Body Physical Therapy with Pelvic Floor Rehab.

Supporting Literature

“Pelvic Floor re-education was significantly more effective than placebo treatment in decreasing both the duration and degree of incontinence after radical prostatectomy, with the greatest difference being in the first 4 months after surgery.
Since there are no side effects or risks from therapy, the authors advise that physiotherapy be offered to all patients with incontinence from day 1 after catheter removal.”
