Now Offering: Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy
Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy refers to the evaluation and treatment of the muscles, joints and connective tissues that support the pelvic organs. Dysfunction in this area can lead to bowel and bladder incontinence, organ prolapse, pain and sexual dysfunction, and it can also contribute to low back pain, hip pain, and poor balance. Physical therapists, as experts in the treatment of neuromusculoskeletal conditions, use a variety of techniques to help patients achieve improved bladder and bowel control, pain relief and improved core strength and stability.
Currently, we are able to provide Pelvic Floor physical therapy for women with diagnoses of incontinence and/or pelvic organ prolapse. Please call us if you have any questions or to schedule an evaluation. Our Pelvic Floor therapist will be happy to talk with you prior to your appointment to discuss your condition and answer any questions you might have.

- Therapeutic Ultrasound

Massage therapy is one of the simplest healthcare practices available. Therapeutic massage stimulates the body’s natural healing abilities through stroking, kneading, and applying pressure to the body using an understanding of the principles of human anatomy.
When a soothing touch is applied to the skin, messages are sent to the brain to relax the body and release endorphins, the body’s natural painkillers. Rubbing the muscles and tissues of the body also helps to work out any stiffness or tension that is stored in the body, thereby improving flexibility and movement.
Massage therapists use several techniques to manipulate the soft tissues in the body. Massage therapy is useful to promote general health and well-being, as well as to address specific musculoskeletal issues.
First time only offer:
