PHYSICAL THERAPY Through our program, specialized hands-on techniques and treatments are applied, addressing the poor alignment and dysfunction of the spine, which can irritate and cause pressure on nerves. Physical therapy is the science of restoring pain-free movement with exercises and hands-on techniques. These principles are applied to the body when an injury is sustained to help facilitate a great recovery.

Are you like many people, suffering from aches and pains? A daily back or neck ache may be more of a nuisance than anything. However, episodes of pain can become progressively worse, lasting longer and traveling to other parts of your body. If you don’t stop the cycle of pain and discover the root cause of each painful episode, the accumulation of damage to your body may lead to eventual failure of the spinal structures and possible surgery. However, if you address and treat the cause of your pain early through physical therapy, drastic measures such as surgery can often be avoided. Here are some tips to help you battle daily aches and pains: 1. ICE & HEAT For muscle pain from overuse or injury, rest that body part and take acetaminophen or ibuprofen depending on what your doctor may advise you is best. Apply ice for the first 24 - 72 hours of an injury to reduce pain and inflammation. After that, heat often feels more soothing. 2. SLEEP Be sure to get plenty of sleep and try to reduce stress. The amount of sleep is dependent on your body. Some people only require 7 hours, others 9. Also, make sure you have a good mattress and sleep on your side or back with pillow support for your legs. If you sleep on your side, put the pillow between your legs. If you sleep on your back, put the pillow behind your thighs.

FYZICAL Is NOT Shy About Fixing Your Leaking Bladder

Frequently Asked Questions: I’ve already tried Kegels?What more will physical therapy do? It’s true that part of the process will likely include some pelvic floor strengthening exercises (often referred to as Kegels) But good pelvic floor therapy is much more than that. And unfortunatelymost people who attempt “Kegel’s,” perform them wrong. When we teach the strengthening exercises in therapy, we use feedback techniques that ensure you are using the correct technique. With the correct technique we can monitor the expected progress and reach our goals as expected. I s Pelvic Floor Therapy just for women? No, Traditionally this type of therapy has been called “Women’s Health” But we are moving away from the name, because it turns out that Men have many of the same problems as women. Including leaking bladder. That’s right men, no need to feel shy or embarrassed about this. It’s quite common. And more important, it’s fixable. Will I have to undress or have an internal exam? It depends on the situation and your individual problem. An internal exam (similar to a gynecological examination) is the gold-standard method of examination for pelvic floor therapy cases, but it’s not always necessary and you always have the ability to opt out if you prefer. However, our therapists are very professional and will keep you as comfortable and modest as possible during the process. You can count on the best results following the therapist’s recommended exam and treatment.

You might be unaware that leaking bladders are very common. (See the Stats to the right.) 50% of women over 65 years and 35% of all women have leaking bladders.
