As the holiday season fast approaches and winter is upon us, it is often difficult to find time to take care of ourselves. At Phoenix Physical Therapy, we often hear how tough it is for women to find even a few minutes to manage their health, stress and daily lives. Women of all ages are caregivers by nature and caring for others is top priority. But what about those nagging health issues that many women face? It is easy to ignore incontinence, constipation, urinary urgency and frequency. It is easy to think, ‘maybe it will go away on its own’ or ‘maybe I will be better tomorrow’. Unfortunately, it never gets better on its own….only increasing in severity if left alone.
At Phoenix Physical Therapy, we specialize in treating pelvic floor issues related to muscle dysfunction. Urinary incontinence, fecal incontinence, constipation, pelvic organ prolapse, urinary urgency and frequency and nocturia (frequent trips to the toilet at night) are but a few of the female issues we deal with on a day to day basis.
Our staff is great at helping busy women find a few minutes to care for themselves. We focus on each individual’s needs, priorities and health concerns related to pelvic floor muscle dysfunction. Treatments in our office are tailor made for each woman; no two patients are alike!
