Women’s Health Services
Did you know that in Europe and Canada, pelvic floor physical therapy is considered so important to women’s health that it’s deemed a routine part of annual gynecological care?
Pelvic floor issues that happen after pregnancy, childbirth, surgery, or as the result of high-intensity sports, are very common – but are not normal or inevitable. Our goal is to help restore your pelvic floor strength for optimal urinary, bowel, and sexual functioning.
Rachelle Bojer of Lotus Physical Therapy believes all women can benefit from a consultation with a pelvic floor physical therapist. You don’t have to be pregnant, have had children, or be an athlete to experience noticeable benefits from pelvic floor therapy.
Our women’s health services include:
Teens and Female Athletes
With more teens and women participating in sports and fitness programs like CrossFit, Barre fitness, and HIIT classes, pelvic floor dysfunction is becoming more prevalent in this population, even before having children. Rachelle can evaluate your core and pelvic floor and assess your form during your activity to ensure that you do not develop pelvic floor dysfunction later on.
At Lotus Physical Therapy, we offer a whole host of prenatal and postpartum services for women.
Breast Cancer Rehabilitation
If you’re recovering from breast cancer surgery, you know how much of a toll treatment can take on the body. At Lotus Physical Therapy, we understand this – and can help you heal. Physical therapy is a prime component of any breast cancer rehab program to ensure proper healing and recovery.
The benefits of post-surgical breast cancer rehabilitation include:
- Re-educating muscles to restore pain-free range of movement
- Reducing the risk of common side effects like lymphedema (lymphatic obstruction and swelling) and cording (scarring that can develop under the arm after removal of lymph nodes)
- Restoring sensation
- Alleviating joint stiffness
If you’re in need of a physical therapist with a passion for women’s health and wellness, contact us for a consultation. Therapist Rachelle Bojer at Lotus Physical Therapy has extensive experience treating a variety of pelvic floor, pregnancy issues, and other women’s health concerns.
