PHYSICAL THERAPY:
WOMEN'S HEALTH
Physical Therapy Services for Pelvic Floor Dsyfunction

Women’s health encompasses a variety of conditions, symptoms and treatments. Here at Direct Performance, we use an evidence-based, integrative approach that focuses on central control and movement strategies to improve pelvic floor function and reduce symptoms with daily activities and exercise.

Pelvic floor dysfunction can be present during pregnancy, postpartum or even in women who have not had children. Symptoms of pelvic floor dysfunction include urinary or fecal incontinence, incomplete bladder emptying, pelvic pain, and prolapse.  It is not uncommon to have pelvic floor dysfunction in the presence of low back or hip pain, and it is necessary to address these issues in order to fully abolish symptoms.

You will receive a thorough evaluation and a personalized treatment plan to address your specific limitations in order to return to fitness and sports without impairment.

INCONTINENCE IS COMMON, BUT SHOULD NOT BE NORMAL

A recent study surveyed over 300 female CrossFit athletes and 100 women participating in non-CrossFit fitness classes for presence of urinary incontinence (UI) and severity.
Results: 84% of those in the CrossFit group and 48% of the non-CrossFit group reported Urinary Incontinence . Of the 84% of CrossFitters, 40% reported moderate-severe UI. The exercises that had the highest association with UI were double unders and weightlifting.
