Your Path to Pelvic Health
Do you have bladder or bowel problems?
- Leaking urine is one of the most common and most embarrassing problems to live with. (Good thing we can help you. 🙂 An estimated 25-35 million people in the US suffer (usually in silence) from leaking urine, also known as urinary incontinence – 80% of these people are women.
- STRESS urinary incontinence (SUI) ~ this is when you leak urine as you laugh, cough, sneeze and exercise.
- No amount of crossing your legs will stop this leakage.
- And, as most women tell me, they are extremely embarrassed and worried that someone can see or worse yet SMELL the urinary leakage.
- Many women stop exercising, stop seeing friends or just stop going out socially altogether because of embarrassment, worry and depression about the leakage.
Is pelvic cancer common?
Pelvic cancers, for women, include: ovarian, uterine, vaginal, vulvar, anal, colon & rectal cancers. Many women will undergo surgery, chemotherapy and/or pelvic radiation to treat these pelvic cancers. Unfortunately, the treatments that save your life may have long term affects on your survivorship.

Do you have sudden bladder urges that leave you running to the bathroom?
- URGE urinary incontinence (UUI) is when you leak urine as you have
sudden bladder urges.
- Again, nothing is more frustrating & embarrassing than being in the middle of a store, suffer a sudden urge to pee, but being unable to hold it and then leaking urine all over yourself.

How can pelvic physical therapy help me after rape?
You may think you are the only one with problems like these. In fact, you may not have told anyone (including your doctor) about these embarrassing and life changing issues.

Many times these problems are related to pelvic floor muscle dysfunction and are treatable with Pelvic Health Physical Therapy.
