Women’s Health PT
From prenatal and post-partum care to perimenopause and menopause, many changes that women go through come with uncomfortable changes that are written off as “normal”. Freehold Physical Therapist, Theresa Wilk, has become passionate about trying to change the care that women traditionally receive throughout their life by expanding her own education and scope of treatment. She is excited to be able to offer help to women experiencing issues in all stages of life.
Perimenopause & Menopause
- Urinary Incontinence – You may experience stress incontinence (leaking with activities such as sneezing and coughing) and/or urge incontinence (overactive bladder, habitual voiding, going at night)
- Prolapse of pelvic organs – You may experience a heavy sensation or dragging in the vagina, lump or bulging, painful sex, bladder and/or bowels might not empty fully
- GSM or Genitorurinary Syndrome – With decreased estrogen, pelivc floor muscles can weaken or become imbalanced resulting in symptoms such as: urinary incontinence, painful sex or tampon use, constipation, changes in sleep, and weight gain.
