Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy
Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy
Pelvic Floor Therapy helps strengthen the pelvic floor muscles to reduce pelvic pain, improve bladder control, bowel control, and sexual function. Building strength takes time, but committing to a physical therapy plan can greatly improve your quality of life. Often, providers will work with female patients before and after pregnancy and after urogynecological surgeries such
as a hysterectomy.
Most people associate physical therapy with helping patients recover from injuries, but it can also be a solution for bladder control and pelvic floor problems. Just as physical therapy can help an accident victim regain the use of muscles in an arm, these therapies can also help a patient exercise pelvic floor muscles and eliminate incontinence. Pelvic Floor Therapy can help you overcome incontinence and other pelvic floor dysfunction problems without surgery. In addition, there are different types of pelvic floor dysfunctions and causes for incontinence, each one presenting its own set of challenges when it comes to treatment. All Women Urology offer a variety of alternative treatment options that we tailor to fit the specific need of each patient.

Five Stars! I had a wonderful experience at my office visit today. Dr. Lobby is very sensitive, bright and most of all extremely caring. The entire staff from the front desk to the nurses are welcoming and respectful. Being a patient at All Women Urology is a great experience and I recommend this urology practice highly.
I actually look forward to my appointment with Dr. Lobby. Not only is she caring and empathetic, but April is also very kind to us patients.
I was so fortunate when my OB/GYN doctor referred me to Dr. Nancy Lobby and All Women Urology. She is not only an excellent physician but also a caring and extraordinary person. Her staff is an extension of her, professional, thoughtful and an absolute pleasure to deal with. Dr. Lobby only treats women! How good is that!
