Why Women’s Health Physical Therapy?

I have been practicing physical therapy in the outpatient orthopedic setting in Charleston, SC since 2008. As a new grad, in a new city, with a new husband I eagerly approached my job as I had been trained in school: evaluate and treat. Help the patient return to their functional activities. Instruct in home exercise programs. Over the years, I became more confident in my skills learning from my co-workers and continuing education courses along the way. I developed meaningful relationships with my patients as I assisted them in their recoveries from surgery, over-use injures, weekend warrior projects, and more.

Physical Therapy can help you respond to the changes in your body.

It wasn’t until I became pregnant with my second son that I became more interested in women’s health PT. I was learning first-hand how important it was to continue my once active lifestyle in order to prepare for the pregnancy-related changes to my body and keeping up with an active 3 year old! Keep in mind, this is a tall order for full-time working moms with multiple children! After delivering a healthy baby boy, I set about my post-partum rehab, which I came to find out was not as easy as I thought with baby #2. I realized how “common” postpartum issues are, but that they are NOT normal! We do not have to live with problems like leaking and back pain for the rest of our lives just because we have had children.

That’s where physical therapy can help!
