Incontinence is very common among men and women of all ages. The good news is, whether caused by pelvic floor weakness or cancer treatment, incontinence is highly treatable.
While common, urinary incontinence and other bladder disorders (such as overactive bladder, urinary urgency or frequent urination at night) are never normal – even as you age. Weakness or too much tone in the pelvic floor muscles, as well as a variety of medical conditions, can create a loss of bladder control. Fortunately, the pelvic floor muscles, like any other muscles, can be retrained to function normally, allowing you to leave behind symptoms, limitations and embarrassment.
With years of specialized training and an exclusive focus on pelvic floor issues, our highly-experienced physical therapists bring a unique skill and compassion to both diagnosis and successful treatment.

- Interstitial Cystitis
- Neurogenic bladder

- Post-prostatectomy incontinence
- Urinary incontinence
- Urinary frequency, hesitancy, retention or urgency

- Chronic constipation

Our pelvic floor therapists offer uniquely comprehensive treatment to strengthen or relax the muscles of the pelvic floor, restore normal function and flexibility to the soft tissues, and eliminate pain. Our specialized expertise allows us to help men and women of all ages rediscover a life free of pain. For those diagnosed with Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome, we offer a nationally-recognized and highly successful Chronic Pain Program.

- Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome

Pelvic organ prolapse occurs when the connective tissues and normal support of the pelvic floor are weakened, causing the uterus, bladder, bowel, rectum or vagina to slide from their positions. Pregnancy, childbirth, obesity, constipation, trauma and surgery are all common causes.
We offer today’s most successful approaches to regaining pelvic floor strength and normal pelvic functioning.
Using a comprehensive, integrated approach, we routinely help men with post-prostatectomy incontinence, chronic prostatitis and rectal pain to eliminate their symptoms.
While back pain, urinary or bowel incontinence and pelvic pain are often experienced by pregnant women and new moms, these symptoms are never normal.
Through individualized and highly targeted exercises and therapies, we restore balance, tone and flexibility to the muscles and tissues throughout the pelvic area giving you back control, freedom and quality of life.
Over one-quarter of pediatrician visits are for incontinence, bedwetting or constipation. We specialize in treating these and other common pelvic floor conditions in children.
When a child’s pelvic floor muscles are weak, in spasm or too tight, a wide range of pelvic floor problems can result, from frequent urination to reoccurring bladder infections.
Our experienced therapists can help relax and retrain your child’s pelvic floor muscles, ending the embarrassment and discomfort. Our holistic approach includes looking at diet, sleep patterns and other behavioral issues that could contribute to the problem, and personalizing therapies to meet the unique needs of your child.
If you are affected by a pelvic floor issue, ask your doctor for a referral to our program. For more information on how we can help, give us a call.
