Women's Health

AGADA Physical Therapy & Integrative Health Center is often the first conservative choice for women suffering with incontinence and pelvic pain, avoiding a treatment course that includes medication or surgery. Our specialized physical therapist has advanced training in the anatomy and the role of muscles and structures in and around the pelvis. These muscles work to support the bowel and bladder, stabilize posture during activities and assist in sexual activity. Problems with these muscles can result in pain, bowel and bladder difficulties, and can interfere with intimate relations.

What to Expect

AGADA’s treatment is specialized, highly professional and private. The therapist will provide a thorough evaluation, including a complete history of the problem, postural assessment, and muscle testing. In some cases a vaginal examination of the pelvic floor muscles will also be performed. A customized treatment program will be developed that includes:

Muscle re-education for postural correction, relaxation, and/or strength training.

Manual therapy for correction of joint mechanics and soft tissue restrictions.

Self management home programs that include exercise, body mechanics, education in diet and other behavior strategies to reduce and manage symptoms.


Our goal is to help our patients self-manage their condition. Individual cases vary in the amount of time needed to meet specific functional goals. An average range of visits for incontinence is 6-8 visits, for pregnancy and post-delivery 6-8 visits, and for pelvic pain 7-9 visits.
