Pelvic Health Program
Our Whole Body Health Physical Therapy Team is fortunate to have two extensively trained pelvic health specialists, Kara Schuft, PT, DPT and Genesis Helms, PT, DPT. They are able to perform both internal and external exams as necessary and provide treatment for both women and men who may be experiencing pelvic pain and dysfunction. Our program includes education about your condition, strengthening, a home exercise program, and manual techniques that can help you get on track to reach your goals.
Pelvic dysfunction can include, but is not limited to:
Chronic pelvic pain
Rectal pain or pain in the tailbone/coccyx
Pain during pregnancy or postpartum
Sexual dysfunction due to pain
Pelvic organ prolapse
Urinary urge and incontinence
Bowel and fecal disorders including constipation
Pre- and post-partum dysfunction
At Whole Body Health Physical Therapy, we prioritize professionalism and ensuring comfort during your session. We are proud to say that feedback from our clients regarding our pelvic health sessions reflect exactly that. You are not alone with your pelvic health, and we are here for you to discuss your problems and find solutions as soon as possible.
Examples of treatment interventions include general education regarding your potential pelvic dysfunction, urinary logs which tract urinary frequency to ultimately help decrease frequency, variations of strengthening, manual treatments, education on pre- and post-partum care, and sexual dysfunction and pain guidance.
Unfortunately, a lot of people with pelvic pain do not know that conservative treatment is an option, but it is. Whole Body Health Physical Therapy would love to be your provider for your pelvic health. Please refer to Kara’s page to find her contact information and discuss if pelvic health physical therapy may be best for you.
If you are a member of Oregon Health Plan (OHP), you may be experiencing difficulty finding a pelvic health specialist that accepts your insurance. We will see you! Contact our front desk to discuss your insurance process for treatment authorization.
