Pelvic Health

Our Pelvic Floor Rehabilitation program was developed in order to help patients that are faced with painful and/or bothersome symptoms which interfere with their daily lives. 

We understand that these issues are complex and may include urinary, colorectal and musculoskeletal components.

Whether you are having issues with leakage of urine or experiencing pelvic pain; we have tools to help you navigate your next step. There are an alarming number of people that are affected by pelvic pain/dysfunction and incontinence, yet many are not aware that help is out there. Physical therapy for pelvic health and incontinence can help you develop the tools to manage your symptoms.

Please feel free to contact our participating clinics with additional questions regarding physical therapy treatments for men and women with pelvic floor dysfunction.

What to expect at your first appointment:

A Pelvic Health physical therapist will sit down with you, one-on-one, and discuss what’s going on, your medical history, and overall lifestyle. We are trained to treat all ranges of pelvic floor dysfunction and know how personal an intimate this can be. We will evaluate your posture, hips, back, and pelvic floor to determine the best plan for YOU to get back where you want to be.

A typical initial evaluation also includes:

  • Review of bowel and bladder diary
  • Internal examination of muscle tone and scarring
  • Assessment of pelvic floor strength, coordination, and endurance

Further information may be gathered with the use of biofeedback of the pelvic floor muscles and abdominal muscles. Your treatment will be individualized to your particular needs and may include manual therapy, education regarding your condition, biofeedback enhanced pelvic floor muscle training, instruction in a home program, core strengthening, and use of modalities as needed.

Patients will leave with a personalized treatment plan and the confidence that their personal therapist will work alongside them to help reach their goals and improve their pelvic health.

Here’s what some of our patients had to say...

I started PT after a car accident. The staff was extremely helpful not just with injuries from the accident, but also other issues that had been bothering me. They are very good at communicating problems and solutions and are friendly to boot. Can’t recommend enough.

five stars Kevin RET Patient

Attentive, responsive, pleasant in communication, knowledgeable staff. I got good results in a short time. Thankful to Dr. Andrew for useful information and for a program of exercises.

five stars Elena RET Patient

Doug Free, the manager at Mercer Island Physical Therapy, has a PhD in PT, and is an amazing diagnostic doctor who explains why a specific injury occurred. He also does fabulous work on your body. His entire staff is knowledgeable and excellent therapists. 

five stars Gary RET Patient

I saw Anne at 7 weeks post ulnar nerve transposition. I’ve made more progress in 1 week with her than I did in those first 7.  She is extremely knowledgeable and up to date on current research.  I’d feel very good about sending my family and friends her way!

five stars Holli RET Patient

Kelly is amazing! I felt very comfortable and she asked all of the right questions, was super friendly, and knows exactly how to help. I always leave feeling so much better, and confident that if I do my exercises, I will heal!

five stars Kelsey RET Patient

Michelle has been amazing to work with. She quickly diagnosed the root cause of the issues that continued to plague me after recovering from hip replacement surgery that other PT’s (different companies) could not. She listens, is creative, resourceful, and very knowledgeable. Everyone at the clinic is always very professional and interested in our progress.

five stars Conrac RET Patient

I have been going to Summit Therapy for a shoulder problem. I’ve made steady progress and have gotten much pain relief. The staff is very friendly and great to work with. I recently had a sudden problem of vertigo. My therapist knew exactly what to do and performed a treatment that stopped the dizziness.
