Pregnancy, childbirth, and caring for a newborn can sometimes result in pain or loss of function. A woman may develop: low back, tail bone or pubic bone pain, neck & shoulder pain, pressure or heaviness, hand or wrist numbness or swelling, calf cramps, headaches, or incontinence.
Our physical therapists can provide specialized treatment, support and education to relieve these symptoms and prevent further problems.
The involuntary loss of urine can be the result of many things, including pelvic floor muscle weakness and poor bladder habits. Incontinence affects between 15-25 million Americans. Of men and women between the ages of 30 and 70, 33% have experienced urinary incontinence.

Pelvic pain has many causes. Frequently it can be attributed to musculoskeletal dysfunction, abnormal posture, weakness and decreased general mobility. If an imbalance occurs within any of the 80 muscles that attach or extend from the pelvis, symptoms may arise and pain cycles may occur.
Typical symptoms may include pelvic pressure, back, abdominal or tailbone pain, urinary urgency & frequency, pain with intercourse, and discomfort with tampon use.
Contact your health care provider to discuss a referral for physical therapy if you are having any of these issues. If your insurance does not require a physician referral, you may contact us directly. Call our Tukwila (206) 248-3080 office to schedule your initial evaluation.
