What is Women’s Health

Originally established in 1977, the Section on Women’s Health of the APTA was formed to serve as a resource for therapists interested in the healthcare of women before, during and after pregnancy. Today “Women’s Health” physical therapy is a key component for treatment of pelvic dysfunction for both women and men. More than 2,500 therapists utilize every facet of their physical therapy training to evaluate and treat common and complex conditions that affect women and men. Patients across the life span, from the young athlete, to the childbearing woman, to the peri-menopausal woman, to the elderly man can receive benefit from physical therapy.

At COASTherapy we use a specific 5-Step Functional Approach that includes a thorough evaluation to determine the ‘true source” of the dysfunction, followed by structural restoration of joints and ligaments, followed by nerve and muscle retraining to prepare the body for exercise. Therapeutic exercise follows to imprint the changes and help the patient assimilate healthy behaviors to maintain the healthy changes in their home and work life.
