Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy
What is Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy?
Pelvic Health Physical Therapist (PT’s) are sometimes referred to as Women’s Health Physical Therapy, however that is a misnomer as many men struggle with issues related to pelvic floor muscles and pelvic organs as well.
Our Pelvic Floor PT’s have specialized postgraduate training to evaluate the function of the pelvic floor and abdominal muscles, abdominal organs and viscera in both men and women.
A Pelvic Floor Physical Therapist plays a key role in both the resolution of pain as well as the prevention of injury. The pelvic floor muscles function to support our core, are pivotal in proper breathing mechanics and provide a stability for the spine.
Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy at the Anchor Wellness Center involves an integrative approach to pelvic health and wellness.
How do I know if I have am having problems with my pelvic floor?
If you answer yes to any of the following, you may want to consider a pelvic floor physical therapy evaluation:
Accidental bowel leakage
Bladder emptying problems
Bowel emptying problems
Complications of previous surgery
Frequent or urgent urination
Problems with the vulva
Recurrent bladder infections
Pelvic health issues are often of a very private nature – and we understand. Your care and health is our top priority.
Why don’t we take insurance?
We pride ourselves on being able to deliver highly specialized, one on one care. Our obsession with delivering high quality care means that we also choose to not participate with any insurance providers. Our choice to opt out gives us the autonomy we need to provide the care that you deserve without allowing insurance to dictate what we can and can not do.
You will receive a superbill after every visit that can be submitted to your insurance if you choose.

Pre and Post-Natal Physical Therapy
Pregnancy is such a wonderful time but can also bring with it some aches and pains.
Consider for a moment that pregnancy and delivery are an injury sustained over a 10 month periods.
We choose to address the perinatal periods with a rehabilitative mindset. Our goal is to help you go into delivery as strong as possible and prepare you for the 4th trimester.
Prenatal physical therapy can address strength deficits, pain and educate on the use of assistive/postural tools to optimize movement and maintain balance.
