This program will provide affirming care to all individuals based on their unique needs and goals. Our services include pelvic and orthopedic physical therapy, including pre- and post-operative care for gender-affirming surgeries.
The potential benefits of therapy before and after surgery include:
- Bowel and bladder function
- Reduce pain and appearance of scar tissue
- Reduce pelvic pain
- Improve sexual function
- Maintain healthy dilation
Our therapists are trained in comprehensive evaluation and treatment of patients experiencing pain in their pelvis, genitalia, hips, abdomen, chest and lower back, as well as addressing conditions such as constipation, incontinence and overactive bladder.
The LGBTQ+ Pelvic Health Program will assist individuals in meeting their functional goals by providing best-practice care within a culturally competent environment.
