Our commitment to physical therapy for pelvic health starts with a specialized group of Physical Therapists with training specifically for the treatment and education of pelvic health issues. As a patient, you will receive the best one-on-one care in a private setting to help get you back to enjoying the activities that you love. Phoenix Physical Therapists are experienced and caring clinicians you can trust.
We start with a physical therapy pelvic health evaluation, which includes discussing the history of the problem(s). experiences with pain, previous treatment, and functional limitations. We then assess muscle strength, posture, and movement patterns. After this information is collected, our therapists will develop a treatment plan and goals specifically to address your needs.

– Safe Secure Setting
– Comprehensive Evaluation
– Individualized Multi-modal Care
