Incontinence, diastasis recti, pain during sex… these are often talked about as somewhat “normal” postpartum conditions, but they don’t have to be with a pelvic floor therapists!
A seasoned physical therapist who specializes in pelvic health can help get you back to feeling your best, and thankfully there are many in Washington, DC, Maryland, and Northern Virginia serving families.
Here’s a list of our favorites:
ITR, specializing in pelvic health physical therapy, was started in 2001 because Jennifer Chu believed that each patient deserves to be treated in a caring and supportive environment while receiving quality one-on-one care and rehabilitation.
Jennifer and her staff at ITR come together with the same philosophy- that you deserve the best holistic approach to your health and wellness. ITR’s staff emphasizes open communication between you, your physical therapist and your physician with a special understanding of the issues affecting mamas before during and after their pregnancy. We also love helping men and children dealing with all types of pelvic floor issues.
Each treatment session lasts approximately an hour where you will receive the specialized treatment, personal attention and education needed to maximize your function, health and wellness. It is ITR’s goal to assist you in every step of your recovery process—supporting your return to a full healthy life.
Pelvic Floor Therapy is valuable and important for your body’s health, whether you’re a new mom or even 10 years postpartum. A Pelvic Floor Therapist can evaluate your health, then create and execute a plan to heal your body fully. They can even help with Diastasis Recti!
It’s a good idea to contact your insurance provider before making an appointment to see if they will reimburse your treatment.
