What is the Women’s Health Program?

Therapy In Motion provides women’s health physical therapy which offers special education and expertise in the evaluation and treatment of both acute and chronic conditions that specifically affect women. As experts in conservative treatment that include non-surgical and nonmedication solutions, our women’s health physical therapy experts can be an invaluable resource as a part of a wellrounded health care and wellness team.

Most women find it difficult to talk about personal female problems. Our highly trained staff offers women renewed hope to improve their personal symptoms in a confidential and private environment.

Benefits of Women’s Health Physical Therapy

A Therapy In Motion therapist can evaluate the condition of your pelvic floor muscles to determine if they are weak, tight, or in spasm. They can share solutions for functional problems associated with pelvic floor dysfunction and will work with your physician or other health care providers to support you in your rehabilitation.

What to Expect

Every patient has a unique health history, diagnosis and personal goals.  When you come for your first appointment, we will create a personalized treatment plan for you.

We work with most major insurance providers and do our best to help keep the paperwork pain-free.  If you’d like to confirm your insurance coverage, please let us know and we can verify when you schedule.  If your insurance provider requires a co-pay, we will ask for this payment at each visit.  We accept payments by cash, check or credit card.

When to arrive for physical therapy

When to Arrive

On average, a patient’s first visit lasts about an hour. We typically ask patients to arrive 15 minutes early to sign-in, complete paperwork and/or change clothes.

What to Bring for Physical Therapy

What to Bring

On your first visit, you’ll need to bring your physician referral or prescription (if needed), your insurance card, your primary registration forms, your ID or driver’s license and your co-payment (as applicable). If desired, you may bring a change of clothing.

How Physical Therapy Works

How it Works

During your first visit, your physical therapist will do an initial evaluation and discuss your plan of care.  The therapist uses this information to set goals for your continued treatment.  Physical therapy goals may include improved movement, strength, endurance and flexibility, as well as decreased pain.  Your subsequent visits will focus on treatment that is based on your diagnosis and individualized goals.
