Pain and additional issues surrounding the pelvic floor can occur for a number of reasons. It can be limiting and, for some people, even a bit embarrassing. It can hinder your daily life and prevent you from doing some of your daily tasks or activities you love.
While our Women’s Health Program primarily focuses on women, any woman or man living with pelvic problems can benefit from our services. Through our targeted programs, we can help reduce or eliminate the pain and symptoms you are experiencing. Contact Carolina Prime Physical Therapy today to schedule your consultation!
