“Urinary incontinence” is a technical term for leaking urine by accident. It is a common condition in more elderly demographics, especially elderly women, although it can happen to anyone for a number of reasons. Fortunately, urinary incontinence can be controlled and/or cured with the help of physical therapy. 

If you have been struggling with urinary incontinence and you are looking for help, contact TherapyWorks today to schedule an appointment with one of our dedicated Lawrence, KS physical therapists.

Pelvic pain can occur for a number of reasons. This type of pain 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.

In many cases, our treatment methods can help provide relief and recovery for problems that patients have been facing for years. If your pelvic pain is limiting you, contact TherapyWorks today to begin your path toward long-lasting relief!

Uterine prolapse occurs when pelvic floor muscles and ligaments stretch and weaken and no longer provide enough support for the uterus. As a result, the uterus slips down into or protrudes out of the vagina.

Causes of this include:

  • Pregnancy/childbirths with normal or complicated delivery through the vagina
  • Weakness in the pelvic muscles with advancing age
  • Weakening and loss of tissue tone after menopause and loss of natural estrogen
  • Conditions leading to increased pressure in the abdomen
  • Being overweight or obese with its additional strain on pelvic muscles
  • Major surgery in the pelvic area leading to loss of external support
  • And many more

If you are experiencing uterine prolapse, contact TherapyWorks today to schedule an appointment with one of our dedicated Lawrence, KS physical therapists.

Diastasis Recti is a gap in between your right and left abdominal wall muscles that can result in a rounded, protruding belly “pooch.” It is commonly seen in women over the age of thirty-five, women who have had multiple pregnancies, and women who delivered a high birth weight baby.
