What does a Women’s Health Treatment Plan look like?
At your first appointment, there will be a comprehensive physical examination and a review of your medical history. This will allow your physical therapist to determine the best treatment plan for you. Our services at Motion RX include:
- Education (patient handouts, detailed information about your condition to take home).
- Bladder training (surrounding your bladder schedule).
- Neuro retraining (incorporating pelvic floor muscle activation in simulated daily activities).
- Retraining the pelvic floor muscles.
- And much more!
During pregnancy, there are many changes. Pain can be caused by joint hypermobility, posture changes, weakness, swelling, or other factors. Problems can also be caused by prolonged labor, cesarean section, or large episiotomies. A Women’s Health Physical Therapist can help treat all of these conditions to help make pregnancy less painful.
Pelvic Floor Rehabilitation in Jacksonville
The muscles of the pelvic floor form a sling that runs from the pubic bone down to the tailbone. As with all muscles, the pelvic floor muscles can become weaker or more rigid. They may be damaged by surgery, prolonged labor, or other trauma.
Bladder symptoms can be caused by the closeness and function of the pelvic floor muscles. These symptoms can cause problems in your daily life, and they can be embarrassing or painful to manage.
A pelvic floor rehabilitation specialist is a physical therapist who specializes exclusively in women’s physical therapy.
Your therapist will talk to you during your first visit about your symptoms. An evaluation will include muscle strength, endurance, intact sensation, and myofascial trigger point testing. This may include both external and internal evaluations. Based on your symptoms and your evaluation, your treatment could include behavior modification activities, exercises, and/or pain management methods.

“Kate and Motion RX did a great job strengthening my brother’s ankle after a very bad ligament sprain. He had experienced limiting, debilitating pain for months playing his sports but now he’s back to normal. Thank you Kate!!! 👍👍”
“From my very first interaction with the Motion RX team, I felt like I was in good hands. I felt very welcome the whole time I was there! Dr. Peter gave me a great evaluation, and explained everything in detail, and set me up with realistic expectations on my recovery. I am in a great spot with my knee injury thanks to Dr. Peter and Motion RX! Highly recommended!”
