Our pelvic health specialists can help with many pelvic issues – including post-hysterectomy pain and discomfort

Did you know that 600,000 American women will undergo a hysterectomy this year? Or that nearly 20 million American women have had their uterus removed? By the age of 60, nearly one in every three women will have had a hysterectomy.

Whether the surgery was done due to cancer, uncontrollable bleeding, uncontrollable infection, or complications that occurred during pregnancy and delivery – you understand what it feels like when such an integral part of your internal structure is gone for good.

Pelvic organs that used to rely on the uterus for support start to sag, protrude and cause discomfort – and nearly a third of women will suffer in silence with incontinence, vaginal prolapse and pelvic pain. 

But it does not have to be that way! Pelvic Floor Therapy is a specialty area of physical therapy that can help women rebuild the strength in their pelvic muscles so they may better support pelvic organs without protrusion, sagging or discomfort. 

Our pelvic health specialists are caring, compassionate and experts in diagnosing and treating pelvic floor disorders. In this month Best of Wellness Connection video, Dr. Melissa Harkness explains what to expect with pelvic floor therapy. For more information, please visit our website at alliedpt.com, or call us for an evaluation – or email Dr. Melissa Harkness privately and confidentially with your questions at melissa@alliedpt.com.
