Women's Health Program
Our teams of physicians, psychologists, physical and occupational therapists, nutritionists and other specialists throughout the Spaulding Rehabilitation Network will collaborate with you to create a personalized, comprehensive treatment program for a variety of conditions, including:
Osteoporosis and Perimenopausal Symptoms – Our program provides specifically designed exercises and activity training to improve strength, balance and overall function in a safe manner. Education on nutrition and lifestyle changes to help prevent and treat osteoporosis is also provided.
Pregnancy and Postpartum-Related Pain Rehabilitation – We offer individualized treatment for the pregnant or postpartum woman. Treatments include exercise, manual therapy, body mechanics training, bracing and education designed to reduce pain and improve function.
Women’s Health Pelvic Pain – Pain in the pelvic region can limit normal function, including sexual intercourse. Assessment of the cause will be done by a physical therapist. Treatment may then consist of manual therapy, stretching, strengthening and education about lifestyle changes.
Urinary Incontinence – Incontinence is the involuntary loss of urine significant enough to cause a problem in daily activities. Our program includes noninvasive treatments such as exercise biofeedback and lifestyle management for urinary incontinence.
Breast Cancer Rehabilitation/RESTORE Program – Our interdisciplinary team of specially trained clinicians provides a supportive environment in which breast cancer patients in all stages of treatment improve their ability to function and their quality of life through rehabilitation strategies.
Approach to Care
At Spaulding Rehabilitation Network Outpatient Centers, we’re committed to providing specialized, interdisciplinary services that address the unique medical, emotional and lifestyle needs of women. Our primary goal is to help you achieve optimal levels of health, fitness, and well-being. Spaulding Network’s approach to care is individualized to meet your needs. We review your past medical history, diagnostic testing and neurological and gynecological testing, establishing functional goals and realistic timelines for your recovery.
Often the primary care physician is consulted. Communication between Spaulding and the physician are vital as the your plan of care, progression of treatment and any changes in status are discussed with the referring clinician.
An individualized plan of care for you is created which may include manual techniques, therapeutic exercise, neuromuscular reeducation, biofeedback, bracing, stability training, body mechanics training, and postural re-education and bladder retraining.
Our team members, consisting of occupational and physical therapists, working on the Women’s Health program are seasoned clinicians with either certifications or continuing education in this specialty. Many of these team members have over 10 years experience in women’s health issues.
