Physical Therapy for Women’s Health

Physical therapy for women’s health is a specialty that addresses conditions that occur in women of all ages. Women from DeKalb and Kendall County come to KishHealth Physical Therapy Centers to receive comprehensive treatment for a range of women’s health issues.

Fibromyalgia

A chronic condition that is often difficult to diagnose, fibromyalgia affects almost five million people in the United States, and 80% to 90% are women. Fibromyalgia is usually diagnosed in adults between the ages of 30 and 50, but the symptoms—such as widespread chronic pain and fatigue—can show up earlier. Although there is currently no definitive cure, there are treatments that can help.

KishHealth System physical therapists help women with fibromyalgia:

  • Understand and manage their pain
  • Reduce their fatigue
  • Improve their function and quality of life

Pregnancy and Postpartum

Because of the anatomical and physiological changes that occur in a pregnant woman’s body, pregnancy and childbirth increase the risk of pelvic strain and low back pain.

KishHealth physical therapists help women with pelvic issues before and after childbirth:

  • Restore strength to core muscles and manage pain
  • Gradually return to physical activity and fitness
  • Learn exercises that will make delivery easier
  • Learn proper lifting and body mechanics
