Have you had a prostatectomy and now experience bladder issues? You're not alone. Urinary incontinence occurs in up to 8% of men post-prostatectomy.

The more common types of urinary incontinence include:
- Urge incontinence: bladder leakage that occurs when you feel a sudden urge to p*e or when you're walking to the bathroom.
- Stress incontinence: bladder leakage occurring during coughing, laughing, sneezing, transferring from sitting to standing and laying down, and/or during exercise.

It can be hard to identify the causes of your leakage alone. Call us today to set up your evaluation!

What causes pelvic floor tension?
There is no one defining cause for pelvic floor muscle tension. Different sources could be stress, holding your bowels/bladder for an extensive amount of time, chronic pelvic or GI conditions (i.e. endometriosis, interstitial cystitis, IBS), surgical trauma (including childbirth), abnormal posture, or previous history of pelvic girdle injuries (like falling on your tailbone).

Our Story

In 2001 Jennifer (Whaley) Shepherd, PT, CLT-LANA created a physical therapy center that catered to women. PT For Women provides general physical therapy care, but also specializes in unique health issues such as pelvic dysfunction, cancer rehab and lyphedema prevention/management. Together with the help of her associates the practice has continued to grow and expand its services to women throughout the region.

Recognizing the significant need for specialized physical therapy for men in our community - in September 2015 Physical Therapy For Women expanded to also include treatment for men in our newly designed Lymphedema and Pelvic Rehab Center. Men experiencing Lymphedema, urinary/bowel incontinence, or pelvic pain can now receive optimal physical therapy care in a private setting with dedicated male treatment rooms and gym area.

We provide customized treatment that centers around state-of-the-art, hands-on techniques and tailor-made exercise programs delivered by highly trained, compassionate physical therapists in a comfortable atmosphere. All of our therapists are fully licensed and specifically trained in their area of expertise. Our staff is frequently attending continuing education classes throughout the country to allow us to learn advancements in our field, and to bring that level of care to our community.

We’ll spend time with you discussing your injury or illness, reviewing your treatment options and really listening to your assessment of the problem. We will then create an effective treatment plan – one that’s precisely right for you – to relieve your pain and help you to achieve optimum health. What’s more, we will be there to listen to your concerns, encourage your successes and let you know how your therapy is progressing. Most importantly, our caring staff will be there for you throughout your recovery.
