Women's Rehabilitation Services

At Valley Health Rehabilitation Services our goal is to promote the health of women by providing therapy services. Many health problems, while not unique to women, are more common in women. There are treatment options to help you.

Services Provided

Our treatment plans are individualized to meet your needs. Your treatment may include education on women’s anatomy and normal function, strengthening and coordination of muscles, home exercise programs, manual therapy, biofeedback, bladder programs, balance and general conditioning.

Our services include the following:

  • Incontinence – Some women experience a sudden onset or gradual loss of bladder control due to childbirth, surgery, menopause or other factors. This may result in an involuntary loss of urine; however, there are a number of successful non-surgical treatments available such as education and exercise programs to improve muscle function and bladder control.
  • Osteoporosis – Osteoporosis is the gradual loss of bone density often accelerated by the onset of menopause. A physical therapist can develop an exercise program to help re-build bone density and teach effective ways to protect the body and avoid injury.
  • Pelvic Pain – Many women experience pain in the pelvic region. This can include pain or spasm of the vagina, pelvic or perineal region and pain with intercourse and/or menstruation. Each patient is unique, and an individualized treatment program will be designed following a thorough evaluation. Successful treatments include postural and therapeutic exercises, modalities and education.
  • Pre- and Post-Partum Pain – Many women experience aches and pains during or after pregnancy which limit their function. These may include back pain, aggravation of previous orthopedic problems and pain after Cesarean surgery. Therapists can provide instruction in exercise, positioning, supports and modalities to help relieve discomfort and help women maximize their function.
  • Diastasis Recti –A pregnancy related condition in which the rectus abdominis muscle of the abdomen separates. It can cause abdominal, low back or pelvic pain. Therapists can provide instruction on specific exercise to help close the separation as well as teaching you how to prevent the condition from worsening.
  • Pelvic Organ Prolapse – This occurs when an organ such as your bladder, uterus or rectum drops from its normal place in your abdomen and pushes against the wall of the vagina. This can lead to discomfort or pain. Therapist can provide you with education and exercises to strengthen the pelvic floor to improve the prolapse and/or prevent the condition from becoming worse.
  • Lymphedema* – Lymphedema develops with an abnormal accumulation of protein-rich fluid that results in swelling. Frequently, the swelling is seen in the arms or legs, but it can occur anywhere in the body. Therapists use Complete Decongestive Therapy (CDT) to treat lymphedema and provide instruction on exercise, skin care and how to maintain swelling reduction after therapy is completed. *Offered in Luray, Romney, Winchester and Woodstock only
