Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy

Whether you're an expecting Mother to be, recently gave birth, or you have health, wellness, and fitness goals, Gibson Body Wellness has your solution. Treatment for pelvic floor and orthopedic conditions.

At Gibson Body Wellness we believe in a full-body approach to pelvic floor rehab. During a pelvic floor evaluation, your PT will perform a whole body evaluation, including the pelvic floor, to address all your needs and develop a specific care plan designed just for you. Due to the complex nature of the pelvic floor and the other systems it interacts with, we make sure to rule out and address any other orthopedic conditions that may be contributing to your symptoms.

Our approach is unique in that we treat in a very integrative and holistic way, due to the nature of the integrative wellness clinic we are a part of here at Kokua Wellness. Other services here that may help optimize your healing and improve your overall quality of life include counseling services, massage therapy, doula services for labor, chiropractic care, and naturopathic medicine including acupuncture.
