  • Hysterectomy
  • Prolapse Repair or Sling Surgery
  • Endometriosis Excision
  • Abdominal Procedures- removal of tumors or other procedures

What can physical therapy do for me?

  • Reduce or Release Scar Tissue Adhesions

  • Improve blood flow and circulation to enhance recovery

Therapy is safe and appropriate after clearance from your medical provider with a written MD referral to physical therapy.
