Our Women’s Health Program at Inspire Health offers patient-specific individualized care in the areas of Pelvic Floor Dysfunction, Osteoporosis, Pre and Post Natal, Breast Cancer Rehabilitation, Acupuncture, and Nutrition.

Pelvic Floor Dysfunction

We have advanced training in pelvic pain management and can expertly treat pelvic floor tension disorders.

Your pelvic floor muscles help to support the bowel and bladder, function in child bearing, stabilize posture in all activities, and assist in sexual activities.  Problems with these muscles can result in pain, bowel and bladder difficulties, and strenuous intimate relationships.
