Women’s Health Program

Incontinence, loss of vaginal strength and pelvic pain are all symptoms of pelvic floor dysfunction, a condition that can affect women of all ages. Why suffer in silence?

If you have been diagnosed with pelvic floor dysfunction and are considering treatment, speak with your physician about enrolling in the Women’s Health Program at Ahlbin Rehabilition Centers. This comprehensive program provides an individual evaluation and physical therapy for female pelvic floor dysfunction through treatments that can increase strength, decrease pain and improve function. This program is also beneficial for women who experience pelvic floor pain, urinary incontinence, low back pain/sacroiliac dysfunction, prenatal/postpartum pain and weakness, hysterectomy complications (pre- and post-surgery) and organ prolapse (pre- and post-surgery).

Most health insurance plans cover the cost of this program. To participate, you must be referred by your physician (urologist, urogynecologist, OB/GYN or primary care physician), have authorization from your insurance plan and be pre-screened by your OB/ GYN (or one recommended by Ahlbin Rehabilitation Centers). Held at Ahlbin Rehabilitation Centers, 3585 Main Street, Stratford. For more information, please call 203-380-4672.
