Women's Physical Therapy

What is included in our women's physical therapy program?

At Ruidoso Physical Therapy clinic, our therapists are well-trained and fully equipped to provide the women in our lives with the means to a rapid recovery. We use a wide range of fitness equipment to support strength-building, balance-training and cardio-vascular conditioning throughout our process. Aside from our service in clinic, our patients learn exercises and stretches that they can do at home to assist in a speedy recovery through the hardships of birth and through the recovery process after a mastectomy.

 

1.

Pregnancy Physical Therapy

Back pain and pelvic pain are common during pregnancy. Therapy includes evaluation of the spine and pelvis, individualized exercise programs and the use of pregnancy belts to support the lower back and abdomen.

2.

Pelvic Pain

Pain in this area is often caused when scar tissue adheres to the pelvic walls or organ – scar tissue that results from gynecological surgeries such as Hysterectomy, C-section or procedures to treat Endometriosis.

3.

Breast Cancer/Mastectomy

Following a mastectomy, scar tissue can restrict a patient’s range of motion in the shoulder, and drain lines in the chest can cause lingering pain. Also, the removal of or damage to lymph nodes can cause ‘lymphedema.

 
4.

Osteoporosis

Weight-bearing exercises improve bone strength, and the clinic’s TurboSonic machine has been shown to improve bone density. We also use therapy to achieve corrections in posture, activity modification and rely on specific exercise programs to minimize the risk of fracture.
