As part of a multidisciplinary team, the physical therapist will work closely with the women’s health care provider to evaluate the musculoskeletal causes of pain and dysfunction and to determine the proper interventions to manage the physical effects associated with pelvic pain, sexual dysfunction, incontinence, urinary urgency and frequency, pregnancy or postpartum pain, and bowel dysfunction.
