Day Kimball Healthcare Announces New Physical Therapy Service for Women's Health

April 19, 2017

Day Kimball Healthcare’s Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation division is now offering a specialized physical therapy service tailored especially to women’s health, focused on alleviating the symptoms of pelvic floor dysfunction.


The pelvic floor includes a group of muscles, tissues and ligaments that support the organs in the pelvis, including the uterus, bladder and rectum. Certain conditions, injuries, childbirth and other factors can cause the muscles of the pelvic floor to not work properly.

Symptoms of pelvic floor dysfunction may include urinary urgency, hesitancy, frequency or incontinence; vulvar pain; pelvic floor pain; chronic pelvic pain; and other pain disorders including abdominal pain, tailbone pain, pain with sexual activity, nerve pain syndromes, interstitial cystitis/painful bladder syndrome, and pain or weakness before or after childbirth.

Members of the physical therapy staff at the Day Kimball Healthcare Center in Danielson have received specialized training in physical therapy methods to effectively treat and alleviate these symptoms.

Women affected by symptoms of pelvic floor dysfunction can ask their gynecologist or primary care provider for a referral to the Day Kimball Healthcare Physical Medicine office in Danielson. The office is located at 55 Green Hollow Road and can be reached by phone at (860) 779-0252.
