Women's Health
Physical Therapy

The Women’s Health Program at Fauquier Health Outpatient Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation provides treatment for the specific health needs of women. Specialized pelvic floor physical therapists provide effective treatment for:

  • Back and pelvic pain at any time, and specifically during pregnancy and postpartum
  • Urinary, fecal/bowel incontinence at any time of life. May include urinary urgency, frequency and retention, or chronic constipation (female and male)
  • Pelvic pain diagnoses
  • Painful intercourse
  • Prolapse: uterine, cystocele, rectocele, and entercele
  • Coccydynia (tailbone pain)
  • Vulvovaginal disorders
  • Pudendal nerve entrapment

Cancer Recovery Services

Rehabilitation is also offered for the patient with breast cancer, from diagnosis through survivorship. Physical therapy can start after surgery as soon as drains are removed. If chemotherapy is started prior to surgery, a rehab specialist may be seen at the start of chemotherapy.

Cancer treatments can cause musculoskeletal or cardiovascular problems that could be addressed with rehabilitation. Difficulties might include limited range of motion, fatigue, weakness, stiffness, swelling and tissue tightness. All of these can be treated with therapy. Many of the above mentioned symptoms are seen with any cancer treatment, not just breast cancer, and rehabilitation treatment can assist in improving function.

Anyone who feel they may benefit from women’s health rehabilitation services should consult their physician to obtain an order for services. To make an appointment at Fauquier Health Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation, call 540-316-2680.
