I have been taking my 10 year old son after a knee injury during gymnastices. Though not specialised in sports therapy, the therapist was able to work with my son healing him in just 2 sessions.
Therapy Fit is a warm friendly professional environment. The doctor was knowledgable and committed to helping me reach my goal.
I did not have a lot of happiness in my life when i first came here. The pain and limitations were so bad. It felt as though i was going to have learn pain management.

Excellent service.nice therapists.overall satisfied with the theraphy sessions undergone here.will definetly recommend this place.
Have been taking my mother in law for her knee pain since past 4 weeks, she's been experiencing a dramatic difference. We had tried therapy before but nothing worked as great before.
Very detailed and knowledgable personnel. First thing is they listen and assess your condition accurately. So the treatment is very effective. I had relief within the 1st week.
Physical therapy here was very beneficial. i will recommend this to anyone who needs to get better from chronic pain. Therapists are very nice and loving.
I am happy to write that I received outstanding service at this practice and would highly recommend for anyone looking for physical therapy. The therapist is very thorough and patient.
I received outstanding, courteous and professional care for my legs and right shoulder. The progressions of flexibility, strength and balance not only got me back to golf sooner, but also healthier.
Treating Incontinence Issues with Physical Therapy
A physical therapist is highly skilled in evaluating and treating various musculoskeletal and neurological conditions affecting the body. This profession focuses on assessing any underlying factors, such as strength, neuromuscular control, balance, coordination, skeletal alignment, and endurance, which may be contributing to impaired functional mobility, activity, participation, and quality of life.
Of course, most people only seek physical therapy when they’re suffering from a common injury or condition, such as whiplash, tendinitis, low back pain, or ligament sprains. Perhaps lesser known is that chronic pelvic pain and dysfunction, especially issues with incontinence, can respond positively to physical therapy intervention.
Urinary incontinence has a reputation of being something that only little old ladies have. However, many young people experience urinary incontinence, as well. More women are affected by urinary incontinence than men; however, it is common for men to experience it after certain procedures, such as prostate surgery. Fortunately, there are many treatments for urinary incontinence.
There are two main types of incontinence: stress incontinence and urge incontinence. Stress incontinence is caused when one experiences a urine leak due to pressure on the bladder. For example, stress incontinence can occur when exercising, lifting heavy objects, laughing, coughing, or sneezing. This is the most common type of bladder control problem in younger to middle-aged women, and it may occur around the time of menopause.
Urge incontinence is caused when there is a sudden and emergent need to urinate. Someone experiencing urge incontinence may not have enough time to make it to the toilet before leakage occurs. This type of bladder control problems is usually a result of diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, or stroke.
Common conditions that may cause urinary incontinence include:
- Weak bladder muscles
- Overactive bladder muscles
- Damaged bladder nerves, typically from diseases such as diabetes, multiple sclerosis, or Parkinson’s
- Blockage from an enlarged prostate
- Difficulty getting to the bathroom in time, due to diseases such as arthritis
- Damaged pelvic floor nerves, due to injury or surgery
- Pelvic organ prolapse
- Benign prostate hyperplasia
Some people with urinary incontinence may find relief by making simple lifestyle changes. If you have stress incontinence, in which you leak urine when you cough, sneeze, or laugh, your physical therapist may advise you to limit how much you drink. If you have urge incontinence, in which you get a sudden urge to urinate and can’t always make it to the bathroom in time, your physical therapist may advise you to avoid spicy foods, caffeine, and carbonated drinks, as they can irritate the bladder and worsen the issue.
Exercises to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles, known as Kegels, can sometimes help people who are living with incontinence. Kegels are combined with biofeedback techniques, in order to determine if the exercises are being performed properly. For urge incontinence, bladder retraining can also help. This involves gradually increasing the interval time between trips to the bathroom, working up to longer and longer intervals between bathroom stops.
Some other common treatments for incontinence may include, but are not limited to:
- Additional pelvic floor strengthening exercises.
- Urge suppression strategies.
- Electrical stimulation.
- Hip and core strengthening.
