Nova Health Pelvic Health Therapy

Incontinence affects many women and men throughout our lives, whether due to fitness and sports activities, childbirth, hormonal changes or surgery. Pelvic pain that lasts more than 6 months is considered to be chronic and can affect quality of life.  We approach pelvic health needs by systematically and comprehensively looking at different body systems, including the urologic, gynecologic, gastrointestinal, neurologic and musculoskeletal to identify and treat the issue.
