Personalized Pelvic Health Physical Therapy

Pelvic floor dysfunction (PFD) isn’t easy to talk about, but the conditions associated with it can affect all aspects of a woman’s physical and emotional health. We understand that it can take courage to ask for help with PFD conditions, and our team is here to provide the care you need.

At USC Verdugo Hills Hospital, our pelvic health physical therapists screen, diagnose and treat PFD to help improve your quality of life.

Our skilled clinicians provide one-on-one therapy sessions to treat various pelvic health–related conditions, including chronic pelvic pain, bowel control issues, urinary incontinence and sexual dysfunction.

We are passionate about delivering evidence-based pelvic health therapy and using the latest research to provide you with the best care and treatment options.
