Physical therapy can ease a number of women’s and men’s health and pelvic floor dysfunctions that occur during any life stage. At Cherry Creek Wellness Center our specially trained pelvic floor physical therapists thoroughly assess each person’s muscle function, tone, and strength as well as postural alignment, pelvic positioning, and nerve function.
Our pelvic floor physical therapists use manipulation and joint mobilizations, soft-tissue work, biofeedback, muscle re-education, and home programs for quicker return of normal function. Patient-specific programs are designed to eliminate pain and return people to their normal lives.

Cherry Creek Wellness Center has specially trained Pelvic Floor Physical Therapists in our Wheat Ridge and Stapleton locations. Our therapists have taken specialty course work and been specifically trained to treat people with pelvic floor dysfunctions and women who are pregnant or postpartum. These classes require the therapist to pass a rigorous test at the end of each level that targets both therapist knowledge and manual skill. Several of our therapists are also qualified in trigger-point dry needling, an advanced technique that requires further training. Our Pelvic Floor Physical Therapists have committed to the specialty course work and the advancement of their practice. Our therapists have a passion for working with people who have pelvic floor dysfunction and helping them take back control of their life.
