Women’s Health Programs
The Women’s Health Therapists at Mercy understand the many physical and emotional issues women face as their bodies change throughout life. While the stages and changes of the female body are natural, there may be times when a woman needs extra help to cope with some of these changes. The problems associated with pregnancy and women’s health can be alleviated or improved with physical therapy. Our specially trained licensed Physical Therapists help women learn to be proactive about taking care of themselves and finding relief from these chronic health problems. Physical therapists are musculoskeletal experts trained to identify and work with movement dysfunction.
Mercy is a leader in developing comprehensive women’s health services. With a certified women’s health specialist on staff, our Women’s Health Physical Medicine Program receives referrals from across the area, including the University of Michigan and the Cleveland Clinic.
Our therapy centers provide evaluations by a female therapist in private room settings. Treatment plans are then individually designed. These physical therapy services usually require six to eight sessions.
The friendly and knowledgeable staff is prepared to assist today’s woman with all aspects of her medical needs in any stage of her life. We look forward to assisting you in leading a more healthy and active lifestyle.
