Morehead City, NC (PRWEB) February 21, 2012
In 2011 the National Pain Foundation reports that “12-20% of women have chronic pelvic pain, and up to 33% of women will have pelvic pain during their lifetime.” The same report cites that physical therapy is an effective treatment for chronic pelvic pain. A Physical Therapist with advanced training is able to work with patients to strengthen the pelvic floor which reduces pressure and pain in the pelvic area, helps with constipation and incontinence, provides healthy support for pelvic organs, and increasing core stability.
“I continue to be amazed with the outcomes that women are able to achieve with these techniques,” states Jolene Faught, BreakThrough Physical Therapist and Women’s Health Specialist. “Many of my patients have seen more than 15 health care providers, have undergone trials with multiple medications, and some surgery with no avail. I want every woman to know that there can be relief from pain, without surgery, drugs or side effects.”
The Mayo Clinic website defines chronic pelvic pain in women as pain in the pelvic region lasting six months or longer. The pain can be severe and steady, intermittent, dull and aching, or can feel like sharp pains and cramping. Women with pelvic pain can also experience pain during intercourse, pain while using the restroom, or pain while sitting and standing.
Jolene has more than eleven years of experience treating conditions that affect women’s health such as urinary incontinence, pelvic pain, pregnancy/ post partum related pelvic floor and back problems, osteoporosis, post-mastectomy care, and fitness and wellness. During the past four years, Jolene has focused almost exclusively on pelvic rehabilitation, earning certification from the accredited Herman and Wallace Pelvic Rehab Institute on the issues of incontinence and pelvic pain.
“Jolene’s specialty with women’s concerns was perfect for my particular needs!” states a recent patient of Jolene’s. “I’m seeing and feeling results…”
