What Patients Are Saying About Dynamic Physical Therapy Women's Health Center

​"I am experiencing less pain and improved bladder control, enabling me to be more active and have improved sleep thanks to Dynamic Women's Health Center"

 

 "The physical therapists at Dynamic promote the well-being and health of women by targeting their specific needs relating to their core and pelvic floor, while maintaining a high level of professionalism and putting the comfort of the patient first"

 

“Dynamic Physical Therapy Women’s Health Program, was extremely helpful to me in providing bladder retraining and pelvic floor therapy. They were very caring, professional and sensitive to my individual needs and symptoms. The therapist provided a comprehensive program of assessment, therapy, instruction, and education with follow up recommendations and a home treatment protocol for continued success. After years of doing kegels without much success in strengthening, I learned how to do these correctly with significant improvement. My bladder and pelvic symptoms are much improved and I now have the tools to continue self care at home. These successes have greatly increased my sense of physical well-being and I highly recommend this program.”

 

"When I first came to Dynamic, I was suffering with extreme pelvic pain for years and could hardly even get out of bed. I was very unsure of what to expect but was willing to try anything, thank God I did because Michelle and her staff truly went above and beyond for me! I was educated on my problem and they made a somewhat awkward situation completely comfortable. I cannot thank everyone enough for helping me get back to 100% and for truly making everything so easy and stress free! I would recommend Dynamic to everyone!"
