#1 Choice For Physical Therapy in Louisville, KY.

  • Do you need help with Pelvic Pain or Urinary Incontinence?
  • Do you "leak" when coughing, sneezing, laughing, or exercising?
  • Do you suffer from pain during sex, pain with sitting, pain with tampons, and or challenges emptying your bladder?
  • Or are you Pregnant, planning to get pregnant, or just had a baby?

At ProActive Physical Therapy And Wellness, we work with women in the Louisville community at all stages of the life cycle to help you get to know your body better. We want to help you understand that some things you have been told are incorrect.

Society often blames women’s health issues on "aging" or "just part of having children." But this couldn't be further from the truth. You don’t have to put up with pelvic pain, incontinence, or pain during intercourse – or all those niggling issues during pregnancy and postpartum. 

”We Can Help."

Why We Started The Pelvic Floor Rehab Program

We Interviewed Hundreds of Women To Get Their Perspective On Past Experiences With Healthcare Providers

Here are some of their statements:

I’m tired of going to the Doctor and feeling like I’m being rushed without my questions being fully answered.”

"I hate feeling like I have never had a practitioner take the time to truly understand MY specific wants, needs, values, and concerns."

I get anxiety when putting on those dreaded paper gowns and covering myself only with a piece of paper.”

"I'm tired of feeling like I don't have a choice about my health and being told what to do without an explanation?"

I'm tired of being told to do "Kegels" without correctly explaining how to do them.

I AM READY TO TAKE MY HEALTH BACK INTO MY OWN HANDS”

Women told us that talking about sensitive topics can be nerve-wracking. So, we set out to change that and created a welcoming environment where we take the time to listen and understand "you."

No more leaving the exam room feeling like you weren't fully heard or understood. No more paper gowns and paper sheets. That stops now. Instead, we take a “woman first, patient second” approach where we genuinely take the time to truly understand you as a woman – not a statistic or a scientific study.

Then, we provide the tools and education to empower you to make the best decisions about your pelvic health.

The Truth

A common phrase we often hear is, "I thought with time and rest my pelvic pain, vaginal pain, tailbone pain, pain with sitting on hard services, pain with intercourse, bladder spasms would magically go away on this own." But most women become discouraged and frustrated because their pelvic pain worsens. It starts affecting their quality of life mood, and not to mention their relationship with their partner. They're afraid to engage in activities that cause pain, so they accept it as part of their "new life."

Does that sound like you?

If it does, let me tell you we CAN address your pain and prevent it from returning.

You haven’t found the relief you seek because everyone has been treating the "symptoms" rather than getting to the root cause of the problem.

Pain arises when the demand for a structure exceeds its ability to perform a specific task. To get the long-lasting results you seek, you must first understand that the pelvic region is a complex area of your body because many structures and muscles work together. If one or more of these structures or muscles fail to do their job, it can lead to overcompensation resulting in pain and discomfort.

When addressing the pelvic region, you must also examine the muscles and structures in adjacent areas (hip, abdomen, and low back) to ensure they can adequately perform their job. The most important thing to remember is that although pelvic pain is common, you don’t have to accept it for the rest of your life.
