The mission of the Women’s Health Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Program at Baylor is to promote excellence in the lifespan of women’s health across the continuum of care.
This program, which is currently being offered at the Baylor Institute for Rehabilitation Outpatient Clinic in Frisco and at the Baylor Outpatient Physical Medicine Center at the Baylor Tom Landry Center, offers specialized physical therapy that can improve lower back pain, bladder control and sexual dysfunction as well as decrease pelvic girdle pain, allowing you to regain quality of life. Whether you are pregnant and looking for a specific type of treatment or just dealing with physical pain and discomfort, the program offers trained physical therapists that can provide the treatment you are looking for.
“What is important to realize is these symptoms are treatable. If you are pregnant, going through post partum, or simply experiencing pain and discomfort, we can help,” said Wade McIntyre, clinical director at BIR Frisco as well as the Baylor Outpatient Physical Medicine Center at the Baylor Tom Landry Center.
“Our physical therapists are able to impact women of all ages,” said McIntyre. “From young female athletes at risk for ACL injuries, to women during pregnancy and post-partum, and into geriatrics where they may need intervention for urinary or fecal incontinence, osteoporosis or may just want to lead an active lifestyle.”
The program treats women with conditions such as: pelvic girdle pain in pregnancy and post partum, incontinence, osteoporosis, fibromyalgia, breast cancer and pelvic floor pain/interstitial cystitis.
Some treatment methods used by the therapists are:
The program also offers therapy during and after treatment for oncology diagnoses relating to decreased ROM, balance, coordination and general weakness.
