Pelvic Health

  • Overview

    We are part of the Center for Pelvic Health at the University of Southern California (USC) which provides quality care for men and women with pelvic region dysfunction through both state-of-the-art clinical care and cutting-edge research. Unique to USC, our Center for Pelvic Health addresses both the physical and lifestyle issues associated with pelvic conditions with a patient-centered approach to your recovery.

    We specialize in physical therapy management of musculoskeletal dysfunctions pertaining to conditions affecting the urogenital system, colorectal system, and the neuro-musculo-skeletal system as a whole.

    Our goal is to help our patients overcome their specific pelvic health condition. We utilize physical therapy procedures for examination, evaluation and intervention that exhibit best practice standards with evidence of effectiveness through current research literature. Some of these procedures include manual therapy for joint, soft tissue and myofascial mobilization, therapeutic exercise instruction, sEMG biofeedback, behavioral training, and self-management strategies.
