HANCOCK – Portage Health is pleased to announce a new service to its women’s health offerings in the form of physical therapy. This powerful and natural rehabilitation service helps women of all ages heal and regain strength naturally using specially designed exercises and stretches.

WomensPT2“Physical therapy is a natural solution to problems such as urinary leakage, pelvic pressure, or pelvic or lower-back pain,” said Stephanie Peterson, DPT, PT.

Peterson is specially trained in women’s health physical therapy and will begin seeing patients starting in early July.

“My goal is to provide care in a comfortable, non-intimidating environment, so patients can live without the fear of leakage or pain with daily activities.” said Peterson. “I truly believe in this alternative and look forward to getting to work.”

These problems are especially common in women who have given birth, and appear more commonly through aging.

“You can do something about these problems,” Peterson said.

The service is the latest addition to the Portage Health Women’s Health team, which also offers surgical- and medication-based solutions for many of these same problems.

For more information on the service visit portagehealth.org/womensPT. Additional information on the Portage Health women’s health team can be found at portagehealth.org/women. Call 483-1050 to make an appointment today.
