How Does Capitol PT Help?

Capitol PT provides a very soothing and private environment for all pelvic health patients. Initially, your physio will examine abdominal muscles, neck, back, hip, SI joints and pubic symphasis to look for issues brought on by surgery, pregnancy or deconditioning. Each patient will begin a unique treatment plan; some common interventions include:

  • Gentle exercise
  • Stretching and strengthening
  • Education on proper posture
  • Manipulation and manual therapy
  • Specific exercises to improve pelvic floor function

It all begins with an appointment.

My husband was skeptical of my choice to use physical therapy to treat my back pain instead of medications. After seeing my results from working with the Capitol Physical Therapy team, my husband is a believer now too.
