Georgia Obstetrics and Gynecology has hired Chris Norton-Schlehr, a Pelvic Physical Therapist. Ms. Norton-Schlehr has specialized in Pelvic Floor Therapy for seven years. Pelvic Floor issues are covered by most insurance.
Symptoms of Pelvic Floor issues include:
* Sudden urge or frequently need to empty your bladder
* Leak when you laugh, cough or jump
* Pain with intercourse
* Pressure at the pelive region from prolapse
* Chronic constipation
* Urgent need for a bowel movement
* Light fecal leakage
Over 40% of women suffer from symptoms due to a dysfunctional pelvic floor. Pelvic Floor Therapy rehabilitates the pelvic muscle through pelvic muscle exercises, electrical stimulation, life time maintenance plan, and lifestyle modification without surgical treatment. Results can be as soon as 3-4 weeks after therapy begins.
Georgia OBGYN has two offices, one near Northside Hospital, at 578 Peachtree Dunwoody Rd, and the other in Alpharetta GA, inside the North Crescent Medical Center Building. For more information about help with Pelvic Floor issues, contact Georgia Obstetrics and Gynecology at 404-256-2943.
