Pelvic Health & Osteopractic Physical Therapy Services at Flow Physical Therapy and Wellness in The Woodlands, TX
At Flow Physical Therapy and Wellness, we take a unique and fresh approach as opposed to the traditional and outdated medical model, which may only allow one issue to be addressed per session or appointment.
The current medical model disregards that patients recovering from birth, recovering from an injury, or experiencing chronic pain issues rarely have just one problem and are lacking a holistic approach to address the root cause of all of your issues.
What makes us unique is that we are a true specialty clinic with both a Pelvic Health Specialist and a Board Certified Orthopedic & Fellowship-trained Specialist. Together, we have created a place for you to address all of your concerns without the headache of having to find different providers at different places for each concern.
Dr. Patrick and Dr. Melissa often team up and co-treat their patients so our patients can experience the benefits of both specialties during their care.
Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy
We specialize in working with women with pelvic health concerns, including bowel, bladder, and sexual dysfunction.

We also address pelvic floor dysfunction including prolapse, post-hysterectomy pain with sex, bladder leakage, and diastasis recti.
We can assist you with returning to exercise postpartum and post-laparascopic surgery.
And we can even address chronic bladder and pelvic conditions like interstitial cystitis and endometriosis.
We offer unique holistic approaches for menstrual cycle issues & hormone imbalances.
We can also prepare you for birth with our labor and delivery prep course and pregnancy pelvic floor conditions.
Orthopedic Physical Therapy
Orthopedic physical therapy can be life changing, especially when you work with a Physical Therapist who is a board-certified orthopedic clinical specialist and can differentially diagnose your symptoms. This will lead to uncovering the true root cause of your pain and real recovery. Our orthopedic Physical Therapist is Fellowship trained and earned a Diploma in Osteopractic Physical Therapy, meaning he is a true specialist in diagnosing the root cause of joint and muscle pain in a shorter amount of time.
Some examples of conditions we see in orthopedics include: chronic back pain & sciatica, disc bulges, disc herniations, neck & upper back pain, headaches, meniscus tears, rotator cuff tears, and tendonitis.
Osteopractic Physical Therapy
Revolutionary Osteopractic Physical Therapy is life changing, especially when you work with an Osteopractor who can differentially diagnose your concerns accurately by identifying the root cause of your pain.
Osteopractors have extensive specialty training in spinal manipulation, dry needling, extremity manipulation, non-thrust joint mobilization, cupping, scraping, body tempering, and differential diagnosis.
We thrive on providing an experience unlike any Physical Therapy experience you've had before.

your menstrual cycle & your pelvic health
