Centrality Physical Therapy & Wellness is a physical therapy clinic specializing in pelvic floor physical therapy and wellness for all individuals from pediatrics into adulthood in New Canaan. The Pelvic Health Rehab Specialists at Centrality Wellness blend orthopedics and specialty training in pelvic floor conditions to address the “common but not optimal” conditions many individuals feel they must “just live with.” Common conditions that are improved with pelvic rehab treatment include urinary or fecal leakage (think coughing, sneezing, laughing, exercising, etc.), constipation (pain with pooping, hemorrhoids, fissures), pelvic pain (pain with sitting, pain with sex, inability to wear tampons), hip or low back pain, birth preparation, or changes due to pregnancy or postpartum (DRA, SPD), and childhood constipation/stool withholding, urgency, recurrent UTIs, or bed wetting. They aim to create space for you to learn about your body, heal, and get you back to meeting your goals and living your best life. No one should live with what we call “normal” when there is help. Both in-person and virtual options are available.
