Living with endometriosis can leave you feeling frustrated and uncomfortable
Even getting a diagnosis can be a long and difficult journey—but finding effective symptom relief doesn't have to be. The thing is, many people don't think about seeking out physical therapy for endometriosis because they simply don't realize how much it can help!
If you live in Washington D.C. and have endometriosis, we encourage you to reach out to District Performance & Physio. Our experienced staff offers personalized care that can make a meaningful difference in your level of comfort and quality of life.
Endometriosis is more common than you think
The United States Office on Women's Health estimates that endometriosis (or "endo") affects as many as 11% of women of childbearing age.
This condition develops when tissues that are similar to the endometrium (inner lining of the uterus) grow outside of the uterus on other areas of the body, including the ovaries, fallopian tubes, cervix, vagina, bladder, and bowels.
Endo is most common in women in their 30s and 40s. It also seems more likely in people who have never been pregnant or have long periods (>7 days), short menstrual cycles (<27 days), or a family history of endometriosis.
Right now, the medical and scientific communities—along with millions of women just like you or your loved one—are searching for a cure. Until we find one, it's important to offer women with endometriosis effective and affordable symptomatic relief. Pelvic floor physical therapy can help.
Did you know physical therapy benefits women with endometriosis?
Pelvic floor physical therapy may help alleviate signs and symptoms of endometriosis, including:
Super painful periods
Chronic low back pain and pelvic pain
Vaginal pain on insertion (including during sex or while using a tampon)
Painful bowel movements
Bleeding or spotting between periods
Digestive issues like bloating, diarrhea, and constipation
These symptoms can be tough to talk about. At District Performance & Physio, it's our pledge to provide a private, compassionate, and soothing environment for you to discuss your concerns with an experienced pelvic floor PT.
