Ohio State offers rehabilitation services especially designed for women.
Women's Health Rehabilitation at Ohio State’s Wexner Medical Center is dedicated to a woman's total well-being. We provide specialized care and physical therapy for health conditions unique to women. These include help with bladder control, pelvic pain, pregnancy-related issues and others conditions affected by menopause.

- Bladder control, including stress incontinence (urine leakage prompted by activity) and urge incontinence (strong, sudden need to urinate)
- Pelvic floor pain
- Pelvic organ prolapse/pelvic floor dysfunction (weakening of the pelvic floor and downward movement of the bladder and uterus)
- Pregnancy issues, before and after delivery
- Menopausal effects from changing hormones as menstruation stops
- Osteoporosis (change in bone tissue brought on by disease, medications or age)
- Fibromyalgia (a chronic condition involving widespread muscle and bone pain)
