Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy Now Offered At Bridgetown PT by Dr. Gwen Smith, PT, DPT
Gwen Smith is now offering Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy along with Pregnancy and Post-Partum Rehabilitation with a focus on safe exercise during pregnancy and return to exercise post-partum.
Gwen originally started as an orthopedic physical therapist but became interested in Pelvic Floor PT. After needing pelvic floor therapy herself before the birth of her daughter in 2020 Gwen began her journey to becoming a certified pelvic floor therapist. She is passionate about helping women who are dealing with incontinence issues, pelvic pain, pubic and SI joint pain as well as women who are not sure about how to safely exercise during pregnancy or return to exercise after birth. As a pelvic floor therapist Gwen will endeavor to restore proper function to your pelvic floor muscles, overcome these symptoms, and improve your overall health and wellness.
