Bayhealth Welcomes New Physical Therapist

AndersonBayhealth Medical Center

Bayhealth is pleased to welcome a physical therapist with a special interest in women’s health and pre/post-natal physical therapy, a new service offered at both Kent General and Milford Memorial.

Megan Anderson, DPT, of Dover received her Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Indiana University in 2009. After beginning her practice in Seattle, Wash., she was introduced to pelvic floor rehab and pre/post natal PT by a colleague. She has since completed focused coursework through the Herman and Wallace Institute including treatment of diagnoses such as dyspareunia (pelvic pain or pain during intercourse), stress and urge incontinence, pudendal neuralgia, and many others. She is also trained in biofeedback for neuromuscular re-education of the pelvic floor.

“A lot of women simply accept a certain amount of leakage as a normal part of aging, and it’s not,” she stressed. “Incontinence can be improved with strengthening exercises and muscle education. Additionally, many women have lived with pain during intercourse when they don’t have to. Any woman who is unable to tolerate a typical ob/gyn annual exam can learn strategies to overcome the pain.”

Treatment for incontinence, for example, includes behavioral training to overcome urgency and to normalize bladder function. Since the therapy is so specialized, Anderson typically sees patients one to two times a week for several weeks, then at intervals throughout the next few months to ensure patients are doing their exercises correctly and that their muscles are supporting them in their daily lives.

Patients may see their family physician to request a prescription for this specialized physical therapy, so Anderson may evaluate their condition and create a treatment plan. For more information on physical therapy services, please visit www.bayhealth.org.
