UPDATE RE: COVID-19

Women’s Health Physical Therapy will be cancelling all face to face patient care appointments starting March 16, 2020 due to current situation surrounding Covid-19. As a business owner, medical provider, and ethical human being, I believe it is my duty to set a good example by respecting the governing bodies request that all non-essential face-to-face healthcare be temporarily postponed so that we can help “flatten the curve” and slow the spread of this virus. This is not to say that your care is not of the utmost importance to me; however, the service I provide is deemed non-essential to your immediate wellbeing, and your ability to function over the next few weeks. We will know more as the situation progresses, but currently the situation is quite fluid and government recommendations are changing by the minute. Likely these closures will realistically be in place for several weeks; however, we are taking it week to week, and will remain closed to in-office patient care until the shelter-in-place recommendation is lifted. That said, I have been working diligently behind the scenes to be able to offer a platform for telehealth options, as recommended by my governing bodies of The American Physical Therapy Association, and The California Physical Therapy Association. Rest assured this will be a HIPAA compliant platform and the security of your information will be maintained. Please do not hesitate to call with your questions, as our phone lines currently remain open, as well as our email at whptreddingca@gmail.com.

We thank you for understanding. We appreciate your time, your health and your trusting us with your patient care needs. We will be in touch as the situation unfolds.

Please be safe, wash your hands, and do the best you can to comply with “ social distancing” and “shelter in place” recommendations, as your long-term wellbeing is our greatest concern.

Quality Care for Better Quality of Life

We at WHPT offer an innovative approach in a private, supportive environment.

Millions of women suffer from pelvic floor dysfunction which can lead to urinary and/or bowel incontinence, chronic pelvic pain, sexual problems, and elimination disorders.

Pregnancy, childbirth, chronic constipation, chronic coughing, improper lifting, surgery, traumatic falls, cancer, and aging, can all contribute to impairments including pelvic floor muscle tension, connective tissue dysfunction, adhesions, muscle weakness and incoordination.

Pelvic floor therapy by a specially trained physical therapist can help!

Women's Health Physical Therapy, of Redding, California, was founded in an effort to address these very intimate issues in a discreet, educational and supportive environment, with a mission of providing the utmost in quality, evidenced-based, one-on-one care.

At Women's Health Physical Therapy, we understand the sensitive nature of these topics. We strive to offer expert care in a comfortable environment, with an emphasis on early patient education, to ease your fears and to maximize patient/therapist communication.

Not only will patients undergoing pelvic floor therapy receive individualized care, but they will also receive the latest research and treatment methods for the most advanced plan of care.

Whether it is for prevention or restoration services, WHPT is quality that women can trust.

Each patient receives a comprehensive evaluation, which may include postural analysis, observation and palpation of involved musculoskeletal structures, range of motion, tone and strength testing, and sensory and reflex testing. Evaluation procedures may also include vaginal dilator assessment, and/or intra-vaginal, intra-rectal, or peri-rectal sEMG biofeedback assessment. Once evaluation procedures are completed, an individualized plan of care and treatment goals are established. A detailed summary of your evaluation findings is provided to your referring provider, and routine progress reports are also completed.

Functional outcome questionnaires are routinely completed to establish starting baseline, to monitor progress, and to indicate readiness to transition to a safe home exercise program. It is our goal at WHPT to be respectful of your time, to communicate closely with other members of your healthcare team, and to assist you in early transition to an independent home exercise program with self-management strategies in place.

Physical Therapy is not something "done to you", but rather, "something we do together." A strong emphasis is placed upon empowering our patients by providing them with the knowledge and skills to understand and manage their condition long-term.

COVID-19, Telehealth and WHPT

If you would still like to connect with a specialized pelvic physical therapist, we have an awesome opportunity for you to do that virtually! Right from your home. We offer full support via telehealth that's HIPAA compliant and with secure video or audio options!

Telehealth is a perfect solution for new or returning patients if you:

  • Have questions about exercises or stretches to make sure you are doing them correctly or want to advance your program.
  • You are at a sticking point on your own and feel it would be helpful to ask questions.
  • You are concerned about what you can do at home to manage your pelvic pain symptoms and are looking for solid advice and a plan.
  • Want to connect about finding resources or how to best coordinate care with other healthcare providers in the near future.
  • Feel that you have increased leaking or prolapse symptoms and want guidance on how to improve this. There are so many strategies to implement at home.

We can help with all of this and much more, virtually. We have options for you if you are in the state of California.

Frequently asked questions:

How long are the virtual sessions? Up to 55 minutes each session.

What is the cost? The cost is the same as an in-clinic visit, $165 for initial evaluation for up to 55 minute session, and $140 for each follow up visit, for up to 55 minute session, payable at the time of service. If deemed appropriate, we will temporarily offer an abbreviated session for $70 for up to 25 minutes. We still offer courtesy billing to your insurance company; however, individual insurance companies may have different reimbursment rules re: telehealth. We highly encourage you to inquire with your insurance re: any specific limitations you may have with your individual plan re: telehealth for physical therapy, required referral, and/or specific codes or limitations that may apply to you. We also offer private pay option, as well as wellness visits.

What telehealth equipment do I need? A smart phone or computer with Wi-Fi access with video and audio.

How do I set up a telehealth appointment? Call WHPT at 530-242-1728 and speak with Lisa, our Office Manager, to schedule. You may also contact us at whptreddingca@gmail.com. If you are a current or returning patient - you likely only need to complete a telehealth consent form. If you are a new patient - we will have you fill out a consent form and new patient intake forms which can be found under the forms link.

Thanks for your patience and understanding during this time. We are doing our best to continue to deliver the best care possible during this state of change. If you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to reach out.

P.S. For many of you, this telehealth option may be an even better fit, so we plan to offer it indefinitely to those who may benefit from it. Feel free to reach out to us to ask if this would be appropriate for you.

We look forward to connecting with you virtually.
