Too many women decide not to seek help for common conditions like urinary incontinence, believing that such issues are a natural and irreversible result of pregnancy or aging. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Women's Health & Pelvic Floor Rehabilitation
Northwestern Memorial partners with The Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago (RIC) to offer a women’s health rehabilitation program that provides treatment to restore optimal function of the pelvic floor muscles, pelvic joints and lower back.
Rehabilitation can help relieve pain with intercourse and other normal activities, eliminate incontinence and restore optimal function to muscles and joints, enabling wide-ranging physical improvements.
