Seeing a physical therapist for pelvic issues can be unsettling. Opening up about sometimes personal issues is difficult. Allowing someone to physically treat you for those concerns requires a great deal of trust.
Rosie Radford understands these concerns. An experienced doctor of physical therapy who specializes in pelvic health, she respects the personal nature of pelvic physical therapy. In addition, she understands the significant impact that pelvic conditions have on your quality of life.
Now Dr. Radford has established Northwest Wellness Group, an exclusive private physical therapy practice, to meet the needs of patients with these concerns.
This practice is the first specialty physical therapy clinic in Arlington Heights to focus specifically on urological and gynecological conditions. Previously, Dr. Radford treated patients at Northwest Community Hospital for 17 years where she expanded the pelvic floor program.
The new practice, located a few blocks west of Northwest Community Hospital, offers patients a private and comfortable atmosphere. It is a warm and inviting treatment space, where patients feel safe and confidentiality is a priority.
The aim at Northwest Wellness Group is to help patients gain function and improve their quality of life using a combination of advanced manual skills and traditional physical therapy approaches.
Northwest Wellness Group offers a wide variety of treatment modalities including biofeedback, ultrasound, electrical stimulation, and therapeutic exercise equipment, customized to each patient’s specific needs.
