Grand Rapids, MN – Grand Itasca Clinic & Hospital is proud to announce that Cortney Orstad, PT, CLT has attained the American Physical Therapy Associations’ Certificate of Achievement in Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy (CAPP). The CAPP signifies Orstad’s dedication to women's health physical therapy and patients with pelvic floor disorders. Orstad is the only Physical Therapist in Northern Minnesota to have achieved this certificate.

“I am honored to be recognized by the American Physical Therapy Association for my training in pelvic floor therapy. I truly enjoy helping both women and men who are experiencing pelvic pain or incontinence take back their lives,” said Orstad.

Pelvic floor therapy benefits patients with a variety of medical conditions, including incontinence, pre and post-partum periods, pre and post-gynecological surgery, pelvic pain and coccyx (tailbone) pain. Often these conditions are due to childbirth, aging or illness, but can be improved with physical therapy as the patients strengthen and retrain the pelvic floor muscles. Diagnostic and treatment options range from pelvic floor exercise to manual therapy to the use of a biofeedback device, which measures the activity of your muscles.

If you have pelvic floor concerns, please talk to your primary care provider about a referral to see Cortney Orstad, PT, CLT.
