Transgender Pelvic Health

LGBTQ Transgender Health

Transgender Pelvic Health

Grace Physical Therapy & Pelvic Health strives to be a welcoming, safe, respectful place for all. A 2015 survey by the National Center for Transgender Equality found that 33% of individuals who saw a health care provider had at least one negative experience related to being transgender, which included being refused treatment, verbal harassment, physical or sexual assault, and having to teach the provider about transgender people in order to get appropriate care. In addition, 23% of respondents stated they did not see a doctor when they needed to because of fear of being mistreated as a transgender person.   

Our Team at Grace PT is passionate about access to compassionate and experienced care for those who may face significant barriers to health care. We strive to be the ‘go-to’ place for LGBTQIA+ individuals in the Triangle who require assistance with pelvic health or orthopedic issues. For those who are not local, we offer a Telehealth program. 

In addition to any of the conditions outlined on our website, transgender individuals may experience unique healthcare concerns related to pelvic and orthopedic health. These may include:

  • Gender Affirmation Surgeries
  • Side effects of binding, including back pain, chest pain, poor posture, shoulder pain, numbness, and scarring
  • Urinary dysfunction associated with packing and/or tucking
  • Pelvic pain, changes in walking pattern,  and muscle tension in the legs associated with packing and/or tucking
  • Tucking leading to increased risk for developing urinary tract infections due to urethral opening being placed close to anus, as well as compression of the urethra leading to urinary dysfunction.
  • Urinary retention or other issues related to stand-to-pee devices

One of our experienced pelvic therapists can help with any of these issues.
