Pelvic Health For All Ages & Genders

CorePhysio is a community leader in innovative and research-based evaluation and treatment of pelvic pain and elimination disorders. From the moment you walk in the door, we commit to creating a care experience where you will feel safe and comfortable.  CorePhysio has three Bellingham clinic sites for pelvic health services for all genders and ages:

  • CorePhysio Fairhaven, 1514-12th Street, Suite 103
  • CorePhysio Squalicum, 3232 Squalicum Pkway within Pacific Northwest Urology Clinic
  • CorePhysio Grant, 1825 Grant Street Suite 100

During your initial visit, our specialized clinicians will listen to your concerns and goals.  With your permission and informed consent, they will perform a detailed evaluation of your pelvic floor, surrounding muscle groups, posture as well as spine and hip function. You’ll receive extensive education about the drivers of your condition and learn movement strategies. Together, you and your therapist will develop goals for treatment and a plan of care to address your individual needs.

Our experienced Pelvic Health specialty clinicians seek to understand each individual client’s need. Since 2004, we have been honored to participate in the care of our clients, respecting their individuality, gender identity, and sexual orientation.  Our care is always focused on the individual human being who has chosen us to help.  It is our goal to create a physical therapy experience where the dignity of the individual is protected, and our clients feel safe and comfortable.
