My mission is to provide high quality pelvic health care. It is important to me to educate the community about pelvic health and to give each and every client the empowerment to take control of their health and wellness, and to give you space to talk about some of the tough (but important!) stuff.
Pelvic health physical therapy is physical therapy for pelvic dysfunction. This often impacts the pelvic floor muscles, which are a bowl of muscles inside your pelvis. These muscles are in charge of bowel and bladder function, sexual activity, support of pelvic organs, and stability of the hips and spine. Therefore, the diagnoses that are treated with pelvic floor physical therapy typically involve dysfunction with the above functions.
Although I specialize in pelvic health, I treat each patient as a whole person and not just a pelvis. I look at the spine, hips, and anywhere else in the body that may be contributing to your dysfunction so you can learn what’s causing your symptoms and get back to your life.
