WE TREAT THE WHOLE PERSON

We can help you in your health and healing journey with all types of orthopedic, neuromuscular, and musculoskeletal issues with your tissues. We've highlighted a few below:

Vestibular Dysfunction

The vestibular system is comprised of the brain, inner ear, vision & sensation, and they all work to maintain your body’s balance. If the system is damaged, the body’s balance is affected.

Coccyx (Tailbone)
Pain/Fracture

Many of the pelvic floor muscles attach to the coccyx. When those muscles are tight the coccyx gets pulled forward and can cause pain. Working on    those muscles both    internally and externally    can help alleviate pain.

Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo
(BPPV)

BPPV happens when the crystals of the inner ear break free and float into the canals. This can cause vertigo, nausea, and balance impairments. 

Bowel & Bladder Dysfunction (BBD)

Approximately 13 million Americans are incontinent; 85% of who are women. Bowel & bladder issues often come from nerve or muscle dysfunction and is highly treatable.

SI Joint Dysfunction

Sacroiliac joint dysfunction can cause lower back, hip, and leg pain. Causes of SI joint dysfunction include hypermobility, pregnancy, injury, and arthritis.

Hip & Low Back Pain

Having lower back pain is common. The pain can range in severity and affect your mobility as well as quality of life. 

Pelvic Pain

You are not crazy
One of the many jobs of the pelvis is to transfer load across it. Because of that mechanism, pelvic pain often travels from side to side or even front to back.


You are not alone
Research shows that up to 26.6% of the population experiences or has experienced pelvic pain. 

Physical Therapy Can Help
Physical therapy can be an excellent path to pain relief. The pelvis is made up of many muscles; when those muscles don't function properly, pain and dysfunction can occur.

Sexual Trauma

Sexual trauma affects millions of people. With stats that high why are victims of assault so alone during their journey? We are here to help. Sexual trauma often manifests as physical pain. The body keeps the score. We have therapists specially trained as members of an interdisciplinary team to help the body process that trauma. 

Ways We Can Help

Myofascial Release Therapy

By using specific hands-on techniques, trigger points and tight muscles can be mobilized to help alleviate pain.

Sex Counseling

Learning about your own anatomy, sexual response, and triggers can be an effective way to help regain your power.

Parkinson's Affects More Than Movement

Bladder Issues

30-40% of people with PD will experience bladder issues.

Fluctuations in dopamine and impeded nerve signals are often the culprit and can lead to symptoms such as urinary urgency, hesitancy, incomplete emptying, and increased night time urination. There are many treatments available to help with these symptoms including tibial nerve stimulation, myofascial release of the pelvic floor and bladder retraining. 

Constipation

PD can cause the nerves in the intestine to slow down in much the same way as it affects the brain and spinal cord. When movement in the intestines, known as motility, slows down, stool can start to back up in the colon. Most of the water we consume is absorbed in the colon. The longer stool sits there, there more water is absorbed and the harder the stool gets. This can lead to impaction, bloating, and abdominal discomfort. We can help! Bowel massage is a great way to help stimulate that movement!

MEN'S HEALTH

Men have pelvic floors too! Whether you are dealing with urinary incontinence after prostate surgery, pelvic pain from prostatitis, or erectile dysfunction; we are here to help!

You are not alone

  • 15% of men have chronic prostatitis 

  • 16% will experience pelvic pain

  • 34% will have urinary incontinence

  • 52% will experience erectile dysfunction at some point in their lifetime 

 

Erectile Dysfunction

There are many causes for erectile dysfunction including muscle weakness and nerve impingement. Pelvic PT can help improve nerve flow to the genitals through myofascial release and functional dry needling.

Hypermobility

Joint hypermobility means that some or all of a person's joints have an unusually large range of movement. You may have heard it referred as being double jointed. Joint hypermobility syndrome is when you have very flexible joints and it causes you pain. JHS is part of a spectrum of hypermobility disorders which includes Ehlers-Danlos syndrome.

 

People who have Ehlers-Danlos syndrome usually have overly flexible joints. Because the connective tissue that holds joints together is looser, your joints can move far past the normal range of motion and cause joint pain & dislocations

Physical Therapy for Hypermobility

Pain relief

Relieving pain where possible through the use of hot/cold packs, soft tissue work including gentle stretching & massage, and electrotherapy (Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS).

​Posture and motor control

Motor control exercise is a popular form of exercise that aims to restore co-ordinated and efficient use of the muscles that control and support the spine.

Muscle strengthening

Joint stability, muscle strength and improving dynamic muscle control should help to support and minimize trauma to joints.

External support

Support in the form of a brace or tape can be helpful to support a weakened joint to allow movement and also aid healing and restore balance.

Pregnancy

Being pregnant does not have to mean being in pain.

Pregnancy brings on many changes in the body. Your body is rapidly changing and with those changes oftentimes musculoskeletal issues arise. Hormones are often the culprit but pelvic physical therapy can play a significant role in helping you be pain-free.

Prenatal Yoga

Developing flexibility and mindfulness can be incredibly beneficial during pregnancy. Our therapists are skilled at safe prenatal yoga flows to help you move better and feel better.

Strength Training

Improving strength and endurance during pregnancy has a direct carry-over once your bundle of joy arrives. Staying fit during pregnancy can also help you through the delivery!

Pelvic Girdle Instability

Did you know that while you are nursing your body continues to release hormones that help your ligaments relax? This can lead to SI joint pain, pubic symphysis pain, and a feeling of unstable joints.

Urinary Incontinence

Leaking urine after you have a baby is a common issue. However, common doesn't equal normal. This is likely a muscle issue that PT can help resolve. 

Neck Pain

Nursing can be a rewarding bonding experience with your baby. But all of that looking down at your little one can take a tole on your neck and back. Is your bra giving you the right amount of support? How's your posture? Let us help!

Mommy Tummy

While you are pregnant your abdominal muscles are lengthened making them difficult to engage. After delivery those muscles don't always return to their previous strength. Muscle imbalance and core weakness can lead to a puffy middle and sore back.

You Have Options

Therapeutic Ultrasound

Ultrasound is a great way to aid in milk flow from clogged ducts. And it only takes about 15 minutes!

Constipation Management

Bowel massage and vagus nerve stimulation are great ways to help get things moving! 

Infrared Light Therapy

Infrared light focused on the scar tissue at the vulva or abdomen can help increase blood flow and aid in pain and tissue healing.
