What We Treat

Bladder Function

Bladder dysfunction is one of the most commonly treated pelvic floor issues.  In fact, research links incontinence to an overall decreased quality of life.  Pelvic floor physical therapy is a powerful tool in treating many bladder issues.

  • Stress incontinence
  • Urgency/frequency
  • Interstitial Cystitis/Painful Bladder Syndrome
  • Cystocele (bladder prolapse)
  • Pelvic floor dyssynergia

Painful Sex

Navigating less-than-pleasurable intimacy has several layers., but you don’t have to struggle alone.  Pelvic floor physical therapy helps address the multiple facets and factors contributing to the varied sexual dysfunctions you are experiencing.

  • Vaginismus (pain with vaginal penetration)
  • Postpartum return to intimacy
  • Difficulty with insertion/thrusting
  • Trauma-informed care

Pregnancy:
Prenatal/Postpartum Issues

The pregnancy journey, from carrying your child all the way through the 4th trimester, can be daunting, uncomfortable and sometimes painful.  Our bodies go through a massive change while carrying babies, followed by another considerable shift on the postpartum/recovery side.  Pelvic floor physical therapy has been shown to improve overall comfort during pregnancy, reported satisfaction of childbirth, and make the recovery process more efficient.

  • Prenatal aches and pains
  • Diastasis Recti/weak abdominals
  • Birth preparation and education
  • Prenatal posture changes  
  • Leaking
  • Return to sport
  • Return to intimacy
  • Cesarean scar care

Bowel Function

Often under-discussed with our community and medical providers, bowel dysfunction can be overwhelming, humiliating and often isolating.   It can be caused by diet/activity, a medical condition or childbirth.

  • Constipation
  • Diarrhea
  • Fecal Incontinence
  • Hemorrhoids/anal fissures
  • Pelvic floor dyssynergia

Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP)

Pelvic Organ Prolapse, or “POP” happens when one or more pelvic organs descend or bulge down into the vaginal canal.  Most common after giving birth, this can also arise after abdominal surgery, during/after menopause, with high impact sports or with generalized pelvic floor weakness.   Prolapses happen, but pelvic floor physical therapy can help.

  • Cystocele (bladder)
  • Uterine Prolapse (uterus)
  • Rectocele (rectum)
  • Enterocele (small intestines)
