As a pelvic floor physical therapist, I have specialized training in the evaluation and treatment of conditions related to the pelvic region. I work with people of all genders to address a variety of issues, including:
1. Urinary incontinence
A pelvic floor physical therapist can help people with stress incontinence (leakage of urine during activities such as coughing or sneezing) or urge incontinence (sudden, intense urge to urinate followed by leakage).
2. Pelvic pain
A pelvic floor physical therapist can treat pain related to conditions such as vulvodynia, interstitial cystitis, and endometriosis. They can also help people with pain related to pregnancy, postpartum recovery, and surgery.
3. Sexual dysfunction
A pelvic floor physical therapist can help people with conditions such as vaginismus, dyspareunia (pain during intercourse), and erectile dysfunction.
4. Pregnancy and postpartum care
A pelvic floor physical therapist can help women prevent and treat conditions such as urinary incontinence, pelvic pain, and diastasis recti during and after pregnancy. They can also provide education on proper lifting and carrying techniques to prevent back pain and other issues.
5. Constipation and bowel dysfunction
A pelvic floor physical therapist can help people with constipation and other bowel issues by teaching exercises and techniques to improve bowel function.
Regardless of the issue or condition, I always look at the whole person from head to toe. I use a variety of treatment techniques, including manual therapy, exercise, dry needling and electrical stimulation. I’m also specially trained in use of the Redcord suspension system to help my clients restore deep muscle control from the pelvis out. Furthermore, I work with each person individually to identify and modify lifestyle factors that may be contributing to their symptoms.
If you are experiencing any pelvic floor-related symptoms, contact Activcore. Speaking with a pelvic floor physical therapist over the phone can be a good first step to getting the treatment you need.
