Bowel and bladder function is essential for overall well-being and optimal quality of life. Dysfunction in both of these have become “normalized” but this does not mean they are “normal”. Bowel and bladder functioning is multifactorial and affected by lifestyle, behavior, psychological factors, and muscle functioning. Pelvic health physical therapists are trained to evaluate bowel and bladder dysfunction from musculoskeletal and lifestyle perspectives in order to develop comprehensive treatment plans to optimize functioning.
• Pelvic pain
• Decreased pelvic floor awareness
• Core weakness
• Central nervous system dysregulation
• Pelvic floor weakness
• Lack of muscular coordination
• Postural imbalances
The pelvic floor is the base of the core and works to support the pelvic organs inclusive of the bladder and colon. Dysfunction in the pelvic floor can lead to and contribute to bowel and bladder dysfunction. Some diagnoses are treatable by a pelvic health physical therapist while for others, pelvic health physical therapy focuses on the management of symptoms. Either way, the goal of physical therapy is to set you up for success to optimize your function and quality of life.
Pelvic Health is typically not a big part of a physical therapist’s education. It is a specialization requiring much further study, training and practice following graduation.
Activcore physical therapists are uniquely qualified to treat people with pelvic floor dysfunction. They go beyond the symptoms and look at the whole body. Equipped with the Redcord suspension system and other industry leading tools, they are specially trained to optimize how your mind and muscles work together so that you can regain control of your body.
You’re never just a number at Activcore. You will have your own dedicated physical therapist (not an aide) by your side throughout every session.
In a private office setting, your physical therapist will perform a comprehensive physical exam and movement screen to help determine the underlying root cause of the dysfunction. Together, you and your provider will then develop and commit to a plan of care tailored to your individual needs, lifestyle and goals.
You will feel the Activcore difference from your first visit. A highly personalized experience applying the latest breakthrough techniques, such as neuromuscular activation, postural muscle retraining, trigger point dry needling, manual therapy, myofascial release, and Pilates apparatus exercise.

When I first met Bryan Lynd at Activcore my goal was clear: to walk onto the first tee at the senior men’s club championship as a 55 year old and have my competitors be intimidated by having to play such a youthful and athletic golfer. Not only did I achieve this, but I won the championship. Working with Bryan I was able to overcome a labral tear in my shoulder and avoid having to get surgery. Using the Redcord system I have been able to strengthen my core and continue to improve my golf game as I get older.
Activcore is unlike anything I have ever experienced. One patient, one provider, one hour – one at a time, every time. If you’re serious about your physical therapy and recovery, this is the only place to go!
I was looking for assistance with my golf clients who were dealing with pain while trying to play. Luckily I met Bryan, and after talking with and being treated by him I was very confident in his abilities as a therapist and was able to refer my clients to him. From there, we formed a partnership in which we put clients through the TPI golf mobility screen, as well as a TPI performance screen. Thanks to Bryan and his extremely detailed work assessing movement, pain, and dysfunction, our clients had a detailed plan in place from the very first assessment.
Partnering with a TPI Medical Professional has been a huge benefit in helping my students improve their swing. Everyone's physical make up is different, so it is imperative to understand the limitations of my students. By partnering with a therapist, we can discuss what needs to be done in order to help a student with their game. The TPI approach to instruction is vital. Having Dr. Bryan Lynd in my corner has helped take my instruction to another level!
