  • Sexual Health
    If you are experiencing pelvic pain which is affecting your sexual health and wellness, you know that it is not always easy to discuss with your provider. For those who are feeling pain with penetration, orgasm, vulvar pain, penile or testicular pain there are interventions that can give you relief and healing for your body. The pelvis and pelvic floor muscles can be a place where our body stores emotional and physical trauma. Pain may be a result of birth, surgery, emotional or sexual trauma. Providing a safe place for your body to process these experience is available here when you are ready.
  • Birth Preparation and Postpartum Recovery
    Preparing for a vaginal or VBAC birth? In the Birth Preparation session, we will review ideal labor and birthing positions, breathing techniques, efficient pushing, and mobility exercises. We will also discuss preparation of perineal tissue. Biofeedback is typically used in this session. This session is to allow you to feel prepared and have control of your pelvic floor muscles so that you can be present in the moment. Postpartum Recovery visits can be scheduled under the Initial Evaluation scheduling option. Every one deserves a postpartum physical therapy assessment. Signs you may want to seek out a pelvic PT postpartum: Diastatsis Recti/ Abdominal Muscle Separation, Bladder Leakage (Urinary, Fecal, Gas Incontinence), Urinary Frequency/Urgency, Rectal/Anal Pain, Pain with Intercourse/Penetration (Vaginismus, Vulvodynia, Dyspareunia), Difficulty with Orgasm, Tailbone pain, Back pain, Pelvic Floor Retraining, Pelvic Organ Prolapse, Perineal Scar treatment, Cesarean Scar Rehabilitation.
  • Chronic Abdominal or Pelvic Pain
    Diagnoses such as endometriosis, interstitial cystitis, adenomyosis, uterine fibroids, PCOS, and gastrointestinal disorders require an interdisciplinary team. A physical therapist specialized to help with these conditions can give you better symptom management and relief in chronic pain. My aim is to improve coordination of care with your team of specialists and help you manage a complex healthcare system. Manual treatment to the pelvis and abdomen are used to improve blood and lymph flow to the ovaries, uterus and surrounding tissues to regulate your central nervous system, aid in digestion, and assist hormone regulation.
