Women's Pelvic Physical Therapy

Women often seek me out on their own volition after being told they will need a surgical intervention to resolve the leakage of urine, feces, or gas following perineal trauma from birth. Physical therapy is a gentle, nonsurgical approach to resolving leakage, pain, and prolapse of pelvic organs. This is a very intimate, yet professional method of treatment. I work externally, and internally on the pelvic muscles, tissues, and organs. This involves one finger inserted either vaginally or rectally to access these structures. I encourage you to ask questions, communicate your feelings and experience, or end the assessment. This is professional and safe, and allows me to help you recover from pelvic pain, leakage, or other pelvic symptoms. I encourage all women postpartum to seek a pelvic physical therapy assessment following birth. This is how we heal and transform from the inside, out.
