PELVIC HEALTH Physical Therapy
What is Pelvic Health and Why Does it Matter?
The pelvic floor is a group of muscles located in your pelvis between the pubic bone and your tailbone. These muscles support the spine, pelvis and internal organs, aid in bladder and bowel function as well as sexual appreciation.
These muscles are treated just like muscles anywhere else in your body –they just happen to be in a different neighborhood that no one likes to talk about! When the muscle function in and around the pelvis becomes imbalanced, you may experience a variety of symptoms.
Many people suffer in silence and accept their pelvic condition as normal, keeping them from doing the things they love, making pelvic health vital to your overall health and well-being!
People often ask how I got into pelvic floor physical therapy. My journey began with a newfound appreciation for my body after experiencing unexpected post-pregnancy challenges. As I delved into pelvic health, I realized what I was going through wasn’t normal. Balancing a high-stress job with self-study, I hit a breaking point when my bladder nearly burst one day as I ran to the bathroom, leaving my crying son in the car in the driveway barely unbuttoning my pants before I started to pee.
That was my turning point – realizing I couldn’t do it all alone. With support from incredible PTs and my own dedication, I prioritized my pelvic health so I could not only be a more effective PT, but also a mom. Today, I provide women with superior, holistic care because I’ve walked the same path, and your healing journey deserves compassion and expertise.
