Our approach to care is:
Individualized: All sessions are 1:1 with a pelvic health specialist. We do not use techs and all treatment sessions are 1 hour long. Our therapists are committed to finding out the “why” of your condition and developing a treatment plan specific and individualized to the underlying cause.
Specialized: Our therapists have hundreds of hours of specialized post-doctoral pelvic health and orthopedic training.
Supportive: We strive to create a supportive, caring and safe environment for all of our patients through clinical excellence and trauma informed, patient centered care.
Empowering: You can recover! Empowering patients with the tools, education, and skills to live a productive and pain free life is our passion!

What can I expect at my
At your first visit you will meet in a private treatment room 1 on 1 with one of our pelvic health physical therapists. She will ask questions to understand your history and condition and listen to your story. She will then perform a detailed assessment which includes watching you move, looking at your posture and other tests/measures she feels are applicable. If appropriate and indicated, she may do an internal assessment of the pelvic floor either vaginally or rectally. This will be discussed with you prior to the exam and only performed with your consent. This will give her very important information about your pelvic floor muscle function. She will explain her findings and give you something to start on at home! Your evaluation and treatment will be specific to you and ongoing each session.
Should I still come to physical therapy if I am on my period?
This is totally up to you, based on your comfort level. However, for us, this is not a problem. We have many things we can work on in physical therapy, including external work, exercises, and education, which are not limited by menstruation. Plus, coming during your cycle helps us to treat symptoms you may have while on your period, easing your pain and giving us further insight into your pelvic floor condition.
How long should I wait to come to PT after giving birth?
We begin seeing patients between 4-6 weeks postpartum. If there are concerns before then, please call our office. Otherwise, make sure to take advantage of the prenatal care we offer which includes how to navigate the first 4 weeks postpartum.
What can I do to prepare for my appointment?
One of the best things you can do is to write down any questions you have before coming to PT. We want to make sure we address your concerns and needs during each session
