Incontinence, Pelvic Pain, Lymphedema,
Osteoporosis, Prenatal & Post-Partum
Women are unique in so many ways and that is why it is necessary to know so many techniques to help alleviate discomfort, pain, and even embarassment. This specialty is my passion as I have been through many of the same diagnoses I am seeing my patients for, and can empathize with their struggles.
Incontinence: Whether leakage of urine, feces, or both I take a holistic approach to treatment as the way you move, if you have pain, if you are weaker on one side of the body, etc can effect the function of the pelvic floor muscle. A complete evaluation will give me the information to help you gain control.
Pelvic Pain: Whether due to abdominal surgery, including cesarean section, endometriosis, interstitial cystitis, pudendal neuralgia, or even constipation, proven exercises and methods, including Visceral Mobilization, make a profound difference.
Lymphedema: Thankfully, this is not as prevalent as it was when I was first certified in 2001, but issues can still show up 20 years following lymph node removal, lumpectomy, or mastectomy. Specialized massage, exercises, taping, bandaging (in extreme cases), and garments to wear during the day and night will all be part of your care.
Osteoporosis: Posture correction exercises, weight lifting techniques, and Whole Body Vibration Plate training are all essential parts of your rehab for this REVERSIBLE condition!
Prenatal & Post-Partum: Correct Body Mechanics to reduce or prevent injury are paramount, along with manual therapy techniques and methods to reduce pain, such as sciatica,
and after baby care including addressing diastasis recti.
