Pelvic Floor Therapy
- In-office - Virtual-
Our pelvic floor muscles are just like any other muscle group in our bodies, and sometimes they can get out of balance, causing unwanted issues like leaking or even pain. Pregnancy and birth in and of itself is a major recovery process that warrants seeing a pelvic floor therapist for an evaluation. Even if you're not having issues now- let's keep it that way!
Just because you might be having symptoms at your pelvic floor, doesn't mean we ONLY look there. So many things impact the pelvic floor, which means we needs to think about the WHOLE body. Using a collaborative and whole-body approach, Rooted Pelvis can help you get to the bottom of the follow issues:
✔️ Urinary and bowel incontinence
✔️ Stress incontinence (leaking during exercise or other physical activity)
✔️ Increased urinary urgency and frequency
✔️ Pain or discomfort with sex
✔️ Scar tissue management (from episiotomy, tearing, or cesarean birth)
✔️ Pelvic organ prolapse symptoms
✔️ Pubic symphysis, pelvic, low back, tailbone, or sacroiliac (SI) joint pain
✔️ Body mechanics when caring for a newborn such as with feeding, baby wearing, or completing household tasks
✔️ Diastasis recti (abdominal separation)
✔️ Returning to exercise postpartum
✔️ Exercise during pregnancy
✔️ Preparation for birth
What to expect.
Initial evaluations consist of reviewing information from your intake form as well as looking at your posture, breathing, movement strategies, and any areas of pain. Together we will come up with a plan for the evaluation which may or may not include an internal pelvic exam. This is ALWAYS your choice.
At the end of the evaluation we'll discuss findings and develop a plan. You will leave with things to start working on from day one!
90 Minute Initial Evaluations
60 Minute Follow-up Sessions
Follow-up sessions include a combination of hands-on manual therapy, exercise, functional movements, and education on topics such as bowel, bladder, sexual, & mental health.
I use a blend of modalities for movement including yoga and functional strength training, but provide an individualized approach based on your unique needs.
After each session, you will receive a message in your portal with strategies that we covered as well as videos for your home exercise program.
