Conditions we treat
We treat for Pelvic Prolapse a condition where organs in the pelvic region drop to a lower position because of weakened muscles and ligaments in the Pelvic Floor. In addition to this we also treat for pre and post partum pains, vaginismus, incontinence, chronic constipation, dyspareunia, urine and fecal urgency, and any pelvic pain.
How we Treat
We use a variety of internal (female only), external, and manual techniques and tools that aim to relax and strengthen the muscles and joints of the pelvic floor. Our techniques being tissue recovery and repair, fascial release with movement, proprioceptive nueromuscular facilitation, hip mobilization and stretching, SIJ alignment, scar break down, core strengthening, pelvic control, muscle energy balance, pelvic floor awareness, dilation, and sensation training. Our tools being the use of Kegel weights, pelvic wands, and dry needling.
