PELVIC FLOOR WORKSHOP
Walk away with a renewed sense of confidence around your core! This Workshop is being offered and can accommodate 6 women. Size is small to allow for a more personalized environment. Most women report feeling unheard, invalidated, and startled by how little information they are given during their childbearing years and beyond.
I am a Women’s Health Physical Therapist, Mom, and exercise/movement enthusiast! I
understand that movement is crucial to feeling your best, coping with stress, and moving
through life with resiliency. Women 6 weeks postpartum and beyond are welcome.
This Workshop is best suited for 60-minute for women who want to gain a deeper understanding of their deep core and learn strategies to help with common issues like:
Pelvic Floor Problems
Low Back Pain
SI Joint Dysfunction
Post Natal Weaknesses

Orthopedic and Women's Health Issues Treated with Physical Therapy
Characterized by vaginal tissues that contract involuntarily during penetration causing pain.
The term used to describe pain with intercourse. This can occur for different reasons. Sometimes psychoemotional as well as medical contributions may cause this to occur.
Pain at the tailbone. Can be the result of a traumatic event such as childbirth or a fall. The muscles and joints of the pelvis connect to the coccyx and can influence its position being contributing to the pain.
Sacroiliac Pain and Dysfunction
The SI Joint refers the joint formed between the sacral bone and the ilium, which is part of the pelvis. This joint can become painful as a result of changes in the way these bones articulate with each other.
Low Back Pain
A very common area that can become painful from overuse and a weak deep core. This can also be the result of an isolated musculoskeletal issue such as a strain or injury. Low back pain can also be the secondary effect related to deep core weaknesses, inhibition, and dysfunction within the surrounding tissues and joints.
A separation of the abdominal muscles.
Hip pain can occur along the front, side, or back of the hip joint making it difficult to walk, climb stairs, or get up from a chair.
Following a C-section a woman may have scar tissue that limits the full recovery of the tissues and ultimately the ability for optimal muscle strength to return. Resolving scar tissue and restriction in the lower abdomen can help the restorative process of the deep core.
This includes pain that is occurring in the abdomen that may be contributing to issues such as constipation, deep core weaknesses, and other pelvic dysfunctions.
Urinary Incontinence (Stress and Urge Incontinence)
This refers to the involuntary leakage of urine. This may or may not be accompanied with urgency. Women with stress incontinence will experience leaking during increases in abdominal pressure such as coughing, laughing, and sneezing.
Prolapse can occur with urethra, bladder, or uterus. This is the result of a weakening of the supportive tissues that hold these structures in place. When this happens these structures or organs move into the vaginal canal. Cases can be mild to severe.
