  • Post Natal Weaknesses

 

Orthopedic and Women's Health Issues Treated with Physical Therapy

Vaginismus

Characterized by vaginal tissues that contract involuntarily during penetration causing pain. 

           

Dyspaurenia

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. 

 

Coccydynia

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.

 

Diastasis Recti

A separation of the abdominal muscles.

 

 

Hip Pain

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. 

 

C-Section Recovery

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.

 

Abdominal Pain

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

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.

Testimonials

Yelp.com

“...I finally feel like my body is functioning the way it is supposed to. She has a very positive attitude and an almost caring and motherly spirit. She has helped me to pinpoint what has triggered my issues with my pelvic floor (which I've previously been trying to resolve for over two years)... After a few months, I'm finally weening off my medication (with the help and encouragement of Rachel) and I have a deeper understanding of my body and strategies to help. She has helped me more than any other gastroenterologist, holistic therapist, and chiropractor...She will be your PT, supportive listener, and a flexible problem solver. It's HARD to find a good pelvic floor therapist with experience and patient success stories. She has them both.”

"Rachel provided me with relief after just one visit. In my first pregnancy I developed severe problems with my SI and weakening of pelvic floor. I saw 2 physical therapists, 1 chiropractor and 1 prenatal massage therapist over the course of 18 months and found little relief. Now during my second pregnancy, the same issues are reoccurring. Just one visit weekly with Rachel over the course of my pregnancy has completely alleviated my symptoms, deepened my understanding of the changes my body is going through as well as taught me the proper technique to do the strengthening exercises at home on my own... My treatment is almost over and I can honestly say I will miss Rachel and our sessions."
