Physical therapy focuses on restoring function and quality of life while decreasing pain. At Renew Pelvic Health, we work with every patient to set goals for what the individual patient wants to achieve in therapy. Each appointment is 55 minutes long and always one-on-one in order to provide our full attention and highest care to each patient. Although we are an out-of-network provider and do not bill insurance, we will provide the patient with a receipt for each visit, and this can be submitted to insurance. Please see the scheduling page for prices and to make an appointment!
We offer patient education, soft tissue mobilization (muscle, fascia, etc.), joint mobilization, and targeted strengthening, stretching, and trunk stabilization. We use biofeedback both for relaxation of tight, painful muscles, as well as for improving neuromuscular control and aiding in strengthening of weakened muscles. In addition, as pelvic floor physical therapists, we have advanced, post-graduate training in performing pelvic floor muscle evaluations and treatment, including specific internal techniques.
Pregnancy & Postpartum
We work with women before and during pregnancy, and postpartum. We help women prepare their bodies for the demands of pregnancy and childbirth, as well as decrease pain and improve their strength and stamina during their pregnancy. Postpartum physical therapy needs can vary; we will see women immediately if needed, though typically after the initial six weeks.
Diagnoses involving the urinary system include: urinary incontinence (stress, urge, or mixed), urinary hesitancy, difficulty urinating, spraying, overactive bladder, and urinary urgency/frequency. These conditions can affect women of all ages, and although leaking may be common during certain periods of life it is NOT normal! Renew Pelvic Health can help!
Pelvic floor physical therapy can also help with conditions affecting the bowels. Some of these conditions include: constipation, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), fecal incontinence, fecal urgency, and postsurgical conditions affecting the abdomen and bowels.
We often work with women experiencing pain in their back, abdomen, hips, buttocks, groin, pelvis, and pelvic floor. Some of the painful conditions we treat are: fascial adhesions, post-surgical scar tissue in the pelvic floor, low back, and abdomen, vaginismus, painful intercourse, pudendal neuralgia, vulvodynia, painful periods, endometriosis, proctalgia fugax, coccyx (tailbone) pain, and interstitial cystitis.
Too much mobility in our joints or laxity in our tissues without sufficient support and stability can cause pain and difficulty performing daily tasks. Examples of conditions we treat include: sacroiliac joint (SIJ) dysfunction, pubic symphysis dysfunction, pelvic organ prolapse, diastasis rectus abdominis (DRA), and poor postural habits.
