Pelvic Floor Dysfunction
Pelvic floor dysfunction often goes unnoticed and manifests in symptoms such as hip, low back and SIJ (sacroiliac joint) pain. It is also correlated with suboptimal breathing patterns. When there is weakness, inappropriate neuromuscular function, altered sensory awareness and pain in this area it can lead to problems such as urinary incontinence and leakage, pelvic organ prolapse and/or pelvic pain patterns such as vulvodynia, interstitial cystitis and dyspareunia (difficult or painful sexual intercourse).
We understand that pelvic floor dysfunction also goes untreated due to the sensitivity of the topic, which includes men. All sessions at One 2 One Physical Therapy are (as our name implies) 1:1 with your physical therapist and take place in a private treatment room. We appreciate your vulnerability and openness in seeking our assistance to restore this foundation of your core.
We work with children and adolescents experiencing bowel and bladder control problems such as bedwetting and constipation. These individuals benefit from our multifaceted therapies, especially postural and breathing retraining, reflex integration work, nutritional guidance and mind-body interventions.
We have also developed prenatal programs to support your body and developing baby in tandem with postnatal care programs to optimize healing and recovery after childbirth. It is common for women to develop pelvic floor related issues after pregnancy, labor and delivery. We have the tools to lead you back to full strength and function so you can focus on what is most important — being a mother to your newborn.
We use PRI in combination with specific pelvic floor training and therapeutic techniques to facilitate optimal pelvic floor and postural function. Our diagnostic ultrasound is an excellent tool for biofeedback training of the pelvic floor. We have great respect for the mind-body connection and will integrate holistic techniques as appropriate.
