Pelvic & Abdominal

Have you been told?

  • Leaking is a normal part of aging . . . 

  • Just do Kegels . . .

  • You just had a baby, what do you expect?! . . .

  • Just have a glass of wine before to help you relax . . .

  • You just need more foreplay . . . 

  • It seems like it's probably all in your head . . .

  • There's nothing more I can do for you . . . 

These comments are not comforting to hear. Most of our patients have been told the same things. Although these issues are common, they are NOT normal and ARE treatable. These issues do not have to control your life. We can and want to help! And, no . . .we are not just going to teach you how to do Kegels!

What we treat

We specialize in pelvic floor dysfunction and treat a wide variety of issues, including but not limited to:

  • vulvar, vaginal, clitoral, perineal, anal/rectal pain (examples include: vulvodynia, vestibulodynia, vaginismus, clitorodynia, pudendal neuralgia)

  • pain during or after sex (dyspareunia) and painful orgasm (dysorgasmia)

  • pain with urinating (peeing) and/or defecating (pooping)

  • pain with sitting, cycling, horseback riding, exercising

  • male pelvic pain (penile, testes, perineal, or anal pain)

  • pubic bone, tailbone/coccyx (coccydynia), and SI joint pain/dysfunction

  • abdominal and groin pain

  • scar adhesions and numbness or pain (perineal, episiotomy, C-section, abdominal)

  • diastasis recti (abdominal separation or belly pooch)

  • interstitial cystitis/painful bladder syndrome

  • dysmenorrhea (painful periods)

  • infertility, endometriosis and PCOS (see info below)

  • pelvic organ prolapse or feeling of falling out or heaviness in pelvis

  • urinary issues (leaking urine/incontinence with coughing, sneezing, laughing, lifting, jumping, running)

  • frequent urination, urinary urgency, urinary burning, and urinary hesitancy or retention

  • gastrointestinal/digestive/bowel/fecal/pooping issues (such as: fecal incontinence/leakage, constipation, irritable bowel syndrome)

Having sex and making babies is supposed to be fun! However, we know firsthand that it can be very physically, mentally, and emotionally draining. Infertility affects 1 in 6 couples. Common conditions we see include: fallopian tube blockage, endometriosis, PCOS, premature ovarian failure, and unexplained infertility. Often times fertility challenges can be due to various mechanical restrictions/adhesions affecting your ability to conceive. We address these restrictions with specialized manual therapy techniques (including Barral gynecologic visceral manipulation) and teach you things you can do at home to holistically improve your fertility and wellness. We also collaborate with a few fertility experts in the area to ensure you receive the best possible outcome.
