What I Treat
If muscles, ligaments, joints or facia develop restrictions, this can cause your body to respond with types of pelvic pain.
Bowel and bladder dysfunction
Bowel and bladder incontinence--the loss of control of urine or stool--is a common and inconvenient problem.
Pregnancy & Postpartum
Pregnancy and childbirth can be a traumatic event to a woman’s pelvic floor, causing pain and dysfunction to muscles and tissues in the region.
Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP)
POP can occur when the muscles and ligaments supporting a woman's pelvic organs weaken, and the pelvic organs slip out of place.
