About Us

The specialty of Pelvic Rehabilitation has continued to grow in the fields of medicine and physical therapy to include a more comprehensive service for both men and women. Both of our pelvic floor physical therapists have received specialized training in treating many conditions including pelvic floor pain, pre & post-natal care, scar tissue management, and bowel & bladder dysfunction to name a few. Each of these conditions requires individually tailored treatment depending on each patient’s specific presentation and symptoms that they are experiencing. Our therapists are dedicated and passionate about providing the highest quality of research based and compassionate care to each patient to help restore them to their optimal function and quality of life.

A common misconception about pelvic physical therapy is that all it consists of is Kegel exercises. While pelvic floor muscle exercises are very important they are only one very small piece of the care provided by pelvic floor physical therapists. Other treatments utilize neuroscience, knowledge and adjustment of posture and body alignment, behavior retraining, down-training techniques, relaxation techniques, manual therapy including myofascial release, scar tissue/adhesion mobilization and release, bowel and bladder retraining and much, much more. Which treatment is used depends on the specific needs of each patient. These treatments are used as part of a team approach along with OBGYN, urology, urogynecology, gastroenterology, family practice and nurse midwives among many other types of providers, to provide patients with appropriate comprehensive care.

Testimonials

Our goal is to address the underlying problems of your condition and give you the tools necessary to help
manage your symptoms, in order to get you back to your life.

I am very satisfied with my time with Valerie. She is excellent at what she does and very knowledgeable. When I started going there I had so many issues after having a baby and it took her some time to pinpoint all of them, but she did. I haven't fully recovered yet, but I blame that on lax ligaments because of nursing. I am doing a lot better though. When I first started going the pain was really bad and now it is manageable. I definitely recommend coming here to see Valerie, especially if you need some help recovering from a having a baby.

I was extremely doubtful going in for my physical therapy but Val and her team have made me a believer! They taught me the correct way to move forward in my life with a 95% improvement. Each day I continue with the exercises I learned. Val’s enthusiasm and knowledge have inspired me, bravo!
