Park Sports Therapy Pelvic Floor Therapy

Pelvic Floor Therapy and Dysfunction.

Pelvic Floor Therapy can be an important part of a healthy life.  So when it comes to posture, comfort, intimacy, and health & wellness, your pelvic floor region is one of the most vital parts of your body. Many women face daily discomfort, lack of intimacy, physical pain, and more due to a dysfunction of the muscles, ligaments, connective tissues and nerves that support the pelvic region. That is why a healthy pelvis and re-energized pelvic floor can greatly restore your health and well-being. It can help to eliminate symptoms that are negatively effecting your life.

Pelvic Floor Dysfunction (PFD) may be brought on by a variety of reasons including pregnancy, childbirth, menopause, prior surgery, heavy lifting and straining, obesity, and congenitally weak connective tissue. This can lead to vulvar pain, localized pelvic discomfort, prolapse, lower back pain, leakage, incontinence and much more. Most do not seek advice from a physical therapist. Those that do however, can see life changing results.

At Park Sports, we are dedicated to life changing results.

The Park Sports Therapy approach to Pelvic Floor Dysfunction.

What to Expect When Getting Started.

At Park Sports, we understand the seriousness of your decision to seek help. We offer evidence-based and individualized Pelvic Floor Dysfunction (PFD) treatment plans and approach everything we do at Park Sports with a wealth of knowledge and a history of success.

Our PFD therapist Lacey Salberg PT, DPT has received extensive training from the Herman & Wallace Pelvic Rehabilitation Institute, a leader in pelvic floor education and awareness. Lacey will take the time to discuss your health concerns and fully evaluate your condition. She will then create personalized plan, uniquely designed for your comfort level, your lifestyle and your body. You will receive one-on-one sessions in our private treatment room as she, together with you, reach your health goals.

Working Together.

We consider your health a team effort. Part of your therapy will include a Home Exercise Program that will help you progress through your treatment plan. As your body makes advancements, it is possible that your initial plan may need some adjustments. Your therapist will listen carefully to your body and closely monitor your functional gains. If necessary, she will discuss adjusting your treatment plan to better achieve your health goals.
