Nicole Fraser, PT, DPT specializes in pelvic health rehabilitation and is accepting new patients.

Pelvic Health Rehabilitation

Pelvic health physical therapy focuses not only on the pelvic floor, but the whole body as it relates to the pelvic floor. The pelvic floor consists of muscle and soft tissue that travels from your pubic bone to your tail bone. It is the ‘floor’ of your trunk, supporting the organs in your abdominal cavity.

Pelvic floor dysfunctions include, but are not limited to, pelvic pain syndromes, urinary incontinence, fecal incontinence, dyspareunia or pain with intercourse, pain from an episiotomy or scarring, vulvodynia, and vestibulitis.

If you are unsure if you would benefit, ask yourself these questions and if you answer YES to any of them, you may benefit from pelvic health physical therapy.

  1. Do you have urine or bowel leakage when coughing, sneezing, running, or lifting something heavy?
  2. Do you leak when you are trying to get to the toilet in a hurry?
  3. Do you have difficulty emptying your bladder or bowels?
  4. Do you have a falling out feeling in your vaginal or rectal area?
  5. Are you constipated or do you strain during bowel movements?
  6. Has the loss of bladder or bowel control affected your quality of life?
  7. Do you have pain during intercourse or when sitting?

All of our Physical Therapists are trained in Functional Dry Needling.

Functional dry needling

Functional Dry Needling is a form of therapy in which fine needles are inserted into dysfunctional muscle, tendons, ligaments, or near nerves to stimulate a healing response in painful musculoskeletal conditions. Dry needling is a modern, science-based intervention for the treatment of a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions.

Our PTs will use BFR training if it could help increase your strength. 

Blood Flow Restriction Training

Blood Flow Restriction (BFR) Training is low-intensity exercise performed under reduced arterial blood flow conditions. This creates an anaerobic (low oxygen) environment in the muscle, which is optimal for building muscle mass and strength. BFR allows individuals to use low loads, yet achieve results similar to high intensity training. BFR is a powerful tool to enhance your workout when you otherwise wouldn’t be able to train – like after surgery or an injury. It is also beneficial for athletes looking to manage chronic loads.
