What Is Pelvic Floor / Pelvic Health Physical Therapy?

The pelvic floor is a group of muscles that support our bladder, bowel, intestines, and reproductive organs, and allow us to perform related functions. A pelvic health physical therapist identifies and treats muscular, joint, and nerve dysfunction throughout the body. The pelvic floor, though not often discussed, is a vital part of our bodies and should not be ignored especially in conditions such as pelvic pain, pregnancy, prolapse, sexual dysfunction, constipation, urinary dysfunction, and fecal or urinary incontinence.
 
Pelvic health physical therapy is provided by a physical therapist with additional training in the function of organs and their relationship to the musculoskeletal system as well as internal and external pelvic floor assessment and treatment. In order to treat the pelvic floor, you must know how to evaluate the muscles and associated structures. This is the specialized skill set our physical therapists will bring to you.

Physical Therapy First
Texas allows you to seek physical therapy treatment without a physician referral. This is a great move in the right direction, allowing you to get treatment quickly and feel better within the same week! Our therapist is trained in differential diagnosis enabling her to determine whether your symptoms are caused by muscular, nervous system, or other internal dysfunction without the use of expensive, time-consuming, and misleading X-rays or MRIs. If PT isn't right for you, we'll help you find the provider who will be able to help.

Physical therapy done right addresses your root issue and resolves your concerns rather than just covering up the symptoms.  We work closely with other providers including OB/GYNs, Midwives, Colorectal surgeons, Gastroenterologists, Functional Medicine Providers, Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation physicians, Psychologists, Urologists, and Urogynecologists to provide a holistic approach to your care.
 

Prenatal and Postpartum Yoga

IMG_9235.jpg

Prenatal Yoga

Yoga during pregnancy is known to provide health benefits to Mom and baby.  Yoga, taught by Tory Christopherson-Sommerfeldt, keeps you strong and flexible during birth. Yoga is commonly recommended during pregnancy to reduce aches and pains, improve blood pressure and stress levels, strength and prepare you for birth. Tory, a registered yoga teacher, teaches you to listen to your body and balance challenging yourself with relaxation. Poses are easily modifiable and safe for everyone to enjoy. Classes are available on-line live and pre-recorded and in-person.

Postpartum Yoga

Postpartum Yoga is one of the first exercises we often recommend to new moms. It's gentle, slow and controlled but challenging enough for you to grow and regain strength, balance and flexibility after having a baby.  You'll find that yoga classes taught by Tory Christopherson-Sommerfeldt, are enjoyable and relaxing.  Yoga after having a baby can help you to reconnect with your body, reduce aches and pains, increase strength of the whole body and be a stepping block back to other exercise. Tory, a registered yoga teacher, teaches you to listen to your body and balance challenging yourself with relaxation. Classes are available online live and on-demand and in-person. 

Mom and Baby and Toddler Yoga

Finding your groove after having a baby can be difficult. When it's your second, it's even harder.  Tory, our registered yoga instructor, knows how difficult it can be to find time for yourself to exercise and start moving your body again so all kids are welcome to this class. Babies and toddlers get to play and interact with parents during this class while Mom gets stronger and finds some moments of relaxation. These classes are fun and no-pressure. We all have fun and move our bodies!

 

Nutritional Counseling

IMG_9359.jpg

What is Nutritional Counseling?

Nutritional Counseling consists of education and tools to help you meet your health goals.  This may include:

- weight loss

- gut health - leaky gut, constipation and diarrhea, IBS

- eating to prevent gestational diabetes progression

- nutrition to improve diabetes

- weight gain

- eating to improve low energy levels

- Vegan/Plant based diet nutrition

- eating for injury healing

- eating for high exercise levels and competitions

How is our approach different?

We are here to help you meet your goals, not to force you to eat a certain way. 

DeAndrea Payne, our nutritionist, is trained to help you get to the root cause of your concerns and meet your goals by changing the food you eat. 

- No fad diets!   While people may lose weight quickly, they usually gain it back and more. We believe in creating real, lasting change that is sustainable and healthy.

- Meeting you where you are!  One small step can make a big difference in how you feel.  Those steps build on each other to get you to your goals but it can be overwhelming to try everything at once. We start with the changes that are the easiest and most realistic for you which makes the hard changes easier. 

- Give you the tools! We believe that if you have the knowledge and support to achieve your goals that you can take more control of your health and be empowered to meet your goals.

- Customized plans! Not everyone wants to be vegan and not everyone wants to eat bacon. We help you find the right foods to give you the nutrients and energy you needs while losing weight, feeling stronger and more energetic.
