Physical Therapy: I am now working atHealth in Balance Physical Therapy in their Germantown location with a focus on Pelvic Health Physical Therapy. This is insurance-based PT and you can schedule an appointment by calling the clinic. My focus is on incontinence (leaking urine with activity or urgency), pelvic pain (women and men), low back pain and pregnancy or post-partum issues. If you have non-pelvic health related issues you would like to see me for, an appointment can be requested. Contact Health in Balance to make an appointment
An initial assessment is about 60 minutes and includes going through your intake forms, a thorough history, a movement screen, evaluation and treatment and education. If you are seeing me for a pelvic floor related problem and not sure what a physical therapy exam of the pelvic floor looks like, this video is a wonderful explanation. We will work together to come up with a plan of care and discuss your goals for treatment. Follow up appointments are usually around 45-60 minutes. We will work together utilizing movement/exercise prescription, gentle manual therapy, learning body awareness principles, discussing habits, lots of education, goal-setting, stress management self-care, as well as other tools. ( breathing techniques, core integration, etc).
What to bring and wear? Please bring or wear shorts or clothes/pants you can easily move in (pants that roll up above the knee.) A notebook to jot down notes and questions is also a good idea.
Group Classes: I periodically offer group movement classes or workshops. The cornerstone of my classes is exploratory exercises, functional movement, yoga poses, reflexive core and body awareness work, although I bring in a variety of other resources. Please visit my "About" pages to learn more about these classes and the Group Class Schedule to see what is currently being offered.
