Heal Your Pelvic Floor
Once postpartum, always postpartum
At Embrace Pelvic Health we help people heal after birth by taking a holistic approach to your health. We look at your pelvic floor, posture, breathing, and strength to help you return to activities you love. We help birthing people alleviate back pain, safely return to fitness, have pain free & pleasurable sex, and stop leaking. We will check your abdomen for a diastasis rectus abdominis and put your on the path to recovery. We will have you achieve your functional goals we set together. Parenthood does not have to equate to suffering.
Check out Postpartum Essentials to prepare for the first days and weeks postpartum and heal your pelvic floor, core, and bladder.
Prepare your body for birth
Learn how to improve or maintain your fitness safely throughout your pregnancy. We can help reduce your back, hip, or sacroiliac joint pain. We'll teach you what your body will need after birth so you can go into labor with confidence. We can teach you how to push to open your pelvic floor during birth and discuss delivery positioning and perineal massage to help prevent tearing.
Prepare your pelvic floor & prevent aging related pelvic floor dysfunction
Learn how to prevent & treat pelvic organ prolapse, leaking, constipation, and painful sex.
Pain free & pleasurable sex is achievable at any age. Get the tools you need to enjoy intimacy.
You deserve to know how to simultaneous exercise without leaks & maintain the best bone mineral density.
Don't suffer in silence
We treat all forms of pelvic pain including pain with intercourse, bladder pain, pain with sitting, tailbone pain, and abdominal discomfort.
Stress and trauma can manifest in your pelvic floor. We can help resolve pain by teaching you pelvic floor relaxation, breathing mechanics, posture assessment & correction, manual therapy such as trigger point release, and strengthening.
You don't know what you don't know
Get all of the information that you were never taught about the pelvic floor. Learn how to prevent leaking, pelvic organ prolapse, and pain with sex. Learn about your core and how to best optimize your workouts.
Learn how to go
Embrace PT & Wellness treats constipation due to outlet dysfunction. Many people suffer from not knowing how to push to move their bowels, accidentally squeezing their pelvic floor muscles, and sitting with incorrect posture all leading to constipation.
We will teach you the correct habits and techniques to get your bowels moving regularly.
Don't accept leaking as normal
Leaking is common, but not normal. Learn how to improve your pelvic floor muscles, your posture, and your breathing to alleviate leaks.
Leaking isn't all about kegels and pelvic floor muscle strength. It's about posture, coordinating your pelvic floor muscles to work at the right time, breathing, correctly using your abdominal muscles, timing, what you are drinking, and posture that doesn't put extra pressure on your bladder.
PELVIC ORGAN PROLAPSE
The lift you need
We treat bladder prolapse (cystocele), bowel prolapse (rectocele), and uterine prolapse. We can help you prevent or recover from surgery.
Pelvic organ prolapse can affect your activities, how you feel about your body, and your life. We'll use the best evidence to help you support your pelvic organs and get back to what you love.
Healing prolapse isn't all about kegels. We'll assess you from head to toe from your posture, breathing, pelvic floor and whole body strength, and mechanics.
Compassionate and informed
Embrace PT & Wellness will help you through your journey whether you have pelvic floor dysfunction, are planning on undergoing gender affirming surgery, or have had surgery.
We can help with back pain and mobility related to binding.
