INNER STRENGTH INITIATIVE STARTS FROM WITHIN
Does low-back or pelvic pain prevent you from lifting your children or grandchildren or getting down on the floor to play with them? Does incontinence make you nervous to laugh or cough? Does swelling or lymphedema brought on by breast cancer treatments make it impossible to wear your favorite blouse? Do your hips hurt when you go up and down stairs while pregnant or postpartum? If so, you may be suffering from a musculoskeletal issue, an injury or condition that affects the bodys mechanical structure.

WE ASSIST OUR FEMALE PATIENTS IN REDUCING PAIN AND RESTORING FUNCTION CAUSED BY CONDITIONS EXCLUSIVE TO WOMEN, INCLUDING:
PREGNANCY AND CHILDBIRTH
Pregnancy may impose anatomical and physiological challenges, which increase stress on the musculoskeletal system. Such changes may include postural alterations, weight gain, fluid retention, and abdominal/pelvic muscle weakness.
With proper diagnosis and treatment, most cases of urinary incontinence (involuntary loss of urine) can be successfully treated to ensure a better quality of life.
PELVIC FLOOR DYSFUNCTION
Muscular disorder of the pelvic floor may cause loss of strength or increased tension. Improper use or restriction of the pelvic floor muscles may cause symptoms such as painful intercourse, pain with tampon insertion, deep buttock, and low back.
Procedures performed during the birthing process may result in various conditions. We can assist in the rehabilitation of episiotomies, low back pain, intercourse, bowel movements, and cesarean sections.
Our program begins with an initial evaluation and diagnostic tests that assess strength, endurance, flexibility, coordination and pain patterns. Based on the results, a customized program is designed to return you to normal daily activities and independent function.
Treatment interventions may include:
- Internal soft tissue mobilization
- Muscle re-education
- Postural alignment
- Biofeedback/surface electromyography
- Electrical stimulation
- Bladder retraining
- Diet education
- Muscle energy technique
- Myofascial release
