My OB said that my back/pelvic pain is a normal part of pregnancy that I just have to live with. Is that the case?

By |May 21st, 2021|

Most certainly not! Low back pain and/or pelvic pain is common during pregnancy but it is NOT normal. Our trained therapists can work with you to find the source of your pain and to help you alleviate your symptoms. Treatments may include suggestions for support belts, massage techniques, posture exercises,  and instruction in changes to daily activities.

Is pelvic floor physical therapy painful?

By |May 21st, 2021|

Not really. But it is true that therapy is a very physical experience, and as such, treatments may be a little uncomfortable at times, but we will always aim to be as gentle as possible, and cause the least amount of discomfort possible, to get your problem solved as fast as we can. Before we do any therapy techniques we will tell you exactly what is about to happen so you can make an informed treatment choice. We never subscribe to the principle of “no pain, no gain.”

Isn’t pelvic physical therapy just for women?

By |May 21st, 2021|

No! Now, I will admit that at Back in Motion Sport and Spine Physical Therapy, we do see more women than men. However, men have pelvic floor muscles just like women, and therefore, they can also have pelvic floor dysfunction. The most common diagnoses we treat for men are post-prostatectomy-related incontinence as well as variations of male pelvic pain—however, we also treat men with bowel dysfunction, sexually related pain, urinary dysfunction, and tailbone pain.

How long do the sessions last?

By |May 21st, 2021|

It really depends on your condition. The initial appointment is usually 60 minutes Typically, you should expect any follow-up sessions to run about 40 minutes, give or take a few minutes. Realistically, it will take as long as you need to achieve your health goals.
