Did you know that in Europe, every woman is sent to a Pelvic Floor Physical Therapist immediately postpartum. EVERY WOMAN! I wish we all did this in America! Do you know how many conditions we could have treated early and enhanced their recovery? Well, it is a lot!

Why is this so important? You just experienced a marathon event in your delivery experience. Even if everything goes right, you are still exhausted. Yet, many women want to lose the baby weight immediately post partum and start doing intense cardio. The changes to our...

Many of us hold our breath everyday…when we get out of bed, when we stand up, when we exercise and when we lift. How many of you just realized you were also holding your breath as you were reading this?

Did any of you know our diaphragm (one of our primary breathing muscles) is also one of our core muscles? Many people mistakenly think that only their abdominals are their core, but we actually have a core cylinder.  

Think of our core cylinder like a soda can, our diaphragm is on top, pelvic floor on the bottom and then our deep...

A lot of us make New Year’s resolutions to work out, but frequently we may get sidelined from an injury as we start to train for something. If this has been you in the past, set up an appointment now! We can look at your current routine and modify it to allow you to reach your goals without pain. Pain is inhibiting, so that chronically sore back can keep you from being the best you can be in that training program. Treating it early, can allow you to minimize future setbacks. We can’t wait to help you achieve your goals. 

Happy N...

You have tried doing the breathing exercise I recommended 

Number One: Too big of a breath causes increased lower back pain. Yes, that can occur. Only due the breath that you can do without pain, this is not a contest. As your diaphragm gets stronger you will automatically feel that your breath increases without this pain.

Number Two: Abdominal scarring. This is one of my favorite reasons for your restrictions because this is where we come in. If this scar tissue is not directly mobilized, your breathing may never completely be r...

In a short word… yes! When our alignment is stacked appropriately, then we will find our core engagement happens automatically. However, many people are stuck in gripping patterns that can actually be making us weaker. Yes, that’s right! That military posture your parent’s always taught you was good posture is actually giving you pain.

You may say that makes no sense, but here is why. I want you to stand up in that military posture and tell me where do you feel tightness in your body. Is it your abdominals, back, glutes or neck?...

Does my Diastasis need Physical Therapy?

The answer is it depends. Don’t you hate that!

I would like to see everyone postpartum, but since I don’t practice in France, we know that is not going to happen. So I will give you a brief qualification on who may and may not benefit from a visit to a board certified women’s health specialist (or pelvic floor specialist for short).

Every woman will have a 1-2 cm DR during the late stage of pregnancy. This should resolve within 8 weeks and definitely shouldn’t last more than a year (get sta...
