What you should know about me: Beyond Basics is an international leader in pelvic floor physical therapy located in Midtown and Downtown Manhattan. Since 2003, we have helped thousands of people recover from a broad range of conditions rooted in pelvic floor dysfunction. Our physical therapists are trained in many kinds of treatment. We use internal and external manual therapy, including: myofascial release, trigger point release, connective tissue release, and craniosacral therapy. If necessary, we can even gently mobilize the organs themselves to improve function. We also use techniques such as biofeedback to retrain your muscles. We’ll teach you techniques you can take home with you and use between sessions to improve results. We also occasionally use cold laser, heat and cold therapy, electrical stimulation, and transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation. Neuromuscular re-education is a type of exercise aimed at retraining your muscles to perform in the way they were designed to perform in order to achieve coordination and optimal movement. This is essential to be able to carry out pain-free activities like standing, walking, and getting out of a chair, and also in maintaining healthy function going forward to prevent reinjury. Ultimately, we consult with our patients’ referring doctor or healthcare provider and work with our patients to create individualized exercise programs that are tailored to their needs. And we devote time every week to continuing education, so we’re always on the forefront of treatment options.
