Philosophy of care and typical treatment strategies: My treatment philosophy often focuses on coordination and proper technique. I emphasize breath control, breath coordination with abdominals and pelvic floor, use of breath for relaxation and control of pain. I believe touch is important for both awareness of proper muscle activation, awareness, and in calming the sympathetic nervous system. I work on myofascial work through the pelvis, abdomen, and pelvic floor and include visceral mobilization as needed. I am pilates trained and incorporate pilates progressions through my core stabilization programming. I find that with endometriosis patients, as well as with other patients experiencing chronic pelvic/abdominal pain, it is important to empower them and provide them strategies for long-term management of their symptoms. I believe in teaching the patient to become their “own” physical therapist vs. seeking out a “fix” so they become a part of the treatment process.
