Profile Description

Philosophy of care and typical treatment strategies:

We know from the literature that the majority of patients with endometriosis have a trigger or tender points in the abdomen and/or pelvic floor that can be contributing to symptoms. We work to alleviate pain associated with muscoloskeletal drivers with a variety of techniques, including myosfascial release, visceral manipulation and pelvic floor trigger point release.
We also work with patients to decrease central nervous system sensitization which can be amplifying pain signals for patients through education, breathing exercises and vagus nerve stimulation.
We help prepare patients for excision surgery and facilitate a full recovery after surgery, including scar tissue mobilization to reduce scar tissue adhesion.
We are also able to significantly reduce associated symptoms like painful intercourse, low back pain, and hip/groin pain that often accompany an endometriosis diagnosis (or suspected diagnosis). As we know, many patients with endo are also diagnosed with other comorbid pelvic pain conditions (like interstitial cystitis) that pelvic physical therapy can also address.
