This month we are promoting self-care and a New Year meaning a New YOU! With that in mind, it’s important to make sure that you are taking care of yourself in all the important ways. Putting yourself first for a change to make sure that you have the BEST year ahead!
Our patients tell us all the time about things that are bothering them that brought them in to see us…but there are a lot of things that they had NO idea they could come see a physical therapist for to get help and make a change in their life. They tell us that there were so many things happening with their body that they did not know they could make a difference!! And they had no idea how a pelvic floor physical therapist could help make a change in their life…
Here are some common things that we hear from our patients related to their pelvic floor:
Many patients who are sent to Breakaway have been told by their doctor that they could benefit from pelvic floor physical therapy, BUT they have little to no understanding of what we can do or how we can help.
When we ask our patients, what is the BIGGEST thing that they are looking to see change by working together, more times than not they say…“I don’t know, my doctor send me here. I don’t even know what you do.”
So, let’s start here…WHO can benefit from pelvic floor physical therapy? After all, there was a reason you were seeking help in the first place! Something made you call a healthcare provider because there is something that is holding you back from living your best life…
All these things can be related to pelvic floor dysfunction, and all indicate the potential benefit from seeking a skilled pelvic floor physical therapist!
It is so easy to pass off these symptoms and think that they will just get better in time. It is also quite common to ignore these issues OR accept them thinking that you should just have to deal with them.

Well, we are here to tell you to STOP waiting for things to get better on their own when you can get the help that you need. Some patients come in six weeks after giving birth, some have never had children, and others have experienced some form of their symptoms for more than 10 years! And YES, we also see men with these issues AND kids too (commonly for constipation, bed wetting and more)!
Your body can HEAL and make the change that you are looking for. You just must give it the time, attention and come see a pelvic floor physical therapist to help you!
It is amazing to see the transformation that our patients make each day from working together. It is truly rewarding to see the difference and get to be a part of changing their life so that nothing is holding them back! There are so many things that you can learn about your body and tips to make things better immediately.
