WHAT CLIENTS SAY

Megan is incredibly knowledgeable and insightful coupled with a warm, compassionate manner. After seeing multiple specialists for unresolved pelvic/hip pain with no diagnosis and a proposed surgical plan, I was referred to Megan, who immediately identified the source of my pain and reassured me that together with treatment and a simple home plan, I would be pain free. After 5 weeks, I am grateful to have a diagnosis, to have avoided an unnecessary surgery, and to be back to running and skiing with no pain.

Jeanine—

Chronic Pelvic Pain

After silently suffering extremely painful intercourse for nearly 10 years I began treatment with Megan.   Her knowledge and understanding of my problem along with her incredible compassion and encouragement set me at ease on my first visit. Megan assured me that she would be with me every step of my journey to pelvic health and wellness.  I am ecstatic to say that after just 3 months of therapy with Megan, along with faithful daily at-home therapy and exercises, I feel like a new woman.  Not only did Megan’s skill help me physically, but also she helped me to realize that “I am worth it.” Both my husband and I thank Megan from the bottom of our hearts. She literally changed our lives.

JLD—

Chronic Pelvic Pain 

Everyone talks about postpartum in terms of baby blues, nipple tenderness, being extremely tired, etc. No one tells you about how intense the healing process is on your muscles, especially in your pelvic floor. I contacted Megan when I was 7 weeks postpartum because I was experiencing really uncomfortable pressure and was concerned. Megan was so thorough in educating me throughout the entire process. Additionally, she was so reassuring and confident in my recovery. I am so thankful I found Between the Hips!!!

What is Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy?

Pelvic floor physical therapy is a specialized type of physical therapy focusing on pelvic dysfunction such as bladder issues, bowel issues, and pelvic pain. Women and men of all ages may benefit from pelvic floor physical therapy. Common issues treated include: 

Urinary incontinence (bladder leakage) with strong urges and/or coughing, sneezing, laughing, or lifting

Fecal incontinence (bowel leakage)

Strong, sometimes uncontrollable urges to urinate or to have a bowel movement

Frequent urination, disrupting your daily schedule

Feeling incomplete bladder or bowel emptying

Constipation

Pelvic pain of any sort, such as pain with gynecological exams, intercourse, or your menstrual cycle

Rectal pain or bladder pain

Coccyx (tailbone) pain, low back pain, hip pain, abdominal pain

Pelvic organ prolapse, meaning you feel pelvic pressure, heaviness or a bulge feeling

Post-gynecological surgery, such as hysterectomy or prolapse repair

During the adolescent, pregnancy, postpartum, and menopausal timeframe

Your pelvic floor physical therapist will first simply talk with you to better understand what is going on. This will include asking you questions about your past medical his­tory, your bladder and bowel health, the details surrounding your pain, along with any other relevant issues and symptoms.

Next, as part of the objective examination, if you agree and if you find it tolerable, your physical therapist will perform an internal pel­vic floor muscle assessment vaginally or rectally. This does not include use of a speculum; it is a one-gloved finger examination of the muscles, fascia, and nerves within the pelvic floor. Sometimes, this is done at a later visit if you prefer to wait. This postponement is okay because the physical therapist can still use the first visit to assess (at a minimum) your spine, belly, and hips.

Believe it or not, physical therapists can actually assess all of your pelvic floor muscles via the vaginal canal and rectal canal. However, if you can’t tolerate an internal muscle assessment due to pain or personal preference, the therapist will do an external assessment as the next best alternative.
