Pelvic Pain

Pelvic Therapy San FranciscoEven though pelvic dysfunction is being recognized more and more, many practitioners do not recognize that painful urination, painful intercourse, pain in the pelvic region with sitting or painful bowel movements may be the result of muscle imbalance!

Pelvic dysfunction is addressed with a comprehensive look at the conditions of strength, flexibility and coordination of the muscles within and surrounding the pelvis including the pelvic floor (levator ani), superficial perineal muscles, abdominals, back muscles, hip muscles and the other leg muscles that attach to and affect the pelvis.

"I struggled with pelvic/vaginal pain for over four years — limiting my ability to have intercourse and get pregnant. Despite several attempts to relieve the problem through a variety of treatments, I had no success in solving the problem until I met Amy. She worked with me to tackle this very intimate and unique challenge in an exceptionally personal, respectful and sensitive manner. Amy customized therapy to specifically address my challenges and help me to achieve my goals. This spring, my husband and I welcomed a healthy baby boy through a vaginal delivery — a miracle I didn't think possible a year ago. Today, thanks to Amy's support, professionalism and deep knowledge of this issue — often overlooked and misunderstood by the medical community — I am living pain free!"
