Philosophy

Here at Kare Pelvic health our focus is on providing an individualized, multimodal approach to treating patients. To provide the best quality care, each one hour session is performed on a one-on-one basis using a variety of techniques. There is a heavy focus on manual therapy but therapeutic exercise and modalities (dry needling, cupping) are utilized as necessary. 

 

Another goal of Kare Pelvic Health is to help break the stereotypes surrounding pelvic floor dysfunction through educating our patients. We believe knowledge is power and leads to the most successful outcomes. 

Finally, we want to ensure this is a team effort by providing our patients with the tools they need to meet their goals. Patient collaboration is an important component to any Physical Therapy treatment.   

Virtual Consultations 

Not sure if coming into the clinic is for you right now or just have questions regarding your pelvic health? Virtual sessions can be an excellent option to start tackling your pelvic health concerns from the comfort of your own home.​

Whether you are a new mom who has questions on where to start the rehabilitation process or someone who has struggled with pain, virtual consultations can be extremely beneficial. 

What can you expect from a virtual Consultation? We will begin with a basic introduction, discuss the reason you are calling/related history, and any other details or information you find pertinent. This discussion will provide the direction of questioning and what guidance can be provided. The guidance could include possible exercise approaches, habitual changes, education on both anatomy and physiology related to your specific diagnosis, etc. After the consultation you will receive an email summary with everything discussed as well as any additional resources/information that might be necessary.
