The Movement Paradigm’s Holistic Physical Therapy is for women who are experiencing pelvic pain, gut disruption, sexual dysfunction, and urinary/fecal symptoms.
We are here to treat you as a whole person while helping you move without leaking, improve your sexual health, and decrease your pain.
Our Women’s Health Program is shifting the paradigm of the current model in women’s health to include all aspects of health. We want to not only treat your symptoms but rather look at all the factors which may have an impact on your emotional, mental, and physical well-being. We strive to identify the underlying causes of your concerns by assessing how all of your modifiable lifestyle factors impact your health including sleep, nutrition, movement, relationships, stress, and your environment.
Your journey to better overall health includes:
Your session will last one hour with follow-ups once a week for the first few sessions. Check-ins to help you progress your program and exercises are important to help you integrate into your daily life.
Root Cause Analysis
We understand how everything is connected from gut health to movement patterns so we can better help you address the root causes of what you are experiencing. When it comes to movement, we use our background as movement and barefoot specialists to integrate foot-to-core sequencing since the foot has strong fascial connections to the pelvic floor. Gut health can also impact the vaginal tissue which can be the root of why you continue to have vaginal pain.
A Holistic Plan
We create with you, a personalized plan addressing your concerns in a timely manner while integrating these lifestyle modifications and movement patterns into your daily life in order to make the biggest impact on improving your overall health.
Our mission is to serve women who are ready to take charge of their health during pregnancy, postpartum, perimenopause, post-menopause, and beyond. We are prepared to help you with your unique life experiences with compassion and care and are equipped to address everything from pelvic health to hormonal imbalances, gut health, nutrition, mindfulness/stress management, women-specific movement, fitness and strength, pain, and injuries, too. We hope to help you become the healthiest, happiest, most confident, and strongest version of yourself.
Episode 03. The RIGHT Way To Poop
Our first session entails reviewing any important follow up questions from your intake forms as well as an in depth movement and strength assessment of the full body. Once the assessment is complete, you will leave with education, lifestyle modifications, and exercises to work on until our next appointment a week later. This will all be provided to you in your note with videos and descriptions.
If you are motivated and ready to take charge of your health you are in the right place. Instead of having you come in multiple times a week we help you create a plan to incorporate these exercises and lifestyle modifications into your daily life to truly make an impact and change your overall well being. But, you can always reach out for a discovery session to make sure we are the right fit for you.
As a patient you may feel this is important to the provider to be able to collect all the right data to help you on your journey. But, we are here to tell you this is not a necessity, even though we are certified and can complete an internal exam upon request. We understand and respect your past experiences and feel it is important to help you feel autonomy and empowerment during your treatment sessions. As trauma informed clinicians we understand the importance of giving every patient the choice to what they would feel is appropriate for her care.
These are great tools used in traditional settings but can be a barrier to you truly connect with the movements of your pelvic floor. In our setting we do not use a biofeedback unit, since this can disconnect the patient from her pelvic floor.
Most patients work with us for a continuous 3 month plan and progress to a monthly check in process to help with accountability.
When it comes to womens health, most immediately think of the pelvic floor. As much as the pelvic floor is important to womens health due to the importance to sexual health, hormones, bowel/bladder function, and movement, we recognize there is more to overall health for women. With the use of our matrix, we address different areas which impact your daily life to help you feel well rounded and have enough tools in your toolbox to tackle the goals you have to take back your health. Instead of looking into one area, we make sure to assess all areas impacting your overall health during our indepth evaluation to really get the full picture of what can be impacting how you feel from gut health, quality of sleep, movements, and so much more.
“I took the 6-week Women’s Health course and began working with Dr. Becky. During the weekly meetings, I enjoyed learning women-specific topics about things such as exercise, diet, and the pelvic floor. After working with Dr. Becky, I felt a better connection with my whole body and love to challenge myself in new ways to move. I would highly recommend this program to connect with your body in ways you never thought possible.”
