Postural assessment of the entire body with special attention to balance within the pelvis.
How it Works
Full Body Evaluation
At Pelvic Health Support appointments will be 60 minutes long. The first appointment will allow us to focus specifically on the pelvic issue at hand. Because the pelvis does not exist in isolation, your initial consultation will also include a full body evaluation. Have you thought about how you distribute the weight of your body across your feet? Do you lock your knees? Do your hips always feel tight? Does your pelvis tip forward or jut out? Are your shoulders severely protracted? Are your shoulders level with each other? Does your head sit evenly on top of your shoulders; neither hanging forward nor craning up?
Through a full body evaluation and a complete medical, surgical and social history, we will learn how your job and regular daily activities affect your posture, gait and pelvis. Based on what we discover, Kathy will develop the appropriate plan for your body. This plan will include gentle strengthening and stretching exercises, as well as self-myofascial release techniques to improve your overall functioning throughout your day. These new skills can help with everything from your regular exercise routine to the typical activities of daily life.
It can be difficult to talk about pelvic pain. It’s often hard to even pick up the phone to make that first appointment! Kathy offers a unique understanding of this, both as a patient and as a medical provider. She is committed to providing a safe and supportive environment, away from the traditional medical office or hospital, where you can feel comfortable to begin or continue your healing process.
At Pelvic Health Support, our experienced Family Nurse Practitioner provides a unique approach to overall pelvic health. We want to take care of you directly and have made a conscious decision not to accept insurance. Our goal is to develop the appropriate treatment plan based on your needs, without restrictions imposed by your insurance company.
We are happy to supply you with an ICD-10 code and NPI number for your use, if requested.
