Hormonal fluctuations impacting pelvic floor functionality throughout a woman’s life.

Traumas such as falls, auto accidents, surgical side effects, or unpleasant sexual experiences contributing to pelvic floor dysfunction, leading to pain and/or incontinence.

Some women and girls may be born with excessively tight muscles, causing pain and incontinence.

Conditions like endometriosis, interstitial cystitis (painful bladder syndrome), and pudendal neuralgia commonly associated with pelvic pain, painful sex, and incontinence.

Have You Ever Been Given Advice Like:
The Reality Is...

It’s crucial to recognize that medicine, surgery, and injections are not your only options. While your doctor may present them as the only choices, there are alternative approaches that can address your concerns and provide relief.

“The Virtual PhysioSpecializes In Helping Individuals Who Experience Issues Such As Urinary Leakage, Painful Sex, Unresolved Low Back Pain, Or Abdominal Separation (Also Known As A “Mummy Tummy”) Regain The Ability To Participate In Their Favorite Activities Without Relying On Pills, Pads, Or Surgery.”

Selecting the right healthcare provider for your needs is crucial. If you don’t, you run the risk of undergoing unnecessary surgery, becoming dependent on medications or painkillers, or living with progressively worsening symptoms for the rest of your life.

Opting for the “least-invasive” and most natural treatment is essential to address your leakage, abdominal separation, pelvic floor problems, or postpartum hip/back/pelvic pain and prevent their recurrence in the future.

Working with a provider who understands the interconnectedness of the body is vital for your recovery. Our bodies undergo remarkable transformations throughout our lives, and addressing changes in the neck, back, diaphragm, core, pelvic floor, pelvis, posture, strength, and overall body usage is necessary for full recovery. It goes beyond just performing Kegel exercises.

To achieve a complete recovery, it’s important not only to treat the symptoms but also to work with an expert who is willing to investigate the root cause of your symptoms and dysfunction. This is when you will receive a long-term solution to your problems.

The Virtual PhysioHas Developed A Comprehensive Three-Step Process To Eliminate Your Postpartum Symptoms And Ensure You Never Have To Deal With Them Again.
STEP 1 - WE WANT TO HEAR YOUR STORY

We understand the frustrations that come with our healthcare system. Waiting weeks, or even months, for an appointment only to have a brief conversation with a doctor who rushes through the appointment can leave you feeling bewildered and unheard.

Unfortunately, this rushed approach is common in many physical therapy clinics as well. They operate in a fast-paced manner, lacking attentiveness, and the therapists often don’t have enough time to learn about your specific goals or provide personalized care. That’s why we do things differently!

At The Virtual Physio, our first step is to truly listen to your story.

We recognize that every person is unique, especially when it comes to postpartum issues. Each individual has a distinct body, history, and set of pain and symptoms. That’s why we prioritize open and meaningful conversations. We want to gain a thorough understanding of not only what’s happening in your body but also how it’s affecting your daily life.

By taking the time to listen and learn about your experiences, we can lay the foundation for a tailored and effective treatment plan. Your story matters to us, and we believe it is crucial in providing the care and support you need.

STEP 2 - DETERMINE THE UNDERLYING CAUSE OF YOUR SYMPTOMS

Many individuals have received a medical term or diagnosis for their bodily issues. It could have been provided by a doctor, identified through tests, or even discovered online. Terms like prolapse, Diastasis Recti, Pelvic Floor Dysfunction, Incontinence, Sacroiliac (SI) Joint Pain, or Hip/Back/Pelvic Pain may have been associated with your condition.

You may have been told that your only options were to rest, take medication, or simply wait it out. While these approaches might offer temporary relief, they fail to address the root cause of the problem.

The cause of pain or symptoms varies for each individual. No two people have the exact same problem caused by the same underlying factors.

At The Virtual Physio, our objective is to identify the root cause of your specific issue so that not only does your pain subside but it also remains resolved in the long term.

We understand that you may still have doubts or reservations about Integrative Physical Therapy. That’s why we have introduced the free Discovery Visit. Yes, you read it right! The first session is entirely on us!

Our Discovery Visits are specifically designed for individuals who are skeptical, unsure, or have experienced disappointment in the past. During the Discovery Visit, you will gain insight into what is causing your symptoms, how long it will take to address them, and most importantly, you will build confidence in the fact that your problem can be resolved naturally!

STEP #3 - ELIMINATE THE PROBLEM & AVOID FUTURE RECURRENCE

This is the stage where significant transformations occur. We develop a personalized plan that empowers you to…

…resume exercising without the fear of experiencing pain, stiffness, or bladder control issues – yes, even activities like running and jumping!

…engage in playtime with your children, effortlessly lifting and carrying them without any difficulties.

…reclaim intimacy in your relationships without the worry of discomfort or pain.

…rediscover your favorite active lifestyle, whether it’s yoga, running, tennis, or any other activity that brings you joy.

…regain your strength, confidence, and even a sense of sexiness as your body heals from Diastasis Recti/Abdominal Separation and restores full core strength.

Our ideal clients are those who possess the motivation and eagerness to reclaim their active lifestyles, even if they currently feel stuck.

If you’d like to learn more about our availability and pricing before committing to a visit, we’re more than happy to provide you with that information. Simply ask us about availability and cost.

Remember, you don’t have to give up the activities and family lifestyle you enjoy due to problems that can be resolved.
