What Makes Reborn Pelvic Health & Wellness Different?
We provide one-on-one care to our patients with our expert pelvic health physical therapists for one hour (or longer) sessions. We utilize many different hands-on (manual therapy) interventions to treat the root cause of your symptoms allowing you to return to living life to the fullest. We focus on things both inside the pelvis and outside the pelvis. We are very holistic in our treatment and provide you with individualized care. Each session builds on another, and you are never doing the same thing. You are never working with someone else. And you are never off on your own doing exercises in a corner. Much different than most ‘traditional’ physical therapy!
We are physical therapists, orthopedic physical therapists and pelvic floor physical therapists. Honestly, we couldn’t get enough and just kept learning knowing we were missing an essential part: THE PELVIS! We are the cream of the crop when it comes to physical therapy because we can literally treat the entire body! How cool is that?
We are the go-to experts on preconception, pregnancy, postpartum and beyond!
The other amazing thing about our treatment philosophy is that we continue with optimal health and wellness. Meaning, rather than what “typical physical therapy” does, stopping once your symptoms are gone or you are 80% better. We continue on into full resolution of symptoms, getting to the root cause and underlying WHY behind your symptoms, build resiliency in your system, and then reach for new goals. Our treatment philosophy allows us to work into performance and optimizing both inside and outside of the pelvic floor, so you can obtain things that you have never thought possible!
What Types Of Conditions Can Be Treated?
Painful bladder syndrome/IC
Pain with intercourse or intimacy
Low back/hip/SI/tailbone pain
And many more!
How Many Visits Will It Take?
Great question, in true physical therapy form… it depends ☺️!
Typically most patients see a significant difference in two-five visits, if not sooner. Most of our patients see us for eight-ten visits to optimize their vagina and live life to the fullest! 🤍 Others love us so much they come back for optimization/maintenance every few months as they achieve performance levels and soar to higher activity and personal bests 🎉.
It all depends on what is going on, how long your symptoms have been bothering you and your goals. Each plan of care is individualized to each person. We treat based on symptoms and what your body needs to find lasting relief for long term benefits.
We typically see patients 1 time a week for 1 hour appointments until symptom resolution (meaning you are no longer having the issues you had when you came in). Then we switch to the “building resiliency phase” of treatment as we “add” back in things that you want to be doing ie. running, jumping, sex, etc. During this phase of treatment we drop down the frequency of visits (every other week, every 3-4 weeks). Once you have added back in everything and are doing well with out symptoms still then you get to transition to the “Optimal Vagina Phase,” meaning you are living life to the fullest without even thinking about your pelvic floor.
Once a patient, always a patient. You carry your pelvis with you your entire life. We are here for you along the whole journey ie) you get pregnant again, you twist your ankle, or have a weird neck kink.
Additionally, we offer flexible scheduling to meet your needs if you are traveling from out of state or > 1 hour away from us.

Do You Take My Insurance?
We are considered an "out of network" company. What that means is, we take payment at time of service and then supply you with a superbill, a detailed medical receipt, to submit yourself to your insurance company for your “out of network physical therapy benefits.” Then your insurance company will reimburse you directly for whatever your personal plan covers.
We also accept HSA/FSA and any other major credit card.
In many cases, the out of pocket expenses for a course of physical therapy will be LESS for services provided at Reborn Pelvic Health & Wellness compared to what is billed at an in network provider.
Being an out of network provider allows Reborn Pelvic Health & Wellness staff to focus all of our energy on patient care, and allows patients to make informed decisions regarding the costs of their health care choices.
Why Are You Out-Of-Network?
We do this for multiple reasons. Primarily, we believe in autonomy of care and that as skilled practitioners, we are the most equipped to decide what care is best for you, rather than your insurance company. Additionally, we believe in efficiency and are best able to do so while working with one client at a time, achieving greater outcomes in less time. Utilizing our undivided attention, we are able to achieve greater outcomes in less time than when managing multiple cases at the same time.
Fortunately, our receipts function as claim forms and can be submitted to insurance for reimbursement to the individual. The claim will go towards your out of network benefits.
What Type Of Payments Do You Accept?
We accept all major credit cards, cash and check. HSA/FSA can also be used to per for clinical services.
A credit card is required to reserve your appointment and payment is required at completion of the appointment.
Do You Have A Cancelation Policy?
Yes, we require 24 hours notice for cancellation without penalty. Cancellations made less than 24 hours prior to an appointment may result in a fee. Appointments that are not cancelled are subject to full charge for the visit.
What Is The Difference Between the $67 Introductory Assessment And A Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy Examination?
$67 Introductory Screening Assessment:This is our introductory screening assessment. It is a 30 minute health and wellness appointment with our expert pelvic floor physical therapist. We will perform a pelvic floor screening protocol questionnaire, assess breathing including a balloon blow up test, assess diastasis recti (abdominal separation), assess posture and assess muscle activation (core and glutes).
Then, if you qualify, we will discuss next steps for pelvic floor therapy.
This assessment does NOT include an evaluation, internal assessment, treatment or plan of care. You CANNOT use HSA/FSA for this appointment.
Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy Evaluation: This is what you would select for a more comprehensive and individualized 1 hour pelvic floor physical therapy evaluation with our expert pelvic floor therapist. This will include a full body movement analysis, full body evaluation, including a deeper dive into your spine, ribs, breathing, abdomen, hips, pelvis, and on down the body to your feet, as well as an external and internal pelvic floor examination, looking at the pelvic floor range of motion, strength, endurance, mobility, scar tissue, prolapse, pressure management and coordination, as well as treatment and an individualized and personalized plan of care. We will then connect all the dots for you to get the root cause of your symptoms so you can get back to living life to the fullest with an optimal vagina!
This is your next step after a $67 assessment, or you can bypass the assessment and do an evaluation right away if you already know you need pelvic floor physical therapy.
This is covered by your out of network physical therapy health insurance benefits.You can also use HSA/FSA money for this!
Please dress in comfortable clothing. We suggest workout clothing, such as a shirt and shorts, for movement and treatment. You can also come in normal clothing and can use a pair of shorts we have :)
What Is The Pelvic Floor?
A group of muscles, nerves, ligaments, and tissues that form a bowl in the bottom of your pelvis.
Pelvic floor physical therapy is a therapy treatment to help address pain, weakness, and dysfunction in the pelvic floor muscles. Both men and women can experience dysfunction with their pelvic floor. Reborn Pelvic Health & Wellness clients receive a private and thorough one hour evaluation by a licensed doctorate of physical therapy with specialized training in the muscles of the pelvic floor. Research shows that strengthening of the pelvic floor muscles can reduce the effects of incontinence, organ prolapse, and many other conditions specific to women. Education is our greatest tool and clients are taught ways to independently manage issues such as bladder retraining, behavior/lifestyle changes, therapeutic exercise and modalities to improve quality of life. Our physical therapists are trained in manual treatment techniques, trigger point dry needling, and therapeutic exercise to address many of the symptoms associated with bowel, bladder and sexual dysfunction as well as return to higher levels of exercise postpartum.
What is really important to know is that physical therapy is the first-line treatment for there conditions before any other interventions should be considered.
What Does The Pelvic Floor Do?
Provides support for your organs
Helps with bowel and bladder control
Has important sexual functions
Acts like a sump pump with movement
Helps stabilize low back, hips and pelvis
What Causes Pelvic Floor Dysfunctions?
Many different things can lead to pelvic floor problems: prior or current hip/low back/tailbone injury, pregnancy/delivery, sexual trauma, hormone changes, stress, car accidents and many more
Should I Cancel My Appointment If I Have My Period?
Nope! You can still come. You are a whole person and we have plenty to work on in the pelvis and outside the pelvis. It doesn't make a difference to us as your provider. If it makes you uncomfortable, we can hold off on anything internal until the next session. We would hate to cancel 1/4 of our patients because they are menstruating...and that is not ok! You deserve BETTER!
What Will The First Visit Include?
We will review your medical history ahead of time and go over a full body movement analysis. After that, we will deep dive into the specifics of your spine, rib cage, breathing, abdominal cavity, hips, pelvis, SI joints and all the way down to your feet. We will then perform, with consent, an external and internal pelvic floor examination. We will be looking through the lens of a physical therapist, at range of motion, strength, coordination, mobility, scar tissue, trigger points, and overall movement systems. With the information we gather we will perform treatment and give you a plan of care to optimize your vagina and get back to living your life to the fullest!
What Is Dry Needling?
In the simplest version, dry needling communicates with your nervous system, restores homeostasis, improves blood flow, decreases pain, improves activation of the muscles and improves range of motion.. this is what we know so far!
We use thin filiform needles (same needles as acupuncture, however it is NOT acupuncture) to stimulate myofascial trigger points, muscles and connective tissue to help manage pain, improve mobility and enhance muscle activation. When there is a trigger point of contracted tissue it creates an environment with decreased blood flow and oxygen which leads to changes in pH (more acidic) and a dumping effect of biochemicals that sits there and creates/signals to the brain that there is pain/discomfort/tightness/etc. We then take a dry needle into the trigger point (the most painful/discomfort, or one that reproduces your pain) to stimulate a local twitch response. The local twitch response helps restore the blood flow and oxygen, balance the pH and clear out the biochemicals that are hanging out in the contracted muscle fiber signaling to your brain. It's a game changer, we go directly to the source!
Should I Cancel My Appointment If I Did Not Do My Exercises?
Nope. We still want you to come! Each session is unique and we can continue to make progress whether you have done your exercises or not. Let us help you continue the momentum forward!
Do I Need A Referral From My Doctor?
Nope! Utah is a fully direct access state, which means by law you do not need a physician referral to go to physical therapy. You can go to whoever you want whenever you want. Wahoo!!!
That being said, we still believe is collaborative care and will communicate with other providers as needed.
Can I Bring My Kids To My Appointment?
We are happy to accommodate your children, we work with a ton of moms! However, we do ask that your child be respectful and able to be with you during your visit in the treatment room. We recommend bringing something to occupy them for 1 hour or get childcare if that is not possible. We want your session to be focused as much on your health and healing as possible.
Should I Do Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy While Pregnant?
Absolutely! We would love to help you optimize your body, pelvis and pelvic floor for birth. As a physical therapist we believe we are an essential part of your birth team, preparing you as much as possible from the physical side of things. Additionally, it helps you get some of the “learning curve” out of the way by helping you become the expert of your own body!
Many of our moms-to-be have wonderful experiences with their birth!
For more information about why it is important and necessary for pelvic floor physical therapy during pregnancy, check out our blog post HERE.
When Should I Start Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy Postpartum?
We typically see our patients 2-4 weeks postpartum. As soon as you feel ready to leave the house and add an appointment to your schedule (or have us come to your house). We do not perform an internal exam until after you have been cleared from your other provider(s) at the 6 week postpartum check up. It is important for your uterus to heal prior to any internal exams.
We believe that rehab postpartum is ESSENTIAL!
When do you start physical therapy for any other musculoskeletal event, like a knee surgery or joint replacement? IN THE HOSPITAL!!!
Our mission is that every pregnant and postpartum person has a pelvic floor physical therapist on their care team.
We can work on so many other things outside of the pelvis immediately postpartum, like breathing, bringing the rib cage back down, connecting back to your core and glutes, body mechanics and neck pain just to mention a few ;).
Do You Treat Men?
Our passion is serving, educating and empowering owners of a vagina. We truly love serving people before, during and after pregnancy.
That being said, we do often see the partners and significant others of our patients for treatment as well. Simply because they see the results and want them too!
Our mission is bigger than the pelvic floor!
