What Causes Pelvic Floor Dysfunctions?

What Types Of Dysfunctions Can Be Treated?
Painful bladder syndrome/IC
Pain with intercourse or intimacy
Low back/hip/SI/tailbone pain
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!
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 🎉.
Additionally, we offer flexible scheduling to meet your needs.
Do You Take My Insurance?
Yes, we accept all insurances except for Medicare plans.
We are an "out of network" company. What that means is…whatever your out of network benefits are for physical therapy will be covered under your insurance plan.
We also accept HSA/FSA cards.
We take payment at time of service and supply you with a detailed receipt, or what is called a ‘superbill,’ to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement.
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 ROM, 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!
Why Should I Come To Reborn Instead Of Another Pelvic Physical Therapist?
We provide one-on-one care with our patients with our expert pelvic health physical therapists for one hour (or more) sessions. We utilize many different interventions to treat the root cause of your symptoms allowing you to return to living life to the fullest. Most of the time these are 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. Much different than most ‘traditional’ physical therapy!
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 which leads to changes in pH (more acidic) and a dumping effect of bio chemicals 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, balance the pH and clear out the bio chemicals 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.
