Tension Release

Chronic tension in pelvic muscles can lead to pain and dysfunction. Dry needling induces local twitch responses, promoting muscle relaxation and better blood flow.

Pain Reduction

Pelvic issues often cause debilitating chronic pain. Dry needling triggers the release of endorphins, providing immediate relief and aiding in long-term pain management.

Improved Muscle Function

Pelvic muscle dysfunction can cause incontinence and sexual challenges. Dry needling enhances muscle function by correcting activation patterns, coordination, and strength.

Blood Flow and Healing

Dry needling boosts blood flow to treated muscles, delivering vital oxygen and nutrients for tissue repair and healing.

understanding visceral manipulation

Visceral manipulation is a specialized form of manual therapy that focuses on restoring movement and function to the organs and tissues within the pelvis. Unlike traditional approaches that target only muscles and joints, visceral manipulation recognizes the interconnectedness of the entire body, including the organs.

Our pelvic floor therapists understand that the organs within the pelvis, such as the bladder, uterus, and rectum, can become restricted in their movement due to various factors such as surgery, trauma, inflammation, or chronic tension. These restrictions can lead to a range of symptoms, including pelvic pain, urinary dysfunction, constipation, and even sexual dysfunction.

Therapy Techniques

Our pelvic floor therapists are trained in a variety of manual therapy techniques designed to address a wide range of issues, including:

Tissue Mobilization

Gentle manipulation of soft tissues to release tension and improve flexibility in pelvic floor muscles.

Myofascial Release

Techniques aimed at releasing tightness and restrictions in the connective tissue surrounding the pelvic organs, promoting better mobility and function.

Joint Mobilization

How Visceral Manipulation Works

During a visceral manipulation session, our therapists use gentle, hands-on techniques to assess the mobility and function of your internal organs.

By carefully palpating and listening to the subtle movements of your organs, we can identify areas of restriction or dysfunction.

Once identified, our therapists apply precise, targeted pressure to release tension and restore optimal movement to the affected organs. This can help alleviate symptoms and promote overall pelvic health by improving circulation, reducing inflammation, and restoring the natural balance within your body.
