MYOFASCIAL RELEASE PAIN MANAGEMENT

Myofascial release is a gentle hands on procedure. It involves a sustained pressure applied to the tissue over a prolonged period to allow the fascia to elongate. By releasing the fascia, using myofascial release techniques, pain is reduced, and mobility is improved.


You and your therapist will complete a thorough client interview including discussion of your goals.  After this, your therapist will complete a full assessment and then develop a specific treatment plan to work toward achieving your goal.

PRE & POSTNATAL CARE

35 percent of new mother’s experience urinary incontinence following childbirth, and 20 percent of first-time moms experience severe pelvic floor muscle injury after a normal pregnancy and delivery. Pelvic Floor Health is more than just doing Kegel exercise.

Prenatal – Your therapist will help you prepare your inner core and pelvic floor to assist in a healthy pregnancy and to help prepare for a healthy delivery.


Postnatally – Your therapist will teach you strategies to optimize your health and improve your pelvic floor and inner core strength for a return to pelvic health and return to full participation in activities of daily life.

DRY NEEDLING

Dry needling can be used for a wide variety of musculoskeletal issues, such as shoulder, neck, heel, hip, and back pain.

The goal of dry needling is to reduce pain.  Dry needling is rarely a standalone procedure and often combined with other modalities/interventions to help you reach your NEXT LEVEL!

INCONTINENCE

Incontinence is due to an incoordination of your pelvic floor muscles. You will benefit from a pelvic floor therapy consult with our specialists at Next Level Therapy.

Pelvic floor therapy will address muscle dysfunction, educate you in the tools needed to regain your inner muscular balance and strength, and empower you to return to a full and complete quality of living.

DIASTASIS RECTI

Diastasis recti (DR) is the partial or complete separation of the rectus abdominis, or “six-pack” muscles, which meet at the midline of your stomach. This is very common during and after pregnancy.

If you’re experiencing any of the symptoms below, contact us for an evaluation:

- low back pain

- poor posture

- constipation

- bloating

Through therapeutic intervention,  your pelvic health therapist can educate you in the proper method to regain your inner core strength,  decrease symptoms related to your DR, and instruct you in nutrition to promote healing.

DYSPAREUNIA

Painful sex is often a topic that patients are afraid to discuss. Take the time for yourself and come meet with us at Next Level Therapy.  You will find a safe and comfortable environment to have this discussion and learn how education can elevate your mind and body.

There can be numerous causes that lead to Dyspareunia.  The causes can be biomechanically based, psychosocially based, or a combination of both.  At Next Level Therapy, we will complete a full evaluation of your entire self to help in determining the cause and the correct treatment approach.

There are numerous options and methods for treatment.  We will work as a team, patient and provider, to determine your best method to assist in your return to pleasurable pain free intimacy.

Cupping Treatment

CUPPING

“Where there’s stagnation, there will be pain. Remove the stagnation, and you remove the pain.”

Cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which a therapist puts special cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction.   Cupping is not new and is currently used in traditional medicine.  People get it for many purposes, including to help with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation and well-being, and as a type of deep-tissue massage.

PELVIC ORGAN PROLAPSE

Often due to weakness or incoordination of our pelvic floor muscles, we may have a pelvic organ prolapse. 

There are three main types: 

- prolapse of your rectum (Rectocele)

- prolapse of the bladder (Cystocele)

- prolapse of the uterus   (Uterine Prolapse)


The causes can be many. Some reasons could be:  

- You could have weakness associated with childbirth that leads to a prolapse.

- You might be an avid runner or weightlifter and due to an incoordination of pelvic floor muscles you have experienced a pelvic organ prolapse.

- Maybe hormonal changes in your body has caused changes to your tissue and put you at risk for prolapse.
