Did you know that the Pelvic Health and Rehabilitation Center offers a variety of virtual health services?
Often people do not understand their symptoms until they stumble upon our website, blog, or social media channels. Some people have a diagnosis but they do not have a pelvic floor physical therapist locally to help them. Other times people have a pelvic floor physical therapist but for some reason are not getting better or feel stuck in their treatment plans. Others just want another opinion from trusted experts.
Molly Bachmann, DPT recently began offering virtual consultations to the peripartum population. She is excited to offer this service to birthing people around the world. Whether you are pregnant and are interested in learning more about how to prepare your body for birth or need help developing a birth plan and want support in navigating the birthing world, or are postpartum and experiencing symptoms of pain or dysfunction and are not sure what to do, this service is for you.
Jandra Mueller, DPT, MS offers virtual services (for pelvic pain and endometriosis). Jandra has a special interest in endometriosis and pelvic pain and has her Master of Science in Integrative Health and Nutrition. With the growing popularity of digital health, Jandra is able to offer these services to those throughout the United States as well as internationally. Therefore, she is able to help those that would otherwise not have access to a medical provider who can address both their physical complaints as well as underlying contributors to their pain.
Melissa Patrick, DPT, RYT has spearheaded PHRC’s first offering of virtual yoga services. Melissa is both a pelvic floor physical therapist and certified yoga instructor. She combines her knowledge of movement science with her intuitive understanding of the body to guide patients towards developing a compassionate relationship with their body. For those recovering from a wide variety of pelvic health conditions, including pregnancy related pain, our one-on-one virtual therapeutic yoga sessions are designed to complement your physical therapy appointments and help you get back to moving with confidence, all from the comfort of your own home.
PHRC Co-founders Elizabeth Akincilar, MSPT and Stephanie Prendergast, MPT primarily offer virtual consultations for complex pelvic pain syndromes such as pudendal neuralgia, vulvodynia, and endometriosis. Additionally, Elizabeth has a special interest in male pelvic pain/chronic nonbacterial prostatitis and neuropathic pelvic pain, whereas Stephanie has a special interest in menopause and Interstitial Cystitis/Painful Bladder Syndrome.
Over the last 2 years we have been honored to assist hundreds of people from around the world who were struggling with pelvic health and were unable to receive care locally or in-person due to the pandemic. We look forward to continuing this program to help folks navigate their health concerns and spread the word about pelvic health.
If you think you would benefit from a virtual consultation with one of our experts, you can schedule an appointment directly via our website.
