Client Success Story

Post mastectomy, a patient came to Core with chest and shoulder pain after implant removal surgery. She was struggling to reach her arms and upper body without feeling pain. 

She was paired with Kerri, one of our PT's who specializes in Women's Health, and was able to receive manual therapy which included myofascial release, scar massage, and joint mobilizations.

The patient was able to make steady progress and vastly improve her range of motion with these techniques and exercises Kerri recommended. She was thrilled to find her strength returning and her function improving! 

Client Success Story

Pelvic health issues can plague many people but they’re rarely discussed. We want to share one of our success stories with you in hopes that you’ll know there’s hope for healing if you are suffering from pelvic health problems. 

We had a woman come to Core in her fifties who was referred because of urinary incontinence. She was experiencing leakage in general, but complete inability to control her bladder when a coughing attack hit, which often came unexpectedly. Because of this, she had to wear light pads when going to work or if she was going to work out. Bending forward irritated her reflux which made her cough. 
In her evaluation, her PT discovered she was able to control her pelvic floor muscles fairly well but couldn’t do so for long periods of time. While evaluating the knee to chest motion, the patient experienced reflux which then worsened after lying down. After her evaluation, it was determined that she had decreased resilience in her left hip and tightness in her abdominal and pelvic muscles. 

During her treatments, we followed the thread of problems with reflux causing coughing to determine that it was the main cause of her urinary leakage. We also found issues around her neck and throat muscles. Her PT used myofasical release techniques in her neck and throat and visceral manipulation to improve tissue mobility significantly. But most importantly, through treatment, the patient had decreased reflux and coughing overall. This meant she was able to decrease use of reflux medication and experience fewer episodes of urinary leakage. 

She also made progress with her pelvic floor muscle function. She was able to decrease her use of pads and experienced minimal leaking during any coughing after her last visit. Pelvic health can and should be treated. We are here for you in any way we can.
