The term “pelvic floor” refers to the muscles that lie at the base of the trunk in the pelvis.

Balance & Vestibular Dysfunction
Balance is the ability for you to maintain your center of gravity over your base of support. Quite simply, it keeps you from falling. Your balance system is comprised of your vision, vestibular system in your inner ear, and proprioceptors that provide feedback about your body’s position and movement. Feeling unsteady or dizzy is not normal, regardless of your age, and should be evaluated.
You do not have to live in pain. You may have tried modalities like heat or ice or TENS. You may have tried every pain medication available over-the-counter or by prescription. You may have tried various types of injections. You may have tried a surgery, or worse, more than one. Chronic pain is due to an extra-sensitive nervous system and the way in which the brain is processing information from those nerves. We can teach you how to change all of that, educating you about your symptoms and teaching you how to re-gain control over your life.
Lymphedema is an abnormal collection of fluid beneath the skin, often in one or both arms or legs. The protein-rich substance, lymph, fails to properly drain and re-enter the circulatory system as a result of damaged lymphatic vessels or missing lymph nodes. Damaged lymphatic vessels may occur as a result of an acute injury such as an ankle sprain. Missing lymph nodes are often due to intentional removal in the treatment of cancer. Complete Decongestive Therapy (CDT) is the gold standard in managing lymphedema and is carried out by physical therapists specialized in working with this condition.
