Holistic Treatments

After a thorough evaluation by a specialist doctor and a staff physical therapist, a comprehensive, holistic treatment program is devised for the patient. It is important to note that because similar symptoms can be caused by different underlying problems, each patient’s program must be individualized.

The basic plan involves a combination of internal and external manual therapies aimed at addressing pelvic muscle and nerve dysfunction and/or injury. More invasive therapies (such as trigger point injections, Botox® injections and nerve blocks) are administered as required. Additional holistic components are then added in accordance with the patient’s unique needs. Your assigned doctor and the therapist confer regularly regarding the patient’s progress and adjust the program accordingly.
