Pelvic Rehab in Monterey
Julie Tanaka, PT
I am a member of a growing community of physical therapists specializing in the treatment of pelvic muscle dysfunction. As physical therapists we are trained and gain expertise in addressing neuromuscular dysfunction throughout the body. In pelvic rehab we have taken this body of knowledge and applied it to the unique structures of the pelvic floor and neighboring areas.
What I love about this approach to addressing dysfunction is that it really does address the dysfunction. We are looking for the role that the muscles and nerves play and how to bring the involved structures closer to "normal". The body has an amazing ability to heal itself when we create the right environment. This is not a passive treatment. The patient is involved in the healing process every step of the way. The treatment is a continuum of peeling off the layers of dysfunction and replacing that dysfunction with function. Whether it is lengthening muscle, strengthening muscle, freeing nerve flow, improving respiration, balancing posture or restoring movement. I will do my part and then you will do yours, on a daily basis. Addressing the dysfunction in this manner will gain you permanent changes in your body and the tools to manage symptoms as they arise.
In 2010 Bonnijane Monson joined my practice after completing her doctorate in physical therapy with a specialty in Pelvic Rehab. Her experience and education have contributed greatly to what we can offer our patients.
