What Can I Expect?
A session with Women’s Health Physical Therapist, Allison Oswald begins with an intimate conversation about your goals, your body and your needs moving forward. From there, Allison dives deep by using education of the core and pelvic floor, to allow you to thoroughly understand how it relates to your body and/or symptoms. Allison will then do a physical examination and provide manual treatment as needed. You’ll walk away with a better understanding of whether or not you need to strengthen or lengthen your pelvic floor, proper breathing mechanics that are beneficial to connecting to your core and functional movements that will help to improve the efficiency of your body through daily life. You’ll receive a customized home program which evolves as your progress continues.
