Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy

Verde Valley Myofascial Release offers a specialized treatment approach to Men’s and Women’s Health specifically treatment of the pelvic floor as it relates to the whole body.  All of the therapists at Verde Valley Myofascial Release have advanced training in specific anatomy and treatment related to the female and male pelvis. Our training includes both didactic and hands on lab technique courses aimed at in depth thorough evaluation and treatment of internal and external structures of the pelvic floor.

Manual therapy techniques, primarily Myofascial release, are the primary treatment tools utilized in our treatment approach. Our one on one approach allows us to easily identify postural and movement patterns which may be contributing to the problem being treated. Correction of these movement and postural patterns via specific strengthening, body mechanics and postural education is an important component to the treatment.
