Why Maternal Physical Therapy?

 

Maternal physical therapy is an early and preventative health model to help mothers identify pre-existing problems, restore the pelvic floor and abdominal muscle function, and prevent future pelvic, spine, and hip dysfunction and pain.
While she continues to treat pelvic health concerns of all genders, her outreach as a clinician now focuses on the prenatal and postpartum populations. "For years, I have listened to my older patients with bladder, bowel, and prolapse issues say they wish they had started therapy as a new mother rather than a grandmother.  This needs to change."

Testimonials

Woman in glasses white top throwing confetti

This therapy has changed my days for the better.  I'm no longer running to the bathroom every 45 minutes.  I'm not getting up 3-4 times anymore, only once.  I am very satisfied with the result of my treatment. This clinic is great!

I am 100% better than when I started therapy.  My pregnancy pain was so  debilitating, that I couldn't work.  I'm so very thankful that my doctor took my pain issues seriously and referred me to Dr. Heather.

I didn't think I could return to the gym after my prolapse diagnosis.  Dr. Rader helped me heal on the inside so I could get back to the workouts I love.  Plus, now I no longer leak when I lift my toddler!  Thank you Dr. Rader!

Pelvic Dysfunction can steal your hope.

 

Pelvic physical therapy can give it back.  Many pelvic and abdominal problems are related to musculoskeletal challenges.  While you can be cured of a disease or infection, you can only heal from muscle dysfunction. Without ongoing self-care, weakness or poor flexibility will return, along with your old symptoms.  Dr. Rader will teach you strategies for symptom relief today and arm you with self-care solutions for lifelong symptom control.

"Dr. Heather Rader changed the way that I view and deal with my pelvic pain. She gave me the knowledge and tools to assess, confront, and overcome a sometimes-disabling condition. Her TED Talk made me cry. She is amazing!"
