Trauma informed care for pelvic floor therapy goes beyond traditional approaches, recognizing the profound impact of trauma on pelvic health. This specialized therapy creates a safe and supportive environment where trauma survivors can embark on a journey of healing.
Research has shown that our bodies store stressful or traumatic events and the simplest of things can trigger a trauma response bringing our bodies into the sympathetic nervous system. In fact, 85% of women have reported exposure to at least one traumatic event during their lifetime.
Our pelvic floor physical therapy includes trauma informed care interwoven throughout treatments. We understand that each person and their story is unique. Each person deserves the respect and care to help them feel safe and secure while in our clinic.
