Improves my overall mobility and quality of life. “Thank you for referring me to FYZICAL because I so, so, needed to understand my pain – why/how/where. Physical therapy helps me understand my body and pain in ways I wouldn’t otherwise be able to. It gives me hope and relief so I can live my life instead of just day-to-day. Therapy helped me feel like I can make plans, know how to relieve pain at home, and greatly improves my overall mobility and quality of life – thank you!!! This is one of the best ways for me to get my life back.” – A. M.

How do I use them? Start with the lightest colored weight that you are able to maintain inside the vagina for fifteen minutes. You may need to begin using these weights in a seated or lying position depending on strength. When this weight becomes easy to maintain without having to consciously contract the PFM, simply move onto the next, darker colored weight. Research has shown Kegel weight training to be equally effective as traditional PFM strength training at improving stress urinary incontinence and quality of life. The Intimate Rose Kegel Exercise Systemcurrentlyhas theheaviestweightsavailableon themarket and is the only weight set endorsed by the American Physical Therapy Association and utilized in Pelvic Health training courses.


With pregnancy, the body experiences many changes, including postural adjustments, increased load on the pelvic floor, and stretching and thickening of the ligaments. Changes such as these can cause back pain, hip pain and pelvic floor issues. Muscle weakness may also lead

to urinary incontinence and difficulty activating core muscles. Though these are some of the more unpleasant parts of pregnancy, prenatal and postnatal treatments can help your body better prepare for the journey ahead. At FYZICAL , we integrate techniques such as massage therapy and pelvic floor therapy to help make your pregnancy and delivery process as smooth as possible. During the delivery process, you may need to undergo a procedure that might result in a scar, such as a c-section or an episiotomy. These can cause restrictions in the myofascial system of the body. We use specific myofascial and scar-release techniques to eliminate these restrictions and prevent your myofascial system from being further compromised. Some women might also suffer from diastasis recti, also known as abdominal separation. Our physical therapists use the latest evidence- based clinical knowledge in the field to identify and treat this condition. FYZICAL can help mothers deal with pre- and post-natal pains as their bodies experience the effects of pregnancy and childbirth. Our physical therapists will also help in addressing any problems that may arise during this time.
