Do you leak urine with exercise, coughing, sneezing or laughing? Do you have trouble getting to the bathroom in time or feel like you have to go too frequently? Have you tried Kegels without improvement in symptoms? Do you have pain with pregnancy or after abdominal surgery? Do you have pain with pelvic exams, intercourse or with use of personal hygiene products? You’re not alone. Incontinence is common, but common doesn’t mean normal.
Pelvic Health related issues are more common than you know.
We want you to be in control of your bladder. Our pelvic health services can help decrease or eliminate dependency on pads, reduce pain during and after pregnancy, reduce and manage symptoms of prolapse, and relieve pelvic pressure and pain.

While all of our movement experts are trained in treatment techniques for pelvic health conditions, some of our team members have undergone additional training for pelvic health related issues. Those providers are:
During your initial evaluation we will discuss your medical history, concerns you have and goals for treatment.
We will assess how your body moves during typical daily movements such as walking, sitting, standing, squatting, etc., as well as any joint or muscle restrictions that may be contributing to your symptoms.
Then we will provide education about your area of concern and discuss what your plan of care would look like.
“I was having a lot of pain and trouble with walking & doing everyday tasks while pregnant. Kinetic Edge has helped so much. My abdomen has strengthened, and my movement has improved through this pregnancy. It’s helped me from being too tight – which makes my movement more painful & restricted. I’ve been able to remain fairly flexible. Without this, I wouldn’t be able to fully keep up on my daily tasks, keep up with my 2 kids, and maintain an active lifestyle. 5 stars!” – A.M.
