A highly-skilled manual therapist and certified in pelvic floor health, Jasmine Evans, PT, DPT fids great joy in educating and empowering her patients with the awareness and treatment tools needed to regain this vital part of our bodies. 

Pregnancy and childbirth will impact your pelvic health. But rest assured many of these issues are both incredibly common and highly-treatable with pelvic health physical therapy. We strive to educate women about their bodies and empower them to maximize the body’s ability to heal and respond to correct movement patterns! If you have any of the following symptoms you may be a good candidate for physical therapy: Pain in abdomen, pelvic floor or lower back, diastasis recti (separation of abdominal muscles), loss of urine during activity, bladder & bowel changes (with and without activity because it could be urge related rather than stress related), painful scars following vaginal or cesarean deliveries or painful sexual intercourse. The best way to learn more is by scheduling a complimentary 30 minute consultation to see if PT is right for you.
