Our Mission Statement
Your Core Works Physical Therapy utilizes personalized therapeutic interventions to alleviate chronic pain, bring balance, and promote healing to the pelvis, an intimate yet vital part of the human body. Your Core Works Physical Therapy uses specialized techniques to re-route pain through guided breath work, a strengthening of the deep abdominals and low back muscles (the core), an increase in body awareness, and muscle re-education to regain control over pain. Treatment occurs from the inside out (core outward) and from a place of support and connectivity.

Pre & Post Partum
Prevention of pregnancy complications and overall maternal wellness: Injuries can occur more easily due to repetitive strain, poor body mechanics, overall muscle fatigue and the relaxation of ligaments. Regaining core fitness and strength post partum is a vital part of pregnancy that is often forgotten. Many women can benefit from a specialized therapist who can reintroduce old exercises safely and/or reinvent a new program based on the mother’s post partum needs.
Women may see a bulge or pouch in her belly area after pregnancy due to overstretching of the abdominal muscles.
Women may see or feel one of her pelvic organs bulge out through her vagina. This can be due to pressures and ligament laxity during pregnancy and while breast feeding. C-section scars, episiotomy scars/perineal tears Scar tissue can result from incisions that have healed unevenly and bind down. This can restrict movement and even refer bladder pain.
The connection between a woman and her pelvic floor muscles can become disrupted during and after pregnancy. This can lead to a myriad of other problems that can affect a woman’s quality of life.
“It will go away after you give birth”, but what if it doesn’t. Most women who have untreated back pain before pregnancy will most likely experience pain after. Incontinence “Leaking” urine is normal up to 4 weeks post partum. After that time period most leaking should be considered abnormal.
