BioRestore offers specialized Pelvic Floor Therapy to address issues with bladder and bowel issues, incontinence, constipation, pelvic pain, post-partum support, and musculoskeletal aches and pains.

Our pelvic health specialist, Jessica Ekberg – OTR/L, will meet with you personally to understand your personal history and concerns to create a plan of care designed just for you.

Many people believe that issues like incontinence or chronic pain are simply a part of the aging or post-partum process. But with proper treatment, these issues can be resolved, restoring your confidence and well-being.

 

Here are some of the things you may see a pelvic floor therapist for:

 

Some of the treatment techniques we offer include: 

How it works

Your Initial Evaluation

This is the time where we get an opportunity to review not only why you are here, but your personal history, events, past treatments, and your own thoughts about why you are having this
problem. I spend more time on the initial intake, reviewing forms, and talking with you than on any other part of the exam.

Establishing a safe connection is important in helping us navigate these very personal and often rarely talked about issues. Listening to clients and asking the right questions often helps set us on the right path for treatment.

A Comprehensive Assessment

I then perform a full assessment of movement, strength, reflexes, flexibility, balance and palpation of bony landmarks and pain. I will also
look at your posture, alignment, and breathing.

If indicated, there may be an internal pelvic or rectal evaluation to determine the cause of pain, weakness, or incoordination of the muscles causing dysfunctions such as incontinence,
prolapse, or constipation.

An Internal Examination

The internal examination is only performed with your written and verbal consent, explained with a pelvic muscle model first, and can be stopped at any time. You are also welcome to bring someone with you to be present during the examination.

After the evaluation is completed, we discuss the findings and determine a plan of action to help you reach your goals, and when/ if you need to
return for follow up.

Why should I see a pelvic floor therapist?

A pelvic health therapist (Occupational Therapist or Physical Therapist) can help with assessing and alleviating/managing persistent pain and discomfort in the pelvic floor, as well as developing of a personalized approach and strategy for achieving optimal bowel, bladder and sexual function.

What is the pelvic floor?

The pelvic floor is a group of muscles that form a supportive sling at the bottom of the pelvis. These muscles are the foundation for organs like the bladder, uterus, prostate and rectum.

What does the pelvic floor do?

The pelvic floor muscles are working 24/7 and have 5 main duties: first they assist in supporting abdominal and pelvic organs. Next they help with stabilization by working with the core muscles to support and stabilize your hips and trunk, allowing you to maintain an upright posture during functional activity. They help with lymphatic drainage to manage things like bloating. Next they maintain continence by helping the bladder and rectum to open and close both when you need them to and need them NOT to. Lastly, they help with sexual sensation. Often times when the pelvic floor is overused or underused the result is pain or dysfunction in the areas mentioned above.

How often will I need to come back for treatment?

This will depend on the complexity of the condition. Some people will see a pelvic floor therapist once or twice to complete the exam and implement a personalized exercise program, receive education on their condition, and how to manage it. Others may require more sessions in order to successfully treat the condition.

Is an internal pelvic exam a must?

An internal exam is not a must, however, it is helpful for a more accurate diagnosis and treatment of certain conditions.  Each person is different and the plan that is developed is personalized to meet your needs in whatever way you are comfortable.

What if I’m pregnant?

Being pregnant is not a reason to avoid seeing a pelvic floor therapist. In fact there are several benefits to this.

“Isn’t it normal to leak once you get older or after having kids?”

The answer is NO!!!

Dr. Stanizzi is so wonderful. I was able to see the difference between him and some clinics I have visited in the past.... He is unique in many ways, firstly you can sense that human touch, feel his presence in your healing journey. He has alot of expertise in all that he is doing, listens and thorough in his explanations. For the first time I left his office knowing that there is still someone there who cares about my pain and really cares. He is awesome.read more

I had an amazing experience with Dr. Stanizzi. It was nice to work with someone who actually had some knowledge and was... willing to listen and try to come up with some answers as to why I’ve been feeling so out of balance. The “It’s normal to feel like that” from my OBGYN with not even a second thought just felt wrong. I would recommend Dr. Stanizzi to anyone!read more

Dr. Matt Stanizzi did a full blood workup for me and reviewed in such great detail, I was able to learn a lot about my... overall health as well as any deficiencies I had. It is very refreshing to work with a doctor that does not treat you like a number, instead gives you an actual plan based on your specific needs. I am working with Dr. Stanizzi on my overall health, but also more specifically in ways to proactively combat issues that arise when reaching your mid 40's. In my experience, most health care professionals are very limited in their expertise. Dr. Stanizzi has a well rounded breadth of knowledge I have not found anywhere else. I would encourage anyone to meet with him and see for yourself.read more

Jessica Ekberg
OTR/L Certified Pelvic Floor Therapist Certified Restore your core instructor


Hi I’m Jessica Ekberg, I’m an occupational therapist with over 20 years of experience. I have worked with clients of all ages, genders, and with varying diagnoses. I have always loved the body and its amazing ability to adapt, heal, and compensate so we can do the things we need to do on an everyday basis.

For many years I thought that “leaking”, “peeing my pants”, avoiding calisthenics was a “normal” thing. After having 2 kiddos and dealing with my own healing journey I discovered that none of these “issues” were normal nor should anyone have to accept them. We often shy away from talking about bodily functions surrounding pelvic health which has left many people feeling like they are alone and suffering in silence. That was the start of my pelvic health journey as both a patient and a teacher. 

I happened to be running with a friend and she mentioned that she was seeing a pelvic health therapist. First off who knew there was such a thing, and also, I had no idea that so many people struggle with bowel, bladder, and sexual dysfunction – as well as pelvic pain disorders. I discovered first hand the effectiveness of  treatment along with the lack of information available to the millions of people that are trying to manage and “deal with” pelvic floor related issues. 

Fast forward to today and I have overcome bladder dysfunction, back and pelvic pain. I know how valuable good health is for quality of life and my goal is to help you achieve this to allow for a return to optimal functioning as quickly as possible.

Experience highlights

  • 21 years as an occupational therapist
  • Has helped hundreds meet their goal of returning to independence of daily activities with more confidence, less pain, more motion/flexibility, strength, and improved balance.
