Why Pelvic Rehab?

Pelvic physical therapy is a specialty within the field of physical therapy. Pelvic rehabilitation physical therapists are experts in treating bowel, bladder and sexual concerns.

What is the pelvic floor?

The pelvic floor is a group of muscles that forms a supportive sling at the bottom of the pelvis.

What does the pelvic floor do? What is the purpose of the pelvic floor?

The pelvic floor is made up of muscles and other tissues that form a sling from the pubic bone to the tailbone.

I was diagnosed with Pudendal Neuralgia and my doctor send me to Falguni Vashi. This condition is not easy to discuss and can be very embarrassing. Falguni was concerned about my well-being and took the time to discuss my issues. Falguni explained things to me so I could understand and helped me with lifestyle changes, and by the fourth appointment, my symptoms were getting better and less frequent. By the 6th visit, I was 80% better. Falguni truly cares for her patients. I am truly grateful to her and her treatment has made such a change in my life that I am starting to feel like my old self again. I can in all honesty say that she saved me from this debilitating illness.

I met Falguni 2 years ago, when I was 2 years post-partum, I had been suffering from low-back pain and a strained feeling in my stomach muscles. I was feeling discouraged as both my PCP and OB/GYN seemed to think these were normal side effects from having 2 c-sections. Falguni's warmth and professionalism put me at ease right way. Falguni clearly has a true passion for helping people improve their pelvic health. She is experienced, knowledgeable and attentive. Falguni's recommendations were easy to follow and gave me relief from the start. Her kindness and sense of humor would always make me leave feeling lighter than how I felt upon arrival.

Over the past 11 months, I have been under the exceptional care of Falguni Vashi.  Falguni is extremely knowledgeable, compassionate, kind, and easy to talk to.  When I met Falguni, I had just undergone a full hysterectomy and partial removal of my colon due to ovarian cancer.  I was in a very bad place physically and emotionally.  My physical issues ranged from urinary and bowel issues, back and abdominal pain, and so much more.  Throughout our time together, Falguni was instrumental in my recovery, and I am forever grateful to her for all that she did for me.  Falguni truly cares about her patients and is willing to help them in any possible way.
