The Truth Is...
"We Help Individuals Overcome Pelvic Floor Issues, And Heal Bowel & Bladder Conditions So They Can Be Active and Pain Free Again, Regardless of How Long It's Been"
It’s overwhelming to try to make a decision with all these choices… what will happen if you don’t make the right one?
Most people get stuck trying to make a decision about what to do next. They go days, weeks, months (even years!) without taking action.
When It Comes To Solving Something Serious Like Diastasis Recti…
You must choose the right provider for your health. If you don’t, you could end up getting dangerous surgery (when it was unnecessary) or get stuck worrying about it forever and how it will impact your body.
Getting the “least-invasive”, most natural treatment is VITAL to you getting your core strong again and fixing your Diastasis Recti so it doesn’t stop you from having more babies or cause unnecessary back pain in years to come.
To do that, you have to not just treat the abdominal separation, but have a provider who is willing to figure out WHY it happened in the first place and what’s causing it to linger now. That’s when you’ll get a PERMANENT solution to your problem.
At The Healing Spot Physical Therapy we’ve created a 3 step process to get rid of Diastasis Recti AND make sure it doesn’t cause you unnecessary back pain (or stop you from having more babies if you want…).
Step #1 - We Want To Listen To Your Story
Our medical system is frustrating. You wait weeks, sometimes months, for an appointment, only to get to talk to the doctors for 10 minutes before they have to run to the next patient and you’re left sitting there wondering, “What just happened?”
Even most pelvic floor physical therapy clinics operate this way. They’re not attentive, they’re fast-paced, and your therapist doesn’t have time to actually check things out and tell you how bad (or good!) things are. You’re left with more questions than answers!
This is why our first step is to listen to your story.
After working with lots of women with Diastasis Recti, we know that no two people are alike. Each person has a different body, a different history, different types of abdominal separation and different reasons that it persists after birth.
That is why our first step is to have an open conversation and time for you to tell your story. That way we get a deep understanding of what’s going on not just with your body, but also how it’s impacting your life.
Step #2 - Find Out HOW BAD things are
Many people have a diagnosis, or medical term for what’s going on with their body. Maybe their doctor gave it to them, maybe tests showed the diagnosis, or maybe you found it online.
You could have been told that your only choice was to rest, try certain exercises (that don’t even work!), or get surgery.
Sometimes, those things bring temporary relief, but they’re not addressing what CAUSED the problem in the first place.
Every person’s cause of Diastasis Recti is different. No one has the exact same problem caused by the exact same thing as another person. Even if it started in pregnancy, not all women have the same thing going on after birth that causes Diastasis Recti to linger.
Our goal at The Healing Spot Physical Therapy is to find out HOW BAD things are and what’s contributing to it so not only does your Diastasis go away, it STAYS AWAY!
We understand that you still might be skeptical or unsure if physical therapy is right for you. That’s why we created a free taster session. (Yes! That means the first session is ON US!)
Our Discovery Sessions are meant specifically for those people who are skeptical, unsure, or have even been let down in the past. During the Discovery Session you’ll find out what’s wrong, how long it’s going to take to fix it, and give you peace of mind that your problem can be fixed naturally!
Step #3 - Get Rid Of Diastasis Recti & Keep It From Coming Back
This is when the big transformations occur. We develop a personalized plan that allows you to…
…Get back to exercising without fear of diastasis recti coming back or getting any worse
…Be able to play with your kids and get back to your workouts and lifting things at home and at the gym, without worrying about
whether you’re “doing the right things”
…Get back to your pre-pregnancy lifestyle you love and get back to your life…with confidence
Our best clients are those who are motivated and ready to win back their active lifestyle. (Even if they feel stuck right now!)

“My girl was nearly 11 pounds when she was born, which did quite the number on my body! Two months after birth, I was unable to walk or do much of anything without being in pain. I wanted to be able to carry my girl around, wear her, pick her up without feeling weak, and do normal life things without pain and feeling like my insides were going to fall out.
““I had an 11 pound, 24-inch long baby girl in September 2018. I labored for five days before I gave birth at home to my giant child. Postpartum felt like I had been ran over by a big rig truck and dragged 100 miles down the freeway. During pregnancy, I tried to do as much research possible to prepare myself for the postpartum period, often called the fourth trimester. But as most moms tell first-time moms, there’s not much you can actually prepare for.”
