Special Programs through our Platform of Care

Are you frustrated with pain or ongoing tension, or feelings of pressure? Are you confused by symptoms that don’t respond to Kegels or feel guilty about not doing those vintage exercises? Or perhaps you have “tried PT” and haven’t felt it worked for you or addressed your needs. This doesn’t mean you failed to do things right or enough.

Do you have pain or difficulty releasing your muscles for emptying your bladder or bowel, or for being sexual with your partner? Do you need to avoid straining due to loss of support, such as prolapse?  Are frequent toilet trips disturbing your activities or sleep patterns? Do you ever experience tension at other areas, such as at the jaw, shoulders or spine?

Or perhapys you want to update what you know about pelvic health and want to train in ways that enhance your general fitness.

Tried other PT or modality treatments? The problem is you may not have had a program of home training that was right for you, including how to avoid frequent flares of problems.

We have special programs that go beyond managing symptoms. We help you reach your goals by including how to reduce tension, to reduce pain, prevent fatigue and build endurance.

What is different about us? 1) We have evolved to provide care in alternative ways than traditional western medicine. 2) Our flat-rate programs focus on your goals for a period of time and are customized for your needs.

Pat’s delivery of care combines coaching and digital training with virtual and clinic visits.  Some clients also participate in our  Group Workshops, for training and education that doesn’t require all 1:1.

Pelvic Health Platform of Care: 90 Days to jump-start your goals!

  • Clients don’t need to wait to have questions answered or to progress between sessions.
  • We go beyond the local pelvic muslces to integrate how your muscles, position and breath work together.
  • You can train through enjoyable dynamic movement flows and exercise groupings that can be in a chair, on a  yoga ball, or in standing or on a mat.
  • Muscle calming is an important part of training and is different than stretching. This interrupts tension and assists muscles release.

Platform of Care FAQs

Who provides the services in these programs?

Most of the program training, videos and coaching is with Pat, though there may be some options for sessions with Laura.

Do I need a new referral from my medical provider?

Our services may combine physical therapy and what is considered outside of traditional medicine as wellness. You may start and continue physical therapy treatment in Virginia through what is called direct access for these programs. However, your therapist may recommend you consult with your physician or other medical provider..

Our wellness programs also do not require a referral from a medical provider.

Will I be able to send in receipts to go toward an insurance deductible?

These flat-rate programs overlap treatment and wellness sessions, digital content and messaging or phone conversations with the therapist.  These services are not separated by treatment codes and are not eligible for insurance reimbursement.

Program Testimonials:

“Pat truly cares about her patients and has learned a variety of techniques to help reduce pain and strengthen muscles. I have learned about how the pelvic floor muscles work, how to complete a variety of exercises, gained an understanding of the science of pain, yoga, relaxation techniques, and biofeedback. She has given me soo many strategies to help me strengthen my muscles and relieve pain. I will keep note of everything I have learned and continue to use it for the rest of my life. The online videos, live classes, and visual notes for exercises have been extremely helpful to me and I am thankful that I decided to do the three month online/in person program with Passages Physical Therapy.” -JM

“I highly recommend Passages PT for anyone looking to improve their pelvic floor wellness! After having my baby, I struggled with pelvic floor pain and pressure, and worried that I wouldn’t be able to get back to my usual activities. The physical therapist working with me provided incredible expertise on the science of pain and how our pelvic floor works and heals as well as encouragement and practical individualized exercises as we worked towards restoring my pelvic floor! I saw nearly immediate improvement with her help as well as growth and improvement over the course of months. Thanks Passages PT for your help!” – DH

“Pat is so knowledgeable! Every woman needs to know about the importance of pelvic floor and postural muscles- its not always about making them stronger but using them the right way! I was so discouraged- so many doctors and specialists could not help me target my hip/back/shoulder pain. If you struggle with unexplained hip/back/pelvic pain — please check out what Pat and Passages has to offer!!!!!” -ML

“When I came to Pat, I had just gotten over my first major bout of pelvic area pain (tension, stress, and clenching related). I was beginning to heal, but didn’t have the tools to help me do so properly. Working with Pat, I’ve been able to find the right exercises and stretches to get things working together again. After working with her for a few months, I’m pain-free the vast majority of days (and when I do have pain, it’s almost always related to a specific trigger, and the tools Pat taught me help me get back to my new normal more quickly). I highly recommend men with pelvic pain working with Pat.” -RC
