Motion offers unique and highly specialized treatment of pelvic floor disorders to both women and men. Commonly affecting women, pelvic floor disorders can be a result of pregnancy and post-partum changes that manifest as difficulty with bowel, bladder, and sexual function; pain in and around the pelvis; diastasis rectus abdominis; or pelvic organ prolapse. We believe that all people who have delivered a baby (vaginally or via cesarean section) should have access to a pelvic floor physical therapist to optimize function of the core/pelvic floor muscles to return to an active lifestyle without fear of leakage, prolapse, diastasis rectus abdominis (DRA), or pain.
Motion has partnered with OBGYN West (Eden Prairie location) to offer these invaluable services to women in the same space where they receive their regular gynecological and obstetrics care. Our hope is to make this element of post-partum self-care easier for women to access as they navigate the physical, emotional, and social demands of motherhood.
With our close relationship with OBGYN West, we are able to help patients collaboratively with seamless communication and back and forth referrals for patients. It is common that we share patients to make sure their concerns are being addressed as a whole person.
Athletes and non-athletes of all ages and genders can also experience pelvic floor disorders despite not having had a pregnancy. Below are some of the more common diagnoses we treat:

- Sexual dysfunction/pain
- Abdominal pain
