Common things I've heard (and helped with!) from my clients (you're not alone!)

"I cannot sit for more than 20 minutes at a time because I feel like I'm sitting on a golf ball.  I just want to take my girlfriend out to dinner like a normal person."

"I've always wanted to get fit and become athletic, but I have never felt comfortable in typical gyms and I have no idea where to I haven't."

"I've been suffering from IBS, vulvodynia, fibromyalgia, low back pain, and urinary urgency since I was a teenager.  I've never had a normal life and I'm losing hope that I will."

"I haven't been able to get back to my sex life since having our baby.  I'm in a same-sex relationship and I feel like my providers don't know how to talk to me about this." 

"I had no idea that there was any help for my rectal pain and chronic constipation besides medication and surgeries.  No one has ever explained this to me."

"I've been suffering with low back pain for years and I miss the way weight lifting and higher intensity exercise makes me feel.  My doctors say I should just stick to walking."

"I didn't know that men could have pelvic floor problems too.  I've had pain "down there" for a long time now.  It's been ruining my life."

"I don't want to miss my grandson's graduation, but I'm afraid I will need to use the restroom constantly and then what will I do?"

"I avoid seeing any clinicians as much as possible.  They assume because of how I look that I am heterosexual and live a binary lifestyle.  It makes me feel untrusting and unable to truly discuss my health concerns."

"I'm having a gender affirmation surgery and I want to make sure that my pelvic floor is healthy before and after surgery for the best results.  I've been waiting my whole life for this."

"I just want to find a provider who will listen to me for once.  I've been to every doctor and therapist in the book...and no one has been able to help."

"I have a long history of trauma and abuse and have never felt comfortable addressing my pelvic pain."

"I heard that I shouldn't try any new exercise that I haven't done before now that I'm ________ [insert 'pregnant,' 'too old', 'recovering from a surgery'].


"I was told that most women have a pelvic organ prolapse after giving birth so I just shouldn't lift anything more than 15 pounds.  How can I take care of my child?"

"I'm too old to get in shape.  I was told I have arthritis everywhere so I should just take it easy."
