What an interesting interview with physical therapist and pelvic floor health specialist, Dr. Kimberly Bryant. Kim’s areas of expertise include prevention and wellness, pelvic pain, low back pain, prolapse (pelvic pressure), bowel health, pain with intercourse, incontinence, painful menstrual cycles, and prenatal/postpartum care. Her goal is to empower women to take their wellness into their own hands as they discover their personal healing path.
This was not a specialty back when I had children and I think even though this is an area that is now more well known, many women still haven't heard of this or know that this is available. Even lower back issues can be traced to pelvic issues so be sure to reach out to Kim or someone with her training to help you - no matter your age (older or younger) because many times problems happen long after having children and not necessarily immediately post-partum.
Dr. Bryant earned her Doctorate in Physical Therapy from A.T. Still University in Mesa, AZ in 2009. She opened her private practice, Thrive Pelvic Health and Wellness in 2017 to provide holistic rehabilitation and wellness care for women with a focus on pregnancy and postpartum support. She provides in person and tele-health treatment sessions. When away from the office, Kim enjoys spending time with her two young boys, husband, and running out on the AZ mountain trails with friends.
