Real Time Ultrasound (Rehabilitation Ultrasound)
You have heard the saying "A picture is worth a thousand words"? We are one of the only Physical Therapist groups in Western PA using Real Time Ultrasound (RTUS) to assess and retrain musculoskeletal problems. This form of feedback allows you and your therapist to see what the muscle and connective tissue is doing, and assess cues and techniques to create optimal patterns. Among other areas, we utilize RTUS to assess and retrain:
- Pelvic Floor dysfunction, including incontinence.
- Prehab (training BEFORE surgery) prior to prostatectomy.
- Diastasis Rectus Abdominus and abdominal retraining.
- Musculoskeletal retraining in the hip and pelvis.
Pediatric Incontinence and Pelvic Floor Problems
Incontinence or leakage (urinary or fecal) in children may occur when the pelvic floor muscles are not working together with the rest of the trunk and "core" muscles. The signals with bladder and/or bowel and the normal emptying reflexes become disrupted(or "mixed-up") which can lead to a persistent pattern of emptying or lack of sensation of fullness and incomplete emptying. Leakage during the day or the night can be embarrassing for your child, and might cause them to limit friendships and activities or to be stressed when in social settings and school. It is important to remember that leakage and pelvic floor problems are not your child's fault, nor yours, and there should not be any shame! You may have been told that your child will "outgrow" daytime leakage and bedwetting, it is because of "deep sleeping", or that they are simply acting out. The research tells us that this is not the case. If you are searching for answers, please contact us. We will work with your child, you and your physician to asssit your child!
Pelvic Floor problems in children and teens that we help with:
- Bedwetting and Daytime Leaking
- Incomplete Emptying
- Giggle Incontinence
- Pelvic Pain
- Encopresis and Constipation
- Incontinence with Sports
There is help through Physical Therapy and specialized retraining, and Rebecca treats and works with children. Please contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 412-259-5342 to discuss your concerns and the next steps towards full continence for your child.
EmbodyPhysioYoga Therapy and Classes

MTY is a form of integrated and functional medicine delivered by a medical professional who has studied with and recieved advanced certification in Medical Therapeutc Yoga. It provides a new model for fitness and rehabilitation that helps you address health and wellness in a simpler and more holistic way. EmbodyPhysioYoga Therapy benefits everyone, whether you are a patient with pain, joint/spine problems, pelvic floor concerns, or other health concerns, or are seeking a prevention-driven and holistic health and wellness program.

Utilizing your history and our evaluation, we combine yoga and physical therapy as tools to treat and to help you meet your goals for improved total body health and wellness. The focus is on YOU, your health needs, and your goals--not on your medical diagnosis. Click here for more information.

If you are unsure if you should first work with us on an individual basis to address specific problems or attend a class, please contact us to discuss your concerns. If you would like to develop a yoga or exercise practice, but do not want to do so in a class, please contact email@example.com about individual yoga and exercise sessions to meet your needs.
Programs and Care for Moms-To-Be and New Moms
Pregnancy and Childbirth bring about many changes in the body, including soft tissue lengthening, strength and coordination changes, and postural alignment challenges. All women benefit from guidance and help during pregnancy and after delivery as they learn to re-connect with their bodies after giving birth. Some of the things that we evaluate and treat during pregnancy and after birth:
- Pelvic Ring Pain (pubic symphysis, SI, and "sciatica")
- Diastasis Rectus Abdominus (DRA)
- Painful episiotomy scar or C-section scar
- Urinary incontinence
- Back, neck, and joint pain
- Painful intercourse"
- "My Doctor says I'm fine, but I don't feel fine". If you are not sure what is "normal", please contact us.
Preparing to give birth takes 40 weeks. As your body recovers from this journey, we can help you regain strength and resume exercises and activities with fewer concerns. Click here for more information
