A Personal Message From Specialist Physical Therapist,
Specialist Physical Therapist
❓ Are you worried about constipation that doesn’t go away no matter how much fiber you eat or water you drink?
❓ Are you having trouble making plans with your family and friends and are missing out on enjoying life because you don’t know when you might need to find a bathroom quickly?
❓ Are you frustrated that you can’t figure out what to eat because there is no pattern for when you have problems?
❓Are you still looking for a long-term solution so you can confidently plan your perfect day?
If you answered “Yes” to any of these questions, you are in the right place!
Many women with Falls Church and Arlington suffer unnecessarily with chronic constipation or IBS because they’re told…
⚠️ Just “eat more vegetables” or “drink more water” and it’ll be fine (then months later they’re still suffering…)
⚠️ You need to get over your “bashful bowels.”
⚠️ If you take Colace or Imodium or Dulcolax or…fill in the blank… you’ll be fine.
⚠️ I don’t know what’s wrong with you and I have run out of treatment options.
OR maybe you are too embarrassed or ashamed to tell anyone you are experiencing any problems with your digestive system.
The truth is:
✅ Eating more vegetables or drinking more water may help, but after a few weeks or days things can go back to being awful….(I bet you’ve already experienced it!)
✅ Most of us never learned the best way to sit on the toilet or how to use are abdominal muscles to help us have an “easier movement.”
✅ Long-term use of laxatives slow the bowels down over time and can cause a lot of other problems with your body.
✅ Certain types of exercise and self-massage techniques have been proven to effectively treat chronic constipation and IBS.
“At Nancy Branberg Physical Therapy, We Specialize In Helping Women of all ages who are dealing with digestive issues, struggling with pelvic pain, embarrassed by urinary stress incontinence, or wanting to feel confident and fit after baby….(even if it’s been 30 years), so that their energy and attention can shift towards doing all the things they love to do.”
It can be very confusing to decide exactly what you should do if you have digestive issues---chronic constipation or IBS. You’ve likely heard a lot of options such as…
❓ A family member tells you to take a laxative.
❓ A colleague mentions going to see a nutritionist.
❓ Dr Google recommends getting a squatty potty.
❓ A friend suggests that you are not eating enough fruits and vegetables.
❓ All while the doctor tells you to take a stool softener after your tests come back “normal”.
It’s overwhelming to try to make a decision with all these choices…what will happen if you don’t make the right one?
Most people get stuck trying to make a decision about what to do next. They go days, weeks, months (even years!) without taking action.
When It Comes To Solving Something Serious Like Chronic Constipation or IBS…
You must choose the right provider for your health. If you don’t, you could end up being dependent on laxatives for the rest of your life or trying to learn to live with the unpredictable cycle that IBS brings.
Getting the “least-invasive”, most natural treatment is VITAL to you managing your chronic constipation or IBS and keeping it from ruling your day.
To do that, you have to not just treat the symptoms, but have a provider who is willing to figure out HOW to keep Your Symptoms Away.
At Nancy Branberg Physical Therapy we’ve created a 3-step process to get help you with your Digestive Issues AND make sure they don’t come back again.
Step #1 - We Want To Listen To Your Story
Our medical system is frustrating. You wait weeks, sometimes months, for an appointment, only to get to talk to the doctors for 10 minutes before they have to run to the next patient and you’re left sitting there wondering, “What just happened?”
Even most physical therapy clinics operate this way. They’re not attentive, they’re fast-paced, and your therapist doesn’t have time to complete a thorough assessment.
This is why our first step is to listen to your story.
After working with lots of women with digestive issues, we know that no two women are alike. Each woment has a different body, a different history, and different types of pain.
That is why our first step is to have an open conversation and time for you to tell your story. That way we get a deep understanding of what’s going on not just with your body, but also how it’s impacting your life.
Step #2 - Find Out WHAT are the Best First Steps to Treat
What Other People Just Like You Are Saying About
Nancy Branberg Physical Therapy…
"It is no exaggeration to say that Nancy Branberg has magic hands. Nancy worked closely with me to develop a realistic exercise routine that made sense with my schedule. She has a holistic approach that addresses not just musculoskeletal issues, but eating patterns, sleeping habits, and child care routines. It was very important for me to continue working with Nancy even though it was not covered by my insurance. Our collaboration had a direct and lasting impact on my overall health I am grateful for the best referral I have ever had!"
Nancy is very compassionate about your pain, and is very skilled at releasing painful muscle and myofascial issues. I have had a lot of recurring problems with my SI Joint and pelvic muscles and Nancy has always been willing to keep working on those areas until the pain is resolved.
"Nancy has been a change agent for me. She taught me about the important relationship between the urinary tract and bowels and that helping one improves the health of the other. She taught me exercises which I do daily to improve my need to constantly urinate. Nancy is extraordinarily gentle and effective."
I haven't looked back since I was referred to Nancy by another physical therapist who said she was the best around for my “gut issues”. She was absolutely right - following rectal cancer and the attendant surgeries, my gut has struggled to behave consistently. Nancy has helped me immeasurably, her visits keeping my abdomen on an even keel.
