Central Texas Myofascial Release is unique in its approach to pelvic floor issues by utilizing a Fascial focus in our evaluation and treatment.  We understand that the treatment of the pelvic floor can not ignore the whole body system in which it is located!

Fascial restrictions can place stress and pressures that affect the urinary, reproductive, lymphatic, and musculoskeletal systems leading to common pelvic diagnoses.  By releasing these restrictions we can often dramatically improve how these body systems are able to correct themselves.

Erin Arnold PT, MPT, LMT uses a combination of Myofascial Release, internal and external manual techniques, home program education, dietary modification, behavioral modification, pelvic floor relaxation techniques, pelvic floor strengthening, breathing pattern coordination patterns, and modalities as needed to treat any of your issues.

Erin is dedicated to making each person dealing with pelvic floor issues feel safe and comfortable throughout the treatment process.  She realizes that this is a sensitive area and a sensitive condition for most people!  Her compassionate care and knowledge about this subject is a valuable resource to our patients.
