Pelvic floor physical therapy utilizes the pelvic floor muscle group and the surrounding muscles to help with the functions of pelvic floor organs, bowel and bladder control, and assists in sexual arousal and orgasm. Through a variety of techniques ranging from the education of proper body mechanics, manual therapy, and pelvic floor specific exercises, the therapist will guide the treatment plan for the various pelvic floor dysfunction. The therapy will include a better understanding of how to reduce pain, increase awareness of proper body mechanics and everyday movements, and allow for successful return to daily activities. 

Ergonomic Assessment

The spine is a terrible thing to waste.  We provide ergonomic assessment, recommendations for ergonomic modifications, body mechanics and postural exercise training to help your spine withstand all of the daily physical stressors. By using new and advanced methods of screening, your physical therapist will be able to make necessary adjustments on the spot to create a better understanding of proper body mechanics for you to continue to use during your every day activities.

Injury Prevention

Though we can’t fully prevent injuries, a growing body of scientific evidence supports the need for preventative interventions. For example, the Game Changers and PEP exercise program have been shown to be successful in reducing ACL injuries in female soccer players. In addition to the above programs, being informed about any risk factors you may have could greatly reduce your risk of getting injured. Specialized PT Solutions wants to help you identify these risk factors, teach you the proper training techniques and provide you with safe and effective training programs.

Following completion of his schooling he came home to San Jose to be closer to family and begin his career.  During this time, his knowledge and leadership allowed him to serve as clinic director and help thousands of people with various orthopedic conditions. His experience with injuries and his personal recovery from two separate anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstructive surgeries give him valuable insight to the recovery process, both emotionally and physically.

In 2008, Luc completed the Folsum Physical Therapy Long-Term Orthopedic Physical Therapy Course, a yearlong intensive manual therapy course, which was instrumental in his professional development and treatment of spine disorders.  In 2009, he was certified by the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) as an Orthopedic Clinical Specialist (OCS).  As an orthopedic specialist, Luc has demonstrated knowledge, skill, and experience exceeding that of a general physical therapist in the orthopedic setting.
