MELISSA SCHUBERT, PT
Melissa Schubert has been a physical therapist in the Orlando area for over 20 years and has specialized has a pelvic physical therapist for the past 10 years and the owner of The Balanced Pelvis. She believes that ALL women deserve special care during their pregnancy and after.
As a pelvic physical therapist, she provided relief from pelvic joint or sacro-iliac joint (SIJ) dysfunction and pain with the use of Hesch Method Manual Therapy. Many times the cause of pain or dysfunction is not the location of pain and only treating the location of pain will quite often only give temporary relief.
More recently, her approach to care for moms during pregnancy and after has changed to a much more holistic approach. She is working to become a certified specialist from the Birth Healing Institute. This approach works to alleviate pain and dysfunction that may be holding a person back by addressing the concerns from a body, mind and spirit approach. This approach looks first at past trauma or injury for cause of pain or dysfunction held in the tissues. By address trauma held in the tissues first, it quite often will determine the root cause of pain or dysfunction. Once, this is addressed, then treatment may progress with a graded exposure. By addressing past trauma held in the tissues first, the number of graded exposure sessions are reduced.
