“My life has become my own again”

A few months ago, a friend sent me this article out of the blue about Trista at Coresetfitness! Seemed odd at the time but shortly thereafter I experienced a bulge from my vagina that I realized was a prolapse. Immediately I reached out to Trista, who advised me by email that I needed a diagnosis in order to determine a treatment plan with her.

She referred me to Chana at Vital Physio Therapy  in Toronto as I was due to visit there in a few months. Chana was going to be out on maternity leave so she referred me to Sara Buckham. I booked with both Sara and Trista for the first day I was in Toronto!

Upon arrival in Toronto, I immediately visited with Sara who put me on a 6 week program of exercises to do at home and diagnosed me with a Stage 2 almost Stage 3 bladder prolapse. Weekly visits with her were already in place prior to my Initial Visit as appointments are difficult to get so I booked well in advance.

The next day, with my diagnosis, I had my Initial Visit with Trista and began treatment for Hypopressive training. Appointments for an Initial and weekly one hour follow up visits with Trista had already been put in place as well. She started to teach me a program that I would take home with me.

After a six week regime with Trista, I returned to Sara for my final diagnosis before returning home. My diagnosis had changed to an almost Stage 1 improving from an almost Stage 3 prolapse. Stage 1 is asymptomatic and the goal for my pelvic health.

My program at home at this time takes a little over half an hour every day to continue to strengthen my pelvic floor with a Hypopressive breathing and exercise routine from Trista and an exercise routine from Sara with increasing difficulty to work on over time.

Between both Sara and Trista, my life has become my own again. I am still very conscious of my every day life and how it affects my pelvic floor health but have the skills now necessary to relieve any symptoms from my daily living. PLEASE if you have any indication of a prolapse, seek out Trista and Sara right away and be healed now! There is no reason to live with this condition! You can heal yourself with their guidance without the need for a pessary or surgery! Even at 64 years old!
