Michelle Syska - Featured Certified Pelvic Rehabilitation Practitioner

In our weekly feature section, Pelvic Rehab Report is proud to present this interview with newly certified practitioner Michele Syska, PT, PRPC

Describe Your Clinic:

Orthopedic manual based.  I love figuring out how mechanical issues may be affecting the current presentation.   I would also characterize my practice as open.  I’m up for trying new ideas either from course work, other therapists or patients.  I enjoy learning from the experience of others and have an open mind to many techniques.

What/who inspired you to become involved in pelvic rehabilitation?

I spoke with the therapist who had started the program at my clinic.  She helped to bring knowledge and understanding to the world of pelvic floor dysfunction.  She helped me gain motivation to attend my first course.  Upon attending Herman and Wallace level 1, I can truly say that it was Holly and Kathe’s unique and passionate teaching that solidified my decision.

What population do you find most rewarding in treating and why?

Male chronic pelvic pain.  For the most part, women are used to the medical profession “messing” with them.  After having several paps and babies, most women don’t arrive with the embarrassment and anxiety that more often is associated with male pelvic pain.  It’s rewarding to be able to bring comfort and relief to these patients through education and understanding.  The progression from start to finish is typically more dramatic in the way they improve their overall comfort in talking about the dysfunction and the re-integration into their work and social lives.

What Role do you See Pelvic Rehab Playing in Overall Patient Health?

One’s ability to be continent, have normal sexual function and go through their day without pain, play a large role in general well-being.  Looking for a restroom at every turn does not make for a very pleasant day.  An unhealthy pelvic floor can be extremely debilitating.  It can get in the way of basic daily activities and significantly affect ones social and work life.
