Breathe. Physical Therapy & Wellness.
We are honored you have chosen us for your rehabilitation and well care. Our focus is on holistic healing and partnership, working with you to identify the true cause of your symptoms. We do this through careful questioning and listening, observation of posture, gait (walking) and movement, as well as the use our hands to feel the mobility of joints, muscles, connective tissues, and nerves. Ultimately, we wish to work with you to accomplish your goals.
Please be prepared for your appointment by wearing clothing that allows free movement and easy exposure of the body part for which you are seeking care. For example, a tank top or sports bra and shorts are an ideal choice for women. There will be an opportunity for changing your clothes if necessary. Please also consider which activities are limited or made more difficult by your symptoms, as this will help us establish goals for care.
If you are a new patient, please call us at 515-255-3932 to book your first appointment. Our staff will discuss your options and ensure you get the right appointment at a time that’s convenient.
If your concerns are pelvic in nature, an internal assessment of your pelvic floor muscles via the vaginal or anal canal may be indicated. You may bring someone to be with you in the room if you feel more comfortable. Here’s what you can expect from your first pelvic floor physical therapy visit. Please be sure to fill out the pelvic health form.
Please also be aware that Breathe. is passionate about educating other physical therapists and students about our treatment methods, so a student or PT observer may be present and participate in your care, with your consent.
Feedback to us and referrals to your friends & relatives help us grow. Please pass those on!
