Private(s) Consultation

Pelvic pain doesn't have to be scary. Knowledge is an analgesic. It can be a 'pain softner'. Can you think of a time when just understanding something took the pain away or reduced the threat? Not knowing what's going on 'down there' is scary and it might increase your pain. Knowlege reduces stress and the right kinda knowledge can reduce pain. 

Private(S) Consultation

“I had been experiencing pain in my pelvic region for over a year. After just one consultation with Dr. Susie Gronski, she was able to isolate what was causing my pain. She is by far one of the most knowledgeable, caring, and informative doctors I’ve met. She was able to take my misconceptions of what was causing my pain and flip it on its head.”

BEFORE WE GO ANY FURTHER…

Here’s what you need to know:


Coming in once won’t be a silver bullet. I’m not going to “fix” your pain in one shot. No one can. Understanding why you hurt requires looking at the whole you, your brain, nerves, other bodily systems, your thoughts, beliefs, values, people in your life, what you've been told and even what you do and where you go. All the parts that make up who you are and how you function interact at the same time.

Getting rid of pain is a process -- or, you can think of it as a road, and I’m giving you the car.

That said, I’ve helped hundreds of people like you to overcome:

  • Pelvic pain

  • Pelvic floor dysfunction

  • Pain with sex

  • Bladder issues

  • Lower back pain

  • Constipation

  • Groin pain (when it hurts just to sit)

  • And much more. If it’s down there, I’ll help clear it up.

 

EXAMPLES OF THINGS WE MIGHT COVER INCLUDE:

  • The lowdown about the brain on pain, and how to apply that knowledge to hurt less every day

  • The role your immune system plays in experiencing pain

  • Ways to reduce unhealthy thoughts, behaviors and language that keep you in the pain cycle

  • Improving your gut health, which profoundly impacts your mood, function, and pain

  • How to use belly breathing -- your secret weapon for calming stress and the nervous system

  • Healthy diet and lifestyle for each of your body's systems

  • Building a web of support to help you reach your goals

  • Other aspects of your life (like environment, relationships, stress, sexuality, mental resilience, etc.) that impact your physical and mental well-being

  • Health and lifestyle coaching to discover your body's own unique set of keys necessary to unlock your healing potential

  • Body awareness and mindfulness techniques that benefit you far beyond pain relief (giving you extra clarity, focus, and resilience in the face of stress)  

  • Manual therapy tailored to meet your specific needs and help you move better
