“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 floor dysfunction
Pain with sex
Lower back pain
Groin pain (when it hurts just to sit)
And much more. If it’s down there, I’ll help clear it up.
