Helping Woman with Fertility, Pelvic Floor Health, Sexual Wellness

Infertility can be a difficult, emotional path. Dr. Brenda Heinecke, owner and pelvic floor physical therapist at Revitalize Physical Therapy, has designed a unique program to address infertility that includes a combination of holistic and manual therapy approaches. Through a hands-on, personalized and cohesive approach, she specializes in helping women live a healthy and active life.

“For those looking to optimize fertility or that have been struggling with mechanical or unexplained infertility, addressing stress, nutrition, gut and vaginal health, along with physical factors, can provide positive outcomes,” Heinecke says. “This can be done in conjunction with fertility treatment, intrauterine insemination (IUI) and in vitro fertilization (IVF).”

Heinecke notes that holistic approaches can be less invasive than traditional fertility treatments, while working to address physical factors affecting fertility. “For example, there can be fascial adhesions that restrict movement through the fallopian tubes, restrictions around the cervix that make it difficult for sperm to successfully pass through, or limited blood flow to the tissue.”

According to, manual therapy techniques, along with stress relief, proper nutrition and correcting gut imbalances, can help treat infertility issues. “In addition to addressing physical limitations within the pelvis and reproductive organs, our program provides guidance for other nutritional and lifestyle factors that are known to impact fertility.”

Heinecke adds that she and her staff have worked closely with fertility specialists in the area to provide their treatment in conjunction with treatment options such as IUI and IVF to help achieve a successful outcome. “Fertility treatment is time-consuming, emotional and costly, so we are proud to be able to help couples through this process.”

Heinecke’s goal is to help more women become familiar with her program, since many women are unaware that specialized physical therapy can help resolve infertility. “We hope that this program will begin to be viewed as an early treatment option that women can try before starting medical fertility treatments,” Heinecke says. “It is much less invasive and costly, and it is often enough to lead to a successful outcome without needing fertility treatment.”
