When I came to work with Teena at Fyzical Dallas, I had been experiencing pain with intercourse for almost three years. With weekly biofeedback sessions, daily stretches, and working with a set of graduated dilators daily, we were able to eliminate the pain almost completely. Thanks to Teena and Morcelia, my husband and I were able to have pain free sex for the first time on our third anniversary. - K. M.
After a year of painful intercourse and nearly two years of no intercourse, I had to see the doctor for any help. My doctor sent me to Teena at Fyzical Dallas. I must admit I was worried nothing would work out, but I was wrong! Teena helped me strengthen my pelvic floor and learn to relax it at the same time. The exercises helped monumentally in reaching my goal; pain free sex with my husband. Teena's encouragement helped me overcome the mental stress of the situation and now I forward to being intimate with my husband. I am eternally grateful to Teena and Fyzical Dallas for giving me my (sex) life back! - M. H.
I finally started to ask the doctors that I have seen after two years of painful intercourse. I was always told by every doctor, I am too young to have painful intercourse just try again. I felt that I would never truly have pain free intercourse with my husband. I finally found a doctor that knew what I was talking about because she suffered from the same symptoms as I had. She put me in contact with Teena and Fyzical Dallas. She was heaven sent. Teena and her team really cares and make you feel welcome. Teena not only cares for you as a patient but as a friend. She and her staff truly want to know you on a personal level. After working with Teena and her staff for about eight months, I can honestly say intercourse is not painful. I tell everyone I know about Teena and Summit. I recommend them to anyone who needs any type of physical therapy. My husband wouldn't even want to touch me a year ago due to the fact that he was afraid he would hurt me and now I can't get him to stop. Whoever doubts that this will work and they have painful intercourse I would say take a chance and try Teena. You won't be disappointed in fact you will be doing a happy dance. - A. K.
Before I came, I was experiencing a variety of problems that mimicked MS (neurogenic bladder/retention, constipation, tingling legs, numbing toes, loss of feeling in my hand). I had experienced those problems for more than six years with worsening symptoms over the last two. After just a couple of months of therapy, I am pain free and more importantly medicine-free. Teena diagnosed my problem almost immediately despite being passed from doctor to doctor over the last few years. Thank you for your insight into my bladder dysfunction that has resulted in a cure all for my ailments. For the first time in years, I feel great-no numbness, no tingling, no bladder dysfunctions, no constipation and pain free intercourse. - J. D.
I am very happy with the treatment I received. It has worked. In the beginning I thought this is not helping and I was ready to call my doctor to cancel all appointments but now after six treatments and three months I am 90% better. My dyspareunia is gone, no more itching and discomfort. - P. J.
Before coming to Fyzical Dallas I could barely use a tampon without experiencing pain. I'd never been able to do a pelvic exam and my husband and I couldn't have sex. After about six months of PT I no longer feel nervous or tense and I'm able to finally enjoy pain free sex with my husband! - A. P.
Initially my pain was literally at a 10 whenever I ran, was in the sun, sitting, standing. Now with the treatments of TMR (total motion release) and dilator, my pain has decreased to a three. I still can't wear shorts but I can run and be in the sun. I can now sit without wanting to scream. As more time has gone on the pain is decreasing. I am now able to wear certain underwear for more than five hours. I feel like more of a person now. - C. D.
My pelvic floor muscles were very tight and I experienced a lot of sharp pain. Now I've learned how to relax my muscles and I don't experience any pain, just a little tightness initially. - K. E.
I came to Fyzical to see Teena due to issues with painful intercourse for 14-15 years. Sex life did not exist at all or very little during these many years. My internist sent me to see a urologist and when I told her my issues she sent me here to Teena. After all these years telling my Obgyn Doctors and they would tell me bare the pain that they knew nothing what might help. Thanks for the angels from above my, my urologist knew what to do and send me to therapy. My sex life is pain free and we are two happy people falling in love all over again. - C. B.
When I started I did not empty my bladder and woke up several times at night to use the bathroom. After my therapy, six weeks I have improved on emptying my bladder and my only get up is once a night, if that. - L. Z.
I came to Fyzical after experiencing occasional incontinence for almost three years since giving birth to my daughter. I have had a wonderful experience here at Fyzical. Teena was my therapist and she has been very friendly and supportive. Teena explained to me all the treatment options I had which helped me make an informed decision. She walked me through all the procedures and exercises and kept me informed about my progress. I really enjoyed all my sessions with Teena as her various stories kept me entertained at home. I am very satisfied with my progress at Fyzical and my incontinence issues has completely resolved. I would highly recommend this place to my friends and family as they are very friendly, approachable, knowledgeable and professional. - N. J.
After my third and fourth child were born I had weakened pelvic floor muscles and occasional incontinence when sneezing or coughing. Fyzical Dallas really helped me to tighten and tone those muscles. I thought I was doing kegal exercises but found out I wasn't really doing them correctly. After a few months with biofeedback, those muscles are much stronger. Thank you so much! - H. C.
I have achieved the results I needed to allow me to more readily urinate. I can also get down on the floor and up off the floor by myself which I could not do in the beginning and my balance has improved. All of the staff is lovely, kind and caring, and I established a real rapport with Teena. I would recommend Fyzical to anyone who needs help in this or other areas. - D. O.
Before coming to Fyzical, I was unable to have painless bowel movements, constipation diarrhea and had to manually evacuate. I was taking suppositories and stool softeners. I now do not have to take any suppositories stool softeners, very little pain going to the bathroom and very little blood; occasionally caused by straining. Before starting my pain level was above 10 and now that I am done it is at a two. - C. W.
In the beginning I was unable to sit longer than 5-10 minutes without standing to relieve the pain in my right groin, which meant life was primarily in a standing position. It was not fun! My pain level was anywhere from 7-10. The pain would awaken me through the night which meant I awakened exhausted. Today I can sit for a couple of hours with little or no pain. The past 2 days I say I had little to no pain in the groin. At this point I feel I need more energy and strength to maintain the pace in life I want. What a blessing to have been referred by surgeon to our facility. - K. B.
When I just came to PT for pelvic floor therapy I was at a consistent level of pain, ranging from 5-8 daily with burning, pressure and throbbing in my vulvar area. Now, after therapy, I am at mild discomfort with little pressure/ throbbing and pain level close to a one consistently. I feel with continued PT, I will be at a zero level soon. - K. H.
I am three years out from prostate surgery and was having stress incontinence issues requiring use of pads 1-2 times per week, and constant leakage in the evening. Since coming to Teena, I am markedly better as much as 80%, no longer have to wear pads, and am dry most day. I am more than pleased. Thank your for recommending therapy. I wish I had not had to wait three years; the urologist I saw never recommended therapy. - M. W.
After about four months of physical therapy, my pelvic floor seems much more relaxed and pain level have gone down from about an eight or nine to about a three. I am very pleased with the result and see the possibility of a pain free life in the near future. - J. D.
Before coming to Fyzical Dallas, I would end every day in soreness and pain. I dreaded sitting in school, knowing I would wind up taking pain relievers to sleep. After the first physical therapy session I noticed a clear difference in my pain. I only needed two more sessions before my pain was completely gone. Teena at Fyzical Dallas is a miracle worker. - T. B.
When I showed up on Fyzical Dallas' door things were not that great. I was experiencing severe incontinence and was severely depressed. After receiving biofeedback treatment administered by Teena my life greatly improved. I have not had any "accidents" in over two months and have a much better outlook on life in general. Thank you Teena! - J. F.
In July 2012, I was diagnosed with prostate cancer. I had surgery to remove the prostate in August. After surgery I was told to do 500 kegal exercises a day to strengthen my muscles. This was very frustrating. On my last visit to my surgeon we discussed PT. I felt it was the right thing for me since I was very frustrated by the incontinence. I started PT February 2013. I was given a series of exercises to do each day and each week Teena noted improvement of the resting and active muscles. After eight weeks of therapy I have noticed major improvement of the incontinence. I now only use one guard a day and I feel that is only a measure of safety "vanity" for me. - B. B.
Before starting therapy I was having coccyx pain so bad that it was hard to sit still long enough to sing my daughter to sleep at night, much less work at my desk. My pain has gone from almost all day every day to rarely if ever. And for those rare times when I experience pain I have exercises that remedy the pain quickly without needing pain meds. I don't why I waited so long to get help. - R. L.
