Pelvic floor dysfunction
"I was hooked immediately." Raquelle began taking opioids after a tractor-trailer rear-ended her car, causing back pain. And like so many others, she became addicted to the medication that was supposed to help. It started her down a dark path; she lost friends and family relationships. She was unemployed.
Thankfully, Raquelle's story doesn't end there. She got into treatment for drug addiction and then discovered a beacon of hope to address her pain without using opioids: physical therapy. Things were finally looking up.
Unfortunately, that's when Raquelle was thrown another curve ball. She was diagnosed with interstitial cystitis (inflammation of the bladder) and myofascial pelvic pain (a condition that causes chronic musculoskeletal pain in the pelvic floor). But this time, Raquelle knew where to turn for help.
Watch as Raquelle shares her inspirational story of strength, healing, resilience and the power of pelvic health physical therapy.
