Rebuilding Core Strength Amid Diastasis Recti
Diastasis Recti is more than a cosmetic concern; it’s a functional issue. We delve into the intricacies of abdominal muscle anatomy, educating you on the specific dynamics involved. Guiding you through targeted exercises, our focus extends beyond repair to prevention and long-term core strength. Our goal is to empower you with the tools needed to not only address Diastasis Recti but also cultivate lasting core stability.
Empowerment begins with knowledge, and by choosing our comprehensive wellness approach, you not only receive expert care but also gain valuable insights into your body’s intricate workings.
Misconceptions surrounding women's health issues often lead to delays in seeking help. Whether you've been told surgery is your only option or that you should just "deal with it" postpartum, it's time to challenge these beliefs.
Choosing the Right Path for Women’s Health and Pelvic Floor Solutions at KinetikChain Physical Therapy
Whether you’re dealing with incontinence or diastasis recti, finding the right provider is crucial. At KinetikChain in Denver, CO, we specialize in empowering women to reclaim their lives. We understand the unique challenges you face and tailor our solutions to your individual needs.
It’s overwhelming to try to make a decision with all these choices… what will happen if you don’t make the right one?
Most people get stuck trying to make a decision about what to do next. They go days, weeks, months (even years!) without taking action.
When it comes to addressing pelvic pain, the approach is similar. Choosing the right provider ensures you receive the least-invasive, most natural treatment, leading to a permanent solution to your pain.
At KinetikChain, we don’t just treat the symptoms; we uncover the root causes to provide long-lasting relief. Our goal is to help you regain control, confidence, and the ability to fully embrace all aspects of your life.
Getting the “least-invasive”, most natural treatment is VITAL to you stopping your pain and or urinary incontinence and keeping it from ever coming back.
To do that, you have to not just treat the pain, but have a provider who is willing to figure out WHY these issues happened in the first place. That’s when you’ll get a PERMANENT solution to your problems.
At KinetikChain we’ve created a three step process to get rid of your pain and leaking AND make sure it doesn’t come back again.
STEP #1 - WE WANT TO LISTEN TO YOUR STORY
Our medical system is frustrating. You wait weeks, sometimes months, for an appointment, only to get to talk to the doctors for 10 minutes before they have to run to the next patient and you’re left sitting there wondering, “What just happened?”
Even most physical therapy clinics operate this way. They’re not attentive, they’re fast-paced, and your therapist doesn’t have time to actually touch where you hurt.
This is why our first step is to listen to your story.
After working with lots of people with pain and or urinary incontinence, we know that no two people are alike. Each person has a different body, a different history, and different types of pain.
That is why our first step is to have an open conversation and time for you to tell your story. That way we get a deep understanding of what’s going on not just with your body, but also how it’s impacting your life.
STEP #2 - FIND OUT WHY YOUR SYMPTOMS STARTED
Many people have a diagnosis, or medical term for what’s going on with their body. Maybe their doctor gave it to them, maybe tests showed the diagnosis, or maybe you found it online.
You could have been told that your only choice was to rest, avoidance, or pads.
Sometimes, those things bring temporary relief, but they’re not addressing what CAUSED the problem in the first place.
Every person’s cause of pain and or urinary incontinence is different. No one has the exact same problem caused by the exact same thing as another person.
Our goal at KinetikChain is to find that original cause of your pain, so not only does your pain and issues go away, they STAY AWAY!
We understand that you still might be skeptical or unsure if physical therapy is right for you. That’s why we created a FREE Discovery session. (Yes! That means the first session is ON US!)
Our Free Discovery Visit are meant specifically for those people who are skeptical, unsure, or have even been let down in the past. During the Discovery Visit you’ll find out what’s wrong, how long it’s going to take to fix it, and give you peace of mind that your problem can be fixed naturally!
STEP #3 - GET RID OF THE PAIN & KEEP IT FROM COMING BACK
This is when the big transformations occur. We develop a personalized plan that allows you to…
…Get back to exercising without fear of pain and/or urinary incontinence coming back
…Be able to (play with kids, get back to your workouts, be intimate with your spouse without pain)
…Get back to your pre-pregnancy lifestyle you love
….Be active and mobile and keep up with those full of energy kids without fear of having to pay for it later
Our best clients are those who are motivated and ready to win back and take control of their quality of life. (Even if they feel stuck right now!)

About Dr. Lauren Stollman (Women's Health and Pelvic Floor Specialist)
Do You Feel Embarrassment From Leaking Every Time You Cough, Sneeze, Run, Or Jump?
Would You Like To Find Out How You Can Stop Leakage And Get Back To Your Favorite Activities And Feel Like “You” Again?
Why Do You Work Here?
“KinetikChain fosters an environment of excellence in which I can take the time to understand each person’s story, finding out what matters most in my patient’s life, so that I can provide treatment options and information, and then work efficiently and effectively to get them back to what they love. Their goals are truly my goals, YOUR goals are truly my goals.
I’ve felt the disappointment of not being able to compete due to injuries or pushing through pain just to get through everyday activities and paying for it afterwards, frustrated and uncomfortable. More than that, I also understand the feeling of not knowing what to do or when to address aches and pains; I work to help people better understand their body and condition, healing processes, and movement patterns, so that they can make more informed decisions for their health and help them get back to what they need and love to do.”
In addition to treating sports and typical orthopedic conditions, I choose to specialize in providing care for women’s health and pelvic floor. It took me way too long before I went to seek pelvic floor physical therapy for myself, and I struggled to admit to myself that I should seek help, hoping that everything would just spontaneously get better with time. Once I got the care that I needed, I became inspired to create a new normal of talking about pelvic pain and function, as pelvic health is physical health and mental health. Throughout my physical therapy practice, I have heard so many times “I had to stop [insert favorite activity/sport here] after I had kids because of pelvic pain or leakage” and many women accept this for the rest of their lives, giving up their stress outlet, their enjoyment, their community. My mission is to empower women to challenge this idea, because there are so many things we can do through pelvic floor physical therapy to make real differences to get you back to what you love without fear. Additionally, I have worked with many women who have undergone breast surgeries, including full or partial mastectomies with or without reconstruction, who have experienced chronic significant changes in their function due to scar tissue and tightness, leading to pain or dysfunctions in other areas of the body, making it difficult to “ace” your golf game or even reach up to a high shelf. In learning about their experiences, I have discovered that post-surgical management in this area is significantly lacking, often due to lack of communication or expectations about the significant effects that these surgeries can have on one’s mobility. I work to educate as many people as I can about the importance of seeking care for this so that women, like you, do not have to accept this as a fact of life.
