Are you:

If you answered “Yes” to any of these questions, you are in the right place!
Many postpartum women in Oakland, Des Moines, and San Diego suffer unnecessarily because they’re told…
The Truth Is...

At Pro + Kinetix, We Help Active Adults And Athletes Get Back To Workouts and Sports They Enjoy without surgery, stopping activities they love, or relying on pain medicine. When It Comes To Solving Postpartum Pain and Leakage Problems and Ensuring a COMPLETE Postpartum Recovery...

You must choose the right provider for your health. If you don’t, you could end up getting surgery (when it could have been avoided), being dependent upon medications or painkillers… or living with steadily worsening symptoms the rest of your life.

Getting the “least-invasive”, most natural treatment is VITAL to you stopping your leakage, abdominal separation issues, pelvic floor problems or postpartum hip/back/pelvic pain and keeping it from ever coming back.
Working with a provider who understands that the entire body works together is vital to your recovery. Our bodies go through incredible changes during pregnancy and postpartum periods. We must address the changes in the neck/back/diaphragm/core/pelvic floor/pelvis, posture, strength and how we’re using our bodies to fully recover. It’s much, much more than just Kegels!

To ensure a full recovery, we have to not just treat the symptoms. You must have an expert provider who is willing to get to the ROOT CAUSE of your symptoms and dysfunction. That’s when you’ll get a PERMANENT solution to your postpartum problems.

At Pro + Kinetix we’ve created a 3 step process to get rid of your postpartum symptoms AND make sure you don’t have to deal with them ever 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 learn what goals are important to you, or to work with you one-on-one. That’s why we operate so differently!

And that’s why our first step is to listen to your story.

After successfully working with many women with postpartum issues, we know that no two people are alike. Each person has a different body, a different history, and different types of pain and symptoms.

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.
Perhaps you’ve been given the label of Prolapse, Diastasis Recti, Pelvic Floor Dysfunction, Incontinence, Sacroiliac (SI) Joint Pain or Hip/Back/Pelvic Pain.

You could have been told that your only choice was to rest, take medicine, or give it time.

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 or symptoms is different. No one has the exact same problem caused by the exact same thing as another person.

Our goal at Pro + Kinetix is to find that original cause of your problem, so not only does your pain go away, it STAYS AWAY!

We understand that you still might be skeptical or unsure if Integrative Physical Therapy is right for you. That’s why we created a free Discovery Visit. (Yes! That means the first session is ON US!)

Our Discovery Visits 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 PROBLEM & 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 (yes, even running and jumping!) without fear of pain, stiffness or bladder control issues coming back.
…be able to play with your kids, lift, and carry them with no problems.
…return to intimacy with your spouse without fear of pain.
…get back to your active lifestyle you love (yoga, running, tennis – whatever you love to do!).
…feel strong, confident and even sexy again as your body heals from that Diastasis Recti/Abdominal Separation and recovers its core strength fully.

Our best clients are those who are motivated and ready to win back their active life. (Even if they feel stuck right now!)

Want to know more about our availability and costs before making any commitment to coming in?

You don’t have to sacrifice the activities & family lifestyle you love over problems that can be fixed.

Sincerely,
Dr. Dayna Candella, PT, DPT

5/5
“If you have any pain anywhere on your body, please go see on of the amazing therapists at Pro+Kinetix Physical Therapy & Performance. I specifically saw Dr. Colin for some severe hip pain due to overworking, overloading and not stretching that area. After just one visit it did wonders. He not only worked the area, but gave me mobility, stretches, and strengthening exercises. What a game changer! I saw him again recently for lower back pain, and he covered all basis when it came to the posterior chain. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.”
