Very professional practice. Considering the techniques used for this type of therapy, you want very knowledgeable, professional and compassionate therapists. That’s exactly what I receive here. The level of knowledge and advice offered is amazing. I highly recommend Sharon and the therapists at Pelvic Health Solutions. S.B.
“I am honored to review the services you provided me during my 6 sessions at Pelvic Health Solutions in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida following my recent prostatectomy. You successfully set the tone for our sessions during my first visit, helping me overcome my personal discomfort. Through all sessions, I found your guidance both beneficial and informative. Your explanations were supported by the handouts for each exercise, giving me a reference at home. When I struggled with progress, I needed your openness of our discussions to support the rebuilding of my pelvic muscles. I strongly recommend your services to anyone who is scheduled for a prostatectomy or who may need similar post-surgical support. Thank you Gail O’Neill and Pelvic Health Solutions. Respectfully, J.H”
"After having prostate surgery my Doctor recommended Mrs.Gail O'Neill, PT to assist with developing my pelvic floor muscles post surgery. I absolutely & would highly recommend Mrs. O'Neill as she not only is an excellent therapist, but she genuinely cares about her patients. From my point of view with prostate surgery you are essentially dealing with two separate issues. The first is the recovery from the surgery & the second is dealing with various concerns, incontinence & erectile dysfunction. In that light, I would highly recommend that a surgical candidate plan a visit with Mrs. ONeill prior to surgery,& by doing such one would not only learn how to do the kegels properly but also one could gain a much better understanding regarding incontinence & erectile dysfunction. My post surgery visits with Mrs. O'Neill were most beneficial & directed me on a plan for a much more rapid " understanding " & recovery. Without her professional assistance, I am absolutely positive that my mental & physical recovery would have taken much longer,& therefore I certainly recommend Mrs. ONeill for pre & post prostate therapy."
"I was referred to Gail O'Neill by my colorectal surgeon for pelvic floor musculature rehabilitation related to rectal prolapse. I found Gail to be professional, knowledgeable & caring. The exercises she taught me would not only help with the prolapse, but also mitigate the effects of upcoming radiation therapy for prostate cancer."
"Men don’t like to talk about “leaking”. Gail made my situation easier to discuss and as a result she was able to work with me to alleviate my problem. A prior therapist did nothing for me. Gail is the real deal."
"Thank you for your expertise and your kindness. Our community is blessed to have you...and I am grateful that I found you. Thanks again for all your help. All my best wishes."
I recently had robotic surgical removal of my prostate. About 6 weeks prior to my surgery, the surgeon recommended that I begin Kegel exercises to strengthen the pelvic floor which would help with incontinence from the surgery. The surgeon recommended that I go to a physical therapist who specializes in pelvic floor therapy. I was fortunate enough to find Gail O’Neil who was very experienced with this type of therapy. Gail worked with me to prepare for my surgery by teaching me variations of the Kegel exercises and putting me on a program to pursue over the 4 weeks leading up to the surgery. I followed Gail’s regime very diligently over the month prior to surgery. The surgery was very successful. I was counselled by the surgeon to expect certain side effects from the surgery which included incontinence which could last for 3 to 12 months, or in some cases beyond. Happily, from day 1, after removal of the catheter, I had no issues with incontinence. I attribute this great outcome to the help and supervision that Gail provided prior to my surgery. Gail indicated to me that most men who have not done the preparatory work which I did, do not generally have the same success with this problem. I highly recommend addressing the pelvic floor strengthening in advance of prostate removal surgery.
I was advised to start Pelvic Floor physical therapy prior to my prostatectomy. I was SO lucky to find Gail O'Neill. Gail is very caring and knowledgeable and she taught me how to strengthen my pelvic floor muscles. I did this for 2 months prior to surgery - and my recovery from surgery could not have been better. I had no incontinence and minimal sexual function changes. The exercises that Gail showed me took minimal time and effort, yet I'm convinced they made all the difference to my rapid surgical recovery. I can not imagine recovering as well as I did without Gail's efforts.
