The Most Ridiculous Pelvic Floor Advice I Got From A Doctor

the tummy team, pelvic floor

Have you noticed how quickly pelvic floor issues are dismissed by the medical community? The sole reason that The Tummy Team exists is that I (Kelly Dean, MPT, and founder) was completely dismissed by the medical community and I refused to give up my search for answers to why my body was falling apart. When the doctor or physical therapist dismisses or minimizes your valid symptoms, you start to dismiss them too. You are either…

From ropes courses to swimming meets, she’s been an inspiration to the rest of us to live our lives fearlessly. But it’s difficult to be fearless when your body holds you back. For some people, a swim meet is an attainable goal to reach. For others, just…

Fearless: Kelly’s Story

  I haven’t always been in this place. It’s taken me a long time to cultivate a fearless attitude towards life. It started when I was 38 years old. At the time, I was not at all sure what was happening with my body. I certainly felt weak and very frumpy, and I seriously believed this is simply what happens after several pregnancies. Even when all my usual exercise routines failed to make an impact, I felt like this is…

Diastasis Recti in Men

Move over ladies! The Tummy Team is for men too!  Diastasis recti in men is more common than we think.

During the course of only 4 sessions, he completely closed his diastasis, relieved his back pain, and measured only 34″ at on his…

Is Core Rehab Really Possible Online?

The question we asked for a long time: can you *really* achieve core rehab through an online program? Rehab is personal and specific, and people have the best results when we can see them and treat them specifically.  But the reality is there are a limited number of therapists who do what we do and yet so many women (and men) who need core rehab. So we set out to answer this question. I (Kelly, PT, and owner of…
