KORT (KENTUCKY ORTHOPEDIC REHAB TEAM)
First thing first: what is the pelvic floor? It’s a group of muscles across the base of the pelvis which support and control your organs, including the bladder, bowels and sexual organs. When these muscles weaken or shorten, a number of issues can arise, making daily life uncomfortable .Pelvic floor therapy is a specialized type of physical therapy that focuses on the treatment of the pelvic floor muscles. It can include a number of treatments to the muscles in and even surrounding the pelvic floor. Generally speaking, treatments focus on muscle strengthening, stretching, or reeducation.
Pelvic floor therapy treats a number of diagnoses such as: urinary incontinence (leakage), urinary urgency, prolapse, interstitial cystitis, pain with intercourse, endometriosis, fecal incontinence, IBS, or chronic constipation.
Men have the same muscles in a slightly different orientation across the base of their pelvis. Men specifically may have urinary leakage after prostatectomy or prostate cancer treatments. Pelvic floor therapy can help these issues as well.
KORT has knowledgeable and professional clinicians who understand the unique challenges that pelvic floor issues present. KORT has more board-certified therapists than any other physical therapy group in Kentuckiana. For more information, or to schedule an appointment, visit KORT.com

DOWNTOWN DRS. BROWN
Imagine a primary care experience that is readily available, less rushed and leaves each patient feeling truly listened to and understood. Imagine physicians who make time to discuss a variety of treatments, both traditional and non-traditional, and who are happy to take a call or text to immediately and directly answer any follow-up questions or concerns. Imagine all of this in a convenient location in the heart of Lexington.
While that experience may be just a dream for many, Downtown Drs. Brown is a primary care office designed to make all of this possible, and more. The married two- physician team of Downtown Drs. Brown opened in September of 2018 at the corner of Jefferson and West 2nd Street in the former Jefferson Center Building. They opened their membership-based practice in an effort to circumvent many of the frustrations patients currently
feel with primary care. Membership medicine, sometimes referred to as “concierge medicine”, is a form of medical practice that emphasizes wellness, disease prevention and the patient’s overall experience. A membership with Downtown Drs. Brown includes an annual comprehensive physical exam that delves into many aspects of physical and mental health, as well as lifestyle management. The result is a customized wellness plan with follow-up intervals, communication and support for optimum health and disease prevention.
Dr. Cady (Blackey) Brown and Dr. Ryan Brown are both trained in Internal Medicine and have been practicing for many years. They are thrilled to be able to offer a primary care experience that puts the focus on what’s most important: the doctor-patient relationship. The unique, upbeat practice is a breath of fresh air, making every experience a personal one. Downtown Drs. Brown are accepting new patients and are happy to set up a sit-down meeting with prospective patients to determine if they are the right fit.

WELLWARD REGENERATIVE MEDICINE
Taking an innovative approach to low back pain, Wellward has revolutionized regenerative therapies in the spine.
Disc issues, arthritis, stenosis, sciatica, pinched nerves and other conditions related to the back can cause a host of symptoms ranging from pain to leg weakness or difficulty walking. Wellward has radical therapies that can treat the issue at hand without surgery using your own stem cells and growth factors.
Regenerative injections aim to stimulate the body to repair itself in areas of degeneration. They have been used for decades on patients in pain from aging, overuse or injury. Treatment produces long- lasting relief through stimulating the body’s natural healing response. Most procedures are same day and you walkout on your own.
Dr. Danesh, a Johns Hopkins trained, double board certified physician, has been at the forefront of innovating sustainable treatments for injury and pain. One way he and the Wellward team get to the bottom of pain is a unique process he calls Pain Mapping. A clinician listens to each patient’s story. Together, they review any medical records and do a comprehensive review with a full workup that would otherwise take weeks or months to complete. Patients are given a full explanation of their pain, including triggers to avoid and a treatment plan to maximize health and recovery. This process empowers every patient and helps them thrive, even those with complex problems.
Wellward Regenerative Medicine believes in addressing pain through a comprehensive approach. They address what hurts rather than just masking it. By treating the source, they bridge the gap between functionality and pain. Their consultants are sub-specialty trained anesthesiologists, well versed in the latest technologies and techniques for addressing chronic, neuropathic or cancer-related pain.
Struggling with pain? Make 2020 the year you decide to choose regenerative medicine.
