I get asked the question “why did you choose pelvic floor as your specialty?” On a weekly basis. The truth is, in PT school, when given the opportunity to take an elective pelvic health course, I was inspired by the instructor’s stories of the way she helped change peoples’ lives. She spoke of helping men, following prostate surgery, overcome the embarrassing complication of loss of bladder control when they thought they were stuck with the situation for the rest of their lives. She told us about working with newly married couples who were unable to be intimate because a painful pelvic condition prevented it and about the excitement of finding out months after discharge from PT that they were expecting a child. Learning that the average time to diagnosis for a person with pelvic pain is on the scale of years instead of weeks or months fueled my drive to learn the skills to help people in these circumstances. Over the years I have had the privilege of being a part of similar success stories. I am inspired everyday by the the courage it takes for my patients to come in and talk to a relative stranger about such intimate subjects and it is my daily goal to offer a safe space, both physically and emotionally, for them to do so.
I believe in the body’s inherent wisdom and its ability to heal itself, given the chance. It has been my humble passion for the last decade to be a part of that healing alongside my patients. I have a particular fondness for using manual treatment techniques to both diagnose and treat pelvic pain and dysfunction and utilizing movement and exercise to compliment these techniques.
