Why I practice in women's health PT...

As a student in the health field, I found it disappointing that the majority of clinical research that our current medical model is based on, was focused on men. While diseases and certain conditions are shared between the sexes, women’s bodies respond to treatment and present with illness and injuries differently. As a woman, I want to be a part of establishing women’s centered care in order to improve treatment offered, while supporting the unique changes that occur in our bodies throughout the lifespan.

Specializing in women’s health has deepened my PT practice, and allowed me the unique opportunity to treat dysfunctions associated with childbirth, pregnancy, menopause, female athletes, chronic pain, osteoporosis, fibromyalgia, and complications from cancers common to women.
