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

In physical therapy school, I learned about the evolving specialty of physical therapy for pelvic health. This exciting new field combined my interest in the human body with my desire to help people improve their quality of life. I find it rewarding to treat patients who deal with incontinence, lymphedema, sexual dysfunction, pelvic pain, and side effects of cancer.  I look forward to bettering people’s health, wellness, and vitality.
