Philosophy of  Endometriosis Care:

As a physical therapist practicing for 20 years in orthopedics and 9 years in pelvic health, I treat with a variety of treatment strategies that are patient-specific. I currently co-own Sana Physical Therapy, where treatment and evaluation are an hour in length and one-on-one with the physical therapist,  never using aides or assistants to provide care. I take a holistic approach to treatment, and as both an orthopedic and pelvic health specialist, I utilize my expertise by examining the whole body pertaining to pain and movement dysfunction. I perform manual therapy, soft tissue and myofascial release techniques, and joint mobilizations as necessary. I perform pelvic floor physical therapy for both bladder and bowel dysfunction associated with endometriosis, I am trained to perform internal manual therapy treatment and assessment to address adhesions and restrictions within the pelvic floor. I use down-training and up-training principles along with neuromuscular education and pain science education. I employ exercise prescriptions for my patients needing to regain ROM, improve tissue mobility, and decrease restrictions and adhesions. I spend a long time educating each of my patients on their physical therapy plan of care, home exercise program, and pain and symptom management techniques. I work alongside 2 additional pelvic floor physical therapists, and we collaborate with case management and provide monthly in-service and clinical skill enhancement workshops. We also treat male pelvic floor disorders at our clinic. We have a strong referral source and collaboration from the local physician community treating patients with endometriosis, and we also have an RDN working at our clinic.

I am also yoga and Pilates certified and employ Pilates-based rehabilitation principles as necessary, with patients benefiting from this type of movement-based training and care.
