The Female Athlete

pregnancy is temporary, postpartum is forever

I began concierge based physical therapy to focus on the person in front of me. The mindset and body of a female athlete deserves someone who understands their needs, goals and experiences. Female athletes, postpartum female athletes in particular, are not given enough guidance to continue their lives at the level they were accustomed. Working together we collaborate on a long term plan for health and function that is right for you. “Listen to your body” is not enough; without the right guidance, this advice can become frustrating after a major life event like pregnancy and birth as well as an injury. I’m here to help you achieve your goals.

How am I different?

  • I am a “one stop shop”. Having Board Certification in Orthopedics, I can treat your low back pain, shoulder pain and any other issues that may arise in your return to exercise. My results are quicker and my outcomes are better than conventional therapy because you are invested in your care.

  • I bridge the gap between the postpartum and return to exercise and athleticism. My goal is to work 1:1 and create customized programs for you.

  • Do you experience leaking with running, exercise, jumping rope or Crossfit? Have pain with exercise or having pelvic organ prolapse? These are all common but not normal. We will evaluate you and come up with a plan based on your findings and your lifestyle.

  • I evaluate you as a whole person, not just a body part. We are able to address your needs and treat accordingly.

  • I am able to perform lifting assessments and help you also return safely after pregnancy to more strenuous activity such as Crossfit , running , or any sports .

  • Pregnancy is temporary, postpartum is forever. It doesn’t matter if your baby is 1 month, 1 year or 20 years old; if you are having pain or limitations, I can help.

  • * before you begin any exercise program you should consult your MD . This is not medical advice, however a guideline for safe return to exercise.
