“I started seeing Elizabeth when I was about 6.5 months pregnant for horrible pubic symphysis dysfunction and stress incontinence. I could hardly walk and was unable to be a functional mother to my 2 year old. I fully expected my symptoms to worsen as the pregnancy progressed and I continued to gain weight, due to the increased pelvic pressure. I sought pelvic PT hoping that I would be able to limit how much worse things would get. Never did I imagine that I would make it to the end of my pregnancy AND experience a full recovery! I’m currently 39 weeks and have none of the symptoms I had when I started treatment.
Not only is Elizabeth extremely knowledgeable and professional, she is incredibly personable, which makes it so much easier to undergo this sensitive type of therapy. She’s an absolutely pleasure to work with and I cannot recommend her enough!”
