Lea Themelis PT, DPT, ATC - 9/26/2018

  Lea Being able to speak openly and comfortably about pelvic health is so important. I first heard about pelvic floor physical therapy while pursuing a degree in athletic training. I was doing a clinical rotation with the women’s basketball team and one of our athletes was having issues with pelvic pain. The team physical therapist (PT) didn’t have much knowledge on the topic so she needed to reach out to a specialist in California. I was fortunate to be able to observe the Skype conferences with the athlete and PT. I thought “Wow, you have muscles down there?” And better yet, you can control them, exercise them, and stretch them - just like any other muscle in the body. That was when I knew I wanted to pursue a career in pelvic health physical therapy. I treat male and female patients who have a variety of pelvic floor dysfunctions, including: Urinary and bowel incontinence, urinary retention, constipation, overactive bladder Pain issues: chronic prostatitis, Interstitial Cystitis, pudendal neuralgia, coccydynia, dyspareunia
