What to expect:
Susannah practices out of the Women's Wellness and Education Center which has a warm, homey feel. Expect to fill out some brief, but important intake forms and outcome measures prior to evaluation. Day 1, Susannah will take a thorough history, perform initial testing and hopefully have time for some treatment! If you are a pelvic patient, Susannah is a skilled orthopedic physical therapist with a specialist bent in pelvic rehabilitation. The pelvis is complex in its anatomy and bio-mechanical relationships; it is often the overlooked key to unlocking your issue. Depending upon your situation, an internal assessment may be beneficial for your treatment, however, is not a necessity and is ultimately up to the comfort level of the patient.
During follow-up appointments, Susannah likes to pull from her manual therapy tool box which includes modalities such as: myofascial release, visceral mobilization, strain-counterstrain, muscle energy techniques, joint and soft tissue mobilization, and more. Susannah teaches self-awareness and management through interventions like therapeutic exercise (often yoga or mat-based movement), biofeedback, diet and self-care.
Have urinary incontinence? Over 50% of American women aged 20 years and older can say the same! Let's drop the stigma and affordable and convenient care for you! Susannah has developed a group class called 'In Control' to treat the common condition of urinary incontinence with an affordable program.

Susannah offers a free 30-minute in-person consultation to breast cancer survivors. Ideally this consultation would occur at the time of diagnosis before treatment begins. During this session we can discuss your medical plan of care and take baseline objective measurements prior to medical intervention. Physical therapy screening allows for early intervention, education and patient empowerment. Please let your loved ones know about this free screening opportunity.
To schedule, please contact Susannah at 770.356.3132.
Susannah is currently developing exercise programs, educational materials and mindfulness-based curriculum to help women and men over what (for some) has been the biggest hurdle of their lives...a cancer diagnosis . Your experience with cancer was, is, and will forever be unique to you; your input could also be invaluable to another survivor. Susannah is collaborating with a group of survivors who have experienced a breast cancer diagnosis, treatment and side effects, who are willing to share their experience as well as opinions about the content that Susannah is creating.
If you are interested in sharing your perspective about your own journey and providing Susannah with professional feedback about her online content development please e-mail her at Susannah@gmail.com.
