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.
