Compassionate Care for Problems “Down There”

It’s more than just a clever rhyme: as The Pelvic PT, I believe that if you are going to entrust your amazing and incredible body to a healthcare provider, she needs to create a welcoming, safe space in which you can ask the questions you have and get the answers you need. You and I will collaborate on the goals that are important to you, and together we will create a plan to make those goals a reality and get you on the road to better health. I believe everyone deserves to have a happy bladder, healthy bowels, enjoyable intercourse, and a strong, pain-free pelvic floor — don’t you?

MEET THE DOCTOR

I received my B.A. in Psychology from Barnard College and went on to pursue my Doctorate of Physical Therapy at New York University (NYU). Several years after graduation, I found my passion in pelvic floor physical therapy: there is so much need and so much good to be done! I especially love helping postpartum moms navigate the world of issues “down there” by giving them the knowledge and tools they need to tackle any bowel, bladder or sex-related problems they may be dealing with at the moment. Collaborative and compassionate care are the hallmarks of my practice.

I’m also a firm believer in life-long learning, and carve out time throughout the year to attend conferences, take continuing education courses, and stay up-to-date on new research in the field. In this way, I can provide the best possible care to my patients. I’ve taken extensive coursework in pelvic health topics through the renowned Herman & Wallace Pelvic Rehabilitation Institute as well as the Section on Women’s Health of the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA), and assist in teaching courses as my schedule permits. I have been a member of the APTA since 2012, and am also a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS), a Wilderness First Responder (WFR), a self-defense (Krav Maga) instructor, and a licensed New York State senior outdoor guide with the NYC-based company, Discover Outdoors.

PATIENTS SAY

“Judith is a wonderful pelvic floor PT. She is incredibly bright, knowledgeable, and supportive, and she has really helped me reduce pain and increase functionality in the months I’ve worked with her. I’d absolutely recommend her for other mamas who have had difficult deliveries!” – J.L.

“Before I saw Judith, I couldn’t sit down for more than 5 minutes without being in pain. It was the worst. I had a big trip coming up for work and I was dreading it, I didn’t even know if I could go. After the first appointment, I felt probably fifty percent better. It was amazing! In a few visits I was back to my old self… all before I even left for my trip.” – D.S.

I felt great after seeing Judith, plus I was empowered with the new information I gained about my condition. I must say how easy it was to talk to her about the things that I’ve been embarrassed about for years. Plus her confidence, knowledge and professionalism convinced me I’m in the right hands after just one visit!” – K.H.

“I really enjoyed my sessions with Judith and so appreciate her skills. I learned so much about my body and how I can help myself get stronger and feel like my old self again. It definitely took me a while, but she helped every step of the way.” – A.K.
