I really cannot recommend the Healthcare Gallery's physical therapist Lisa Jain highly enough. Lisa was highly recommended to me through a co-worker. I was experiencing excruciating pelvic pain while running long distances and exercising. I was experiencing discomfort even in tasks of daily living like walking or even sitting on a hard chair. This all occurred after pregnancy and the birth of my firstborn. I was still experiencing this pain two years after giving childbirth. I never know if it was normal or not because not a lot of professionals have experience with it aside from PT.
I didn't know what to expect with PT as I did not have a lot of experience with it personally-- what I can say is that Lisa made the entire processe a positive one in so many ways -- the Healthcare Gallery is truly lucky to have a professional like her on staff. She is first and foremost very skilled at what she does. She is extremely detailed and I came away with the experience learning so much about my body and how it works and also about physical therapy. She is someone who is a "fixer." She didn't want to just work on the symptoms -- but find the root of the problem. She also helped me with some non-related pelvic pain related issues. If I mentioned anything -- she wanted to fix it!
She is also extremely personable and even though I was having a hard time dealing with the pelvic pain and even a bit of depression at it had effected one of my greatest passions in life -- running -- I always looked forward to my appointments with her as she is so pleasant to be around and you can tell she genuinely cares about her clients and their well being -- in all facets of their lives -- physically, mentally and their family, etc.
I'll definitely be sharing what I learned about pelvic dysfunction after childbirth with others and recommending Lisa to others! She's phenomenal!
